  • Yep. I was the same way...and I did have another, my youngest and middle child are 17 months apart. My dd is now 14 months and we have basically just started trying for another one. That will make it 4 for us, so we might just be a little crazy, but I think getting baby fever around that time is normal.

  • I've gotten pregnant around my baby's first birthday three times. I'm feeling weird having a baby who is 16 months and not being pregnant now, actually - but I might actually be nuts. ;-)

  • lol I was 5 months pregnant when my first baby turned one! Even funnier was we planned it and it took a month to get pregnant!

  • What did you and your husband decide before you got married about when and how many to have?

  • As soon as they're not babies anymore we want the baby days back! No matter how hard it is. I have read that between 18 and 36 months is the best spacing for siblings as far as the health of the mother and the health of the child are concerned.

  • Yes, they grow up so fast, you miss the newborn stage! I was the same way for a while too.
