My daughter is 17 months old and I would like another baby when she's in preschool so that she can be a big sister and have a companion to hang out with. What do you moms want to do? Any plans? Any suggestions?

My daughter is only 8 months so right now I feel its to early for another baby.
I was thinking about it though and when I would want another one etc but I dont feel like I could love two children equally! I absolutely adore my daughter and I couldnt even imagine having to share that love with another child. I dont know if anyone else has felt like this but its one of the things stopping me from having another baby

My Son is 10 months and i cant wait for him to have a sibling. lol. i think its better to have kids somewhere in between 1 and 2 years apart. so i plan on jumping back on the pregnancy band wagon hopefully in august or September of this year. or maybe October. My son was born exactly a week after his dad'd birthday. so i dont want that to happen again. lol

Took us 9 years to get pregnant. My Husband got fixed right after we had her because of many complications. No more children for us. We only wanted one anyways.

I didn't want to have two toddlers at the same time so my daughter will be three in July. We have been discusses it and think we are ready for another by next year or so. I would hate to be free and clear and have to start from square one after my daughter is a preteen or something.

We're fairly sure we do not want any more kids. Charlotte is 14 mths. If I was to do this all again (ugh) I would like Charlotte to be at least 4 when the next is born.

I have a 5 year old. The entire time of my son's life I never wanted another child. I am an only child. But as soon as my son turned 5, I wanted another one. Its like a light bulb hit me, and now we are planning for baby #2. I would like baby #3 as well, but we will wait 3 years after baby #2 is born.

my baby girl is 14 months, so I have now gotten around to telling hubby i want #2. It took us so long to conceive ad have mallory, but it was worth all the stress and heartbreaks I endured during the time. Now I have contacted a fertility dr to get number two. I want her to have a blood brother or sister closer to her age. Her half brother is 15 years older, so I would like to have another one of my own. And I loved loved loved being preggo

I was thrilled to fall pregnant when my son was 2.5yo. That ended in miscarriage at 12 weeks. The cycle repeated, on average, every 2 years with the pregnancy lasting 8-10 weeks each time. Finally in late 2000 I fell pregnant again. We had a healthy, VERY bouncy girl -- ADHD - still bouncy, babbly and healthy at nearly 9yo! The age difference between our two? 15 YEARS, 10 MONTHS, and 11 days! I don't recommend it, but I wouldn't trade it for anything! John & I have been married for 25 years -- I know, longer than some of you have been alive!

My son is two and a half and I don't want any more biological children. I was extremely messed up as a teenager, then I got pregnant at 18 and I had to change everything around for this baby. My life is going how I want it to now, I've got my school and my career and my little guy is older now and actually has his own interests and indepdendence... I just don't want to go back to the baby stage.

However... I plan to be a foster parent when my son is a little older. I want to grow up as an only child because that is what he is, and then when he's old enough for me to talk to him about why I want to become a foster parent (some kids don't have a loving home like he does) I will bring some younger kids into my home. I think I would only take kids 2 and up, because although babies are cute they're extremely boring and I really wasn't a fan of that stage.

My son is 5 and a half years old, and we don't want anymore. Since we've had our son and I have never once thought "another might be nice..." so I guess we're done. Everyone tells me I'll want another one someday, but after 5 years of not wanting one, I really don't think I'm just going to up and decide I want another.
Sometimes the comments people make about me being "selfish" for not giving him a sibling get to me, but I really think it is more "selfish" to bring a kid we don't really want into the world just to appease relatives...

Yivonne, I would love to have more children. My daughter is two and a half. I am starting to worry it might be too late. She is so used to being by herself. I have always wanted children my whole life and was blessed enough to have her at 30 years old. Now, I wont have another one until her dad and I get along better in our relationship. I do not want to bring another child into a home where a dad yells all the time. I don't think it is fair. A lot of my personal friends have had children about three years apart so one can be in pre school first. The siblings seem to be good for one another also.. Hope you get to have another when everyone in your family is ready.

Hubby and I had our DD after 10 years, so I am pretty sure she will be an only child, but I think two years is a nice amout of time in between.



Good luck :)
