i have had such a great experience with my son so far that i just want to have like 3 more little clones of him! my husband thinks i'm crazy!! but we have agreed that we will not have another until we buy a house, which will be after i graduate spring 2011... i can't wait!! of course i know we will probably get payback for having such an angel the first time around that the second one will probably be a piece of work, but i welcome the challenge! i just don't want to wait too long because i want all our children to be 2-3 years apart from each other. i ultimately want 4 or 5... :)

we're going to try to fall pregnant when Toby is about 1 year so that he is about 2 when the new baby is born.
Before bub started teething i wanted to get pregnant before that...but now i'm feeling a little skittish.

I am all done with my 2 i have a 10yr old and my 7month ole we did try to have them closer in age but nothing ever happened until i fell pregnant with my little lady last year (was a very big shock sfter waiting so long ). I would not have chosen the age gap that i have but now i am glad of the age gap my 10 yr old girl is amazing with the baby and they both adore each other (for now anyway lol) .

We are going to try again in Aug. so they will be about 2 years apart. I am close with my sister in age and I love it. I know it will be hard but I think it could be easier in some ways than waiting longer.

Your not mad. I would desperately love to fall pregnant again asap. I'm so ready, but my husband does not want any more children. We have only one. I'm absolutely crushed to the core. (something I will never get over) If your both ready & willing go for it. Good Luck. :)

I also have a 3 year old (she'll be 4 at the end of the year) and of course a 7 month old and I am already thinking about no. 3 too! Though we will probably wait until next year to start trying as I think the age gap we have between our 2 works well.

we would like to have another two in fact :D but not very soon, i guess we will wait till he is 2 years old, well i need a break! my son is 7 months 11 days and i still barely have to sleep, he keeps up waking up through the night, teething and practising his milestones :) and my breastfeeding is taking effort as well, so i guess it is best to wait , i actually asked my doctor and he told me that it better if we wait at least 2 years , he said it is better for my body and for the sake of the baby, but this time i would love to have a kid during the spring or summer time :D

We would like another but we may be waiting until our daughter is over 2. Unfortunately day care costs are putting a big lean on when we have another child.

I am waiting to have another, I would like my son to have a sibling, but he's 71/2 months old, and I think I will wait a few years and then think about having another one.

I for sure want another one. My son is 7 mo & we've been trying but no luck. I think it's harder for the parents, but in the long run it's better for the babies. They want someone to grow up & be able to play with.

I am very broody, I seem to stay that way. But I want one out of diapers first!

I am so clucky, one of my close friends just had her 2nd and I was like yes my minds made up. I want them close together, but at the moment with the hell from teething and seperation anxiety I'm not sure if it is the right time. Oh well we'll see!

Jasmine - posted on 05/19/2009




No. Not at the moment. I'm still trying to get my head around the fact that I gave birth! I do want more children, but I'm not sure when I'll feel ready.

I have the twinge of jealousy when I see pregnant women in Babies 'R' Us, but then I remind myself how busy I am with my 23-month old and almost 7-month old. My husband and I are going to wait at least a year before we start trying to get prego again.

They say waiting at least 2 years to let your body/uterus fully recover even if you had a vaginal birth is the best thing to do, but my friend had a c-section and her kids are only 11 months apart!

My friends tell me I'm insane when I say I wouldn't mind being pregnant!

Yes we would like one more but are not going to start trying until my now 7 1/2 month old is about 2 1/2 years old!! I am not ready yet and just want to spend time with my little monkey, have him fully potty trained and in his big boy bed first!

You are not mental at all! Our son James is 7 months old, and the plan now is for us to start trying when he turns a year old.

Sometimes I want another, but then I don't think I could quite handle it yet. We have talked about it, and my husband and I want to get pregnant next summer.

Jennifer - posted on 05/18/2009




Yup we want to have another one after she turns a year old. But we might put that on hold till after he gets out of the Navy in 2011. Haven't really discussed when but we want another one.

we are but not for another year or so. My hubby would like to find a job that is full time so that we would have the money to have one.
