Want to have another child

My girl is almost seven month and I would like to have another baby. But people say I must wait. Is it a right time to fall pregnant again so soon?

Totally YOUR call! - I used to work in a OB/Gyn. office and I saw many who got pregnant early and others who waited 5 years. The medical aspect of getting pregnant again so soon is that your body really hasn't 'fully' recovered. They say '18 months' is good to wait or you are taking a chance of premature birth or smaller babies. Look at all the Irish twins, and I personally have a 22m10d difference in my children so I don't advocate waiting. He was a surprise pregnancy when she was 14 months old. I think it's great time now because she is pretty self sufficent, not potty trained yet but... I can't complain. The first week was really hard because her mommy isn't putting her 1st anymore... Good Luck with whatever you choose!
