  • My daughter was 20 months old the first full cycle we tried and we got pregnant that cycle. She'll be 29 or 30 months when the baby is born depending on when he decides to come! :)

  • I got pregnant when my daughter was 9 months old. She just turned 18 months old on June 1st and I'm 3 days past my due date with my son. We weren't trying or preventing...but, I would say it took us about 6 months to get pregnant the second time around. The first time though took the first try.

  • I wanted another baby when my son was 2 1/2 months old. Now I am almost 22 weeks pregnant, and my son is almost 8 years old! It wasn't for lack of wanting, it was lack of a great (or even decent) guy to have a baby with! I know how hard that baby fever can be, but honestly honey, my life is SOOO easy having an older child and being pregnant. I do not think I could handle this with a toddler. I know that waiting almost 8 years to get pregnant again isn't something everyone wants to do, heck, I didn't want to wait, but if it makes you feel any better, pregnancy and mood swings and everything that comes along with it is easier with an older child.

  • My DD was 18mo old when I found out I was pregnant with #2... This pregnancy wasn't planned, we used protection and I was on birth control... my DD will be either 21 or 22 months old, depending on when my second DD makes her debut!!!
