Is anyone else trying or thinking of trying for another baby? My daughter will be 1yr on nov 15 and im thinking of starting to try to #2 in december.. It would be nice to have another fall baby but im wondering if its to soon, like if 2 little ones that close in age will be to hard? I mean I want my kids close in age but just not sure how my 1st baby will be with the second.


me and my hubby have decide to start trying for baby number 2 right after my daughters 1st bday

My husband and I won't be trying again until next fall. I'm really looking forward to adding to the family but we wanted a bit of a gap between the kids.
Congrats to those who are trying and those who are pregnant!

well after a "scare", we actually thought about it, and we want to try for #2 :)

We are hoping to start trying for Baby#2 next summer so there will hopefully be 2 1/2 to 3 yrs difference between my daughter Sophie (Nov 30) and the new baby. Hopefully this will mean that she is out of diapers when the baby comes and we only have one pooper in pants in the home at a time. Best of luck to those trying to concieve and to those already pregnant.

I'm ready, but DD breastfeeds so much still I'm not cycling. I hear it usually slows more after 1 yr, so we are hoping by spring it will be possible!

Karen- Thanks! No I am not breastfeeding anymore. We started trying 3 months ago the first 2 months were if it happens it happens the 3rd month we actively tried and it worked.

My daugher Zoe will be 1 on 2nd Nov, and we've just started trying again. I'm not sure how quick it will happen cuz i'm still breastfeedind and haven't got my period back yet, so i'm not getting my hopes up.

Maddison congratulations - are you still breastfeeding? did it take long to fall?

I wanted number to my daughter will be 1 on Nov. 14th. I would love another one but I'm still in college and it will be hard on my internship to juggle to. I believe it would be harder because each of them will have different feeding and napping schedules that you would have to keep up with. and when your daughter is almost 2 running around getting into trouble while your trying attend your newborn it will get stressful. But I also think it would be a wonderful experience seeing them growing up and playing together. I didn't have that til I was 8.
I just missed my period this week but i missed it 2months ago and didnt get my period til the next months. one test came out positive and the other 7 came out negative. this month I'm not going to take a test til I miss it the second month. Im gonna let nature do what it wants

Hi, Our son is 1 on 20th November and we are hopefully going to have a two year gap so we plan to start trying in December.

My son is 1 in november 25th. i aint guna try again for another baby til my son is nearly 4 as i dont think i could cope wiv a toddler, being pregnant and then a newborn... too stressful. i wanna wait til my son can talk in conversation, help me maybe to things round the house and then i could decide whether another baby would be nice but yea i definatley want another one in the future

My son will be 1 on November 17th. But my husband and I aren't trying.... I want to wait until Bryce is 3.5 years, because I'm hoping to go back and finish college, the way we will be more financially secure. My friend's kids are 19 months apart and that's what she was trying for. She's says it is hard at times (obviously) but she loves it.

we have started trying for our #3. We have a son who will be 4 in three weeks & a daughter who will be 1 on Nov 13th. We tried for a 2yr gap between those 2 but ended up with 3yrs. It was ok because Beau can do everything for himself like eating & going to the toilet but we still have liked a 2yr gap. I was nervous about having 2 but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be so I am sure I will be fine with 3 even if there is only around 18months difference between the 2 youngest.

We are also trying for another. We plan on starting in November after our trip. I know it will be hard now, but later when they are older they'll be closer and able to relate to each other easier.

I had a hard time with my sister who is almost 5 years older then me. We didn't get along until just recently.
