I just would like to encourage you to keep the dear baby! My 2 are 18 months apart, and yes it is a bit stressful at first, but so so worth it! May God give you strength through this stressful time!

look at it this way youll have two kids, only one more than one. whatever you did with one you do with two. really its not so bad i have a 1yr and 3yr worked full time and went to school it wasn't the easiest but it can be done. when you have kids close in age you get everthing out the way at once, just keep dong what youv been doing maybe make a few changes and one day it will all pay off.good luck

Hey! don't panic, you'll be amazed at what us ladies can manage to juggle!! :)
my two are 9 months and 3 weeks apart (my 2nd was 11 weeks early) and although we had planned to have them close the fact that he arrived 2 and a half months early was a surprise!! I'm expecting our third now ( I will have 3 under 3's!) this time a little girl though. I start college this september onb a part time course for 2 years and then planning on university after that to study nursing. I am excited but it's hard balancing everything. you do manage though and you find you're own way's of coping with it. It's amazing how you can adjust to suit you and your children. Don't panic though. I'm sure you'll work it all out. I hope you're ok and this is encouraging to hear :)

It's hard to do but it makes you stronger. I had my first son at 19 and my second at 21 and I was a full time undergrad student throughout both pregnancies. I got pregnant with my daughter when I was 25 and in my last year of graduate school, and being pregnant with 4 and 6 year old boys AND trying to finish my work so I could graduate was incredibly challenging but it's over before you know it!! Good luck! (btw, my boys are best friends and seeing them grow up so close to one another makes it worth it!)

Think positively! I am planning to have my kids close together so I will help you find the silver lining! Your little ones will be the best of friends, they will be each other's playmates and will be able to entertain themselves with tea parties, dress up and make believe games! By the sounds of your timeline it looks like you will be able to finish both your internship and your degree before this little one comes! What a blessing! The second your baby is born you will forget about any of the stress that preceded his/her birth! Good luck sweetie!

You'll get through it. Accept help from family and friends. Think about how much you love your daughter and how amazing it will be to feel that for another child. Children are wonderful miracles even if it's a little sooner than planned.

All I can say is PRAY about it!! I found out I was pregnant when my son was 11 months old. I prayed about it and I decied to have an abortion. I told myself I would never do that because it's just not right, but then on the other hand I did not want to bring a child in this world that I knew I could not take care of. I didn't want to resent the child. I do not regret my decision and I'm nogt telling you to do that. I'm just saying way out all option. You will know what is right for you.

You can do it. I found out I was preggo with my 2nd a day after my sons first b - day. You can do it..you just learn to balance yourself differently. It is hard for the first year, with both children in diapers but you do get over the hump. My boys are now 7 1/2 and 9 and they are each others best friends :)
