  • You can get pregnant but this is also a totally normal period of time not to have had your first period. I would start using contraception though because it's not safe to get pregnant that soon after a C-section.

  • Yes you can. I got pregnant with my 3rd while nursing my 2nd (and on the mini pill). I found out I was pregnant before I ever got my period. They are 18 months apart.

  • Seriously, you can rupture your uterus... then you wouldn't be a mom at all. :-(

  • They are 18 months apart, so he would have been 9 months.

  • Missanc's baby would have been approximately nine months old when she conceived the next one, since the two are 18 months apart.

  • I'll ask my 5 year old if I can. He would know the most.

  • Are you just wanting them close in age or are you wanting Irish twins? I would talk to your doctor it could be dangerous for you and the baby if you get pregnant too soon. I know you want them close in age but think about what's more important.
