  • Why wouldn't you be able to take care of both children? Do you have a physical disability that would hinder in doing this?

  • Plenty of people do it all the time.

  • Women have been doing it for hundreds of years!

  • Yep. I did it. Two youngest are 16 months apart, and I had an older child too it's very doable

  • Not ideal but yes why not?

  • Your oldest will be 16 months old when the baby comes. Women do that all the time.

  • Yes. But not in large quantities. (Cooking and cleaning)

  • For thousands of years.... *sigh*
    Maybe you should have thought about this before you spread your legs with no protection????

  • Women have been doing it since... well, since forever.

    Also, just a little fyi... breastfeeding is not a good form of borth control. Most people I know who have Irish twins seemed to be under the impression that it is....

  • Geez all of you are so mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No hun, you will definitely have to hire a mothers helper because all of that would exhaust you to no end. She will need to at the least, take care of the children full time while you cook clean etc or if you want to raise your children, you could have her clean and cook etc while your main focus is the children.


    just kidding, of course you are able to do everything that is just silly to even think that being pregnant or having multiple children is some sort of disability!!!
