currently I have 2 children (10 yo girl and 11 month old boy) and me and my husband were looking to have another. Is it too soon? If so, how long should we wait?

Its is best to wait at least 12 to 18 months between gestations. Closely Spaced gestations is actually a pregnancy high risk factor. The reason is because your body is depleted of vitamins and minerals your baby needs to grow from the last prenancy. It takes about 18 months for the body to replenish. My advise would be give your body a break and wait the 18 months. Hope I helped :)

I think whenever is a good time for you is perfect. I have three. They are 7, 5 and 15 months. My first two are actually 13 months apart. Your 10yo should be a lot of help too. It's really all about what feels appropriate for your family.
