  • is it bad? depends.. It isn't healthy, that's for sure. Your body needs time to heal. Nor is it fair to your baby you just had either, they don't get very much one on one time with mom. it can also be very stressful having too so close together.

  • I wouldn't say it is "bad" but it may not be the best thing. It is not recommended that you get pregnant earlier than 18 months after having a baby. Your body needs that much time to get back to normal after giving birth. That being said though, if you are in a good relationship, financially stable and healthy, then you can make it work. You will be at higher risk for some things, but lots of women do it. A child is a blessing no matter what and no matter when or how it was conceived, God is the one who created that life and God never makes a mistake. Best wishes to you and both of your little one's.

  • It's not bad in the sense that ur babies will be close together but health wise it's not the best. I got preg with my second after having her 5mo later and for about 4 years now i have had bad constipation problems severe acid reflux and im constantly tired. But as long as you take care of yourself and rest with the new one while you can and go to dr regularly then you should be just fine.

  • Although it is not generally considered a good idea by drs, there are lots of us that have babies closer than 2 years apart. You might check out the closely spaced siblings group here on cafe mom to find others who understand what you are going through.
