right, well i dont know then, you say you have family and friends close, would they be happy to look after your son if you needed to go into hospital or be avalible? most kids go thru the stage of being little horrors, you just need to have a good rutine and make sure you give them both attention, it is hard but then you have to think, if you dont have more now, in a few years will you want one when you cant have anymore, its so unfair, that you need to make the decision. but by the sounds of it your baby is a good sleeper, which means you would have your rest at night, which is a huge part of it really, i mean honestly its you and your partners choice, i can only tell you what i think, all kids are different so yours could be two little angel or they could be little nightmares, unfortuanitly you wont know untill its too late :( wish i could help xx

its that i'm worry about as i was in and out of hospital and my partner works night so he is only around on his days off which isn't many. i've been really lucky with my son as he is a really happy baby never really crys, sleep all night from 7.30 to 7.30. i'm lucky that me and my partner have a great family that live close to us and never mind helping out with him. the big thing i'm worried about is how it will be on my little boy having another baby soon as i have friend who have kids close together and they have become a nightmare.

lol tina, did you ever think when you were pregnant with your first this is going to be so chellenging, and yet you cope!! it would be easier having a bigger gap too but its so great seeing them together, there are pros and cons to what ever you do, but when you feel ready go for it! you'll know what is the right descision for you even though me and tina have different opinions it works for us :) xx



p.s... if you were really ill during your pregnancy you will need to think about that too, will you be able to cope with a young baby while pregnant if you are ill with this pregnancy, and if you cant will someone be able to help you? xx

no i think as long as YOU can handle it why not.. not me though, i waited 'till my son was 4. So when i had my daughter he was almost 5, that way he could help out a little if he wanted to..

well it really depends on you, could you cope with two children under two if you got pregnant quickly, or possibly more if you were to have twins or something, i got pregnant when my eldest was 11 months and i love having them so close together but they do have their days when they fight etc, actually that happens ever day hehe, when ever you are ready is fine, your body doesnt recover for at least a year after having a baby though xx p.s im tryibng for my 3rd my daughter will be two soon, it cant be that bad if im wanting another!! lol xxx
