I think i may be pregnant because i have felt sick for about 2weeks now and my period so far is 3days late which usually comes right on time,I will be getting a test done tomorrow.. Im feeling rather stressed about the situation as i have a beautiful baby boy that will be 1years old in 4days and i always dreamt of giving him a brother or sister but i feel this is way to close! i feel like its unfair on him if i already have another baby because i feel he needs all the attention right now coz he is still very young.I thought it would of been a great time to have a sibling for him when he is around 3-4 years old,i guess the reason im writing this is just to get these feelings off my chest! i just feel really guilty because if i find out im pregant tomorrow i know im not going to be very happy about it,dont get me wrong i love being a mummy and would love another baby just the timing feels wrong also i would like to add i know this is my fault in the first place but what happens,happens thanks to all :)

Congratulations on your pregnancy. My DD just turned one 2 weeks ago and I am due w/ baby #3 in October. DD and #3 will only be 17 months apart and I was terrified when I found out. I was not ready to be pregnant again and the small gap is still a little scary. I will say though, that I have a DS that was 2 years and 9 months old when my DD was born. I, too, thought this was the perfect age gap. While my DS does love his sister, it is very evident how jealous he is of her. Even now, after a full year of her being here. He has never been mean or harmful to her, but he will do anything to keep the attention on him and away from her. So, while the gap and alone time w/ my DS was great for me, it has proven to not be so great for him.
My DD will most likely not understand what is even happening to really put up a fuss of any kind about the new baby. It will just seem more like normal life to her and soo many people reassure me that she and baby will be very close. After watching my DS after my DD arrived, I am pretty confident that everyone is right about my future outcome. I feel that my DD and new baby will be pretty close because they will get to do more together. Now, how DS takes yet another baby, who knows, but he is asking for another sister so I guess that is a good thing. ;o) Good luck and don't let your age discourage you from anything. At the very least, you will most likely always be the young, hip, and hot Mom on the block!!! ;o)

I'm in the same boat, my son will be a year old on the 25th of this month, and my period is 5 days late. Not to mention my belly went from flat to a 16wk looking baby bump. I'm hoping im just bloated cause im going to get my period, but I can't help thinking I could be pregnant. I don't want another baby yet. I'm like you I want my kids a few years apart. Not to mention we are only renting a 2 bedroom house and barely making it. We don't have the room or the money for another baby right now. It is very stressful.

I think having kids close is great because they can do things together i have a brother close in age and a sister and their is a big age gap between us and her she missed out on going out to friends and that sort of thing and it really upset her. I think you'll be fine. As long as he feels loved he'll be fine. Try to get him involved and excited about the baby as well that should help. I am due to have another baby about a week before my sons 1st birthday. I'm sure you'll be fine.

Hello, iv just found out im pregnant, there is a little more of an age gap (my girl is 21months old now) and will be 2+5months when the baby is born and i was rather shocked, i wanted another but my husband wasnt so sure, i had my contraceptive implant out due to a fall at home and we have been careful ever since (obviously not careful enough) yet my husband was over the moon when i told him and even though i would of liked a little more age gap its happened and there isnt alot i can do about it!

There's a small chnce u r just stressed and thats why ur period is late??!! xx xx xx

My oldest two are 16 months apart and the second and third are 21 months apart. It'll be fine. My older two play together all the time. They are pretty close. We are potty training both of them at the same time. I try to give them both a little individual time when I can. We involved the kids with each pregnancy. It's worked out wonderfully. Your son will be fine if there is another one. It'll all work out just fine.

Jasmine, My 2 youngest ae only 17 monthes apart. Completely unplanned but it happened. Now they are 7 and 6 and they are very close. They won't even sleep in seperate beds, even though they have their own beds. I understand being worried that you are not going to give him the attention he needs but you can involve him in eveything. I always took my kids to the doctor appointments that I had my pants on. When I talked about the new baby I would say our baby is doing really good. Do you want feel our baby kick mommy. The babies were always "our baby" never mommy or daddy's baby. You can even get him a baby doll so he can pactice being a big brother. They love when they get to be involved. It will be difficult at first because you will be tired but I promise you will be able to balance both withou making him feel like he isn't impotant.
