Concerned about my pregnancy. I just found out that I was pregnant again. (please dont judge) I have had 6 kids already. I wasn't ready for this one. I am worried that he/she will be born before it should be. My kids are 8,7,5,3,2,7months then this one will make 7.. I am worried that my body can't handle this.. Do you women think that my body could handle this? I am very lost and confused right now. Anyone out there have any input on this??

it would be especially important to ensure a healthy diet and take supplements through this pregnancy, the usual reason its recommended to wait a year is for your body to build up reserves of nutrients/calcium etc that are depleted when growing a bub

How far along are you? Do you want this baby? yes I think a womens body can handle it...for the most part. My husbands aunts have many children. His eldest aunt had 14 kids. Other aunts had 6, 8, 10. Many women have been having lots of children for thousands of years. It really comes down to whether or not you would choose to abort. It is recommended not to get prengnant for a year after a birth just so your body can heal, but I know many women that have gotten pregnant at 5 months post baby, including my own sister. I think your age might play a part also. Maybe think about getting a tubal ligation after this next child, or use BC.
