  • Hun, you need to focus on yoru sick baby first. I am sorry to sound harsh but your son's heart problems should be a little more resolved before you have another child. You will have many appointments, stress, etc. Let him enjoy some mommy and daddy time as well beforehand

  • Many women get broody soon after giving birth - it's normal. But, in reality - it's not a good idea, you have a 4 month old rght now - I can't even begin to describe how much your little one wll change n the next few months - and he'll need your all.

    Natural child spacing happens for a reason, and it's generally a two year gap.

  • I hate to say it but I also think you should wait let him have a chance to be the baby first before having another one.

  • i was the same way! i was convinced i could handle it when my dd was the same age BUT now shes 8mos and is a woman on the move and im glad he told me not yet! we would like to have our children close together so maybe when shes a year maybe a year and a half. i seriously still have baby fever though i miss being pregnant but i know i need to wait or else ill lose my mind. i just think if i do it too close together my kennadi will get jealous and i wont be able to give her the time she deserves.

  • its also good to wait becuase you need to give your body time to recover, but i agree with everyone above. its one thing to have them close together, but i wouldn't reccommend to plan on another that soon.

    i want another baby, just not right this instant. there is too much already changing and going on in my life.
