  • Well, there is no guarantee you'd get pregnant this month lol...

    But I don't think I would try so early. I wanted to wait until my DD was 2 to try, but instead I got pregnant on accident and she was only 19 months. I would have preferred her to be closer to 3, not 2, when the baby was born!

    It's all about personal preference. :)

  • Remember, it can take 9 months on average to conceive. I tried to space my youngest 2 kids 2 years apart as I figured about 6 months to get pregnant. Except I got pregant on the first try & they are 17 months apart. Ah, well, wouldn't change it for anything!

  • My husband and I started trying for #2 when our daughter was only 5 months old.. I got pregnant the first try, but we miscarried. They would have been only 13 months apart! We tried again when we got the ok and got pregnant on the second try, but miscarried again. They would have been 19 months apart. Now, I am finally pregnant with #2! We got pregnant on the first try again and I am due in 4 weeks. My girls will be just a couple weeks shy of 2 years apart. I don't mean to say anything about the miscarriages to sound mean or freak you out.. the doctors said they were just unhealthy pregnancies and had nothing to do with conceiving so soon after our daughter. It doesn't hurt to start trying just in case you don't get pregnant on the first try! Best of luck to you and have fun trying!
