I am 21 and 5 months pregnant with baby number one, my boyfriend and I have been together 7 years and love each other very much, we both want 2-3 kids and want them as close in age as possible. I was an only child who always longed for siblings and he had a sister who he was very close to but she passed away before he and I met. Having our children close together means a lot to us and I was wondering how soon is too soon? I know you are "supposed" to wait a year after giving birth before trying again but if we don't get pregnant right away the babies could end up more than two years apart and I really want them to be closer than that. What do you think moms how soon after your first did you start trying again? How long as first time parents do you think we should wait to start trying again?
