There is no right or wrong time to have another one. It's more of what is best for ur family and wht u and ur partner both want

we have a 2 year old a 1 year old and about to start trying for our 3rd. My oldest was 3 weeks past being 12 months old when we found out we were preg with our 2nd. My daughter just turned 12 months on Sept 9th and we plan on starting to try next month. We pay our house payments by the year so even though we are a one income family we still can afford babies because we pay our years worth of house payment out of income taxes and not have a house payment all year. Andif for some reason we dont get enoughback from taxes, we have a budget worked out for if that happens so that we can pay month by month. It has happened before and it worked out great. Still could afford house and babies. You will never be financially ready, and you will never feel physically ready. I always dread pregnancy. But you will know. It will be all you can think about. And men most of the time always say to wait. You have to sit down and give him the pros and cons of it. I had to do it with mine everytime. His problem is he just dont want to talk about it so i have to sit him down and talk and make him listen. After we talk he always says the same thing, "Well maybe we can do it. It wont be that bad. I guess we can start trying soon. I dont see why not" lol. But good luck!!!!

talk to your fiance, find out why he wants to wait, and explain to him why you want another one right away. then maybe set a time frame where you guys start to try to conceive your second.

Well then it's a good age to consider trying for another if you want them close in age that is. I have 2 boys ages 2 and almost 4. I would have liked to a another this year to keep the closeness, but of course my husband wants to wait another year to consider it.

Hi there, in my opinion in most cases, there is really no right time. I say as long as you have the space for the child then go for it. A lot of people say wait until you are financially ready, but really, some will never be ready in that sense and realistically, you could be ready, but it could take a year between conceiving and giving birth to the child and a lot can happen within that time. I am actually going through the same thing right now. I would like one more child, but my husband wants to wait a year to decide and even then it is not a guarantee. Unfortunately, it is a joint decision.
