  • A few suggestions: rest whenever possible, even if you don't feel like it. One thing that has helped me is doing pre-natal pilates or yoga every morning to build up some strength and flexibility so that you're body will be prepared to pick up and carry a bigger baby while you're carrying another baby in your uterus. I only started doing this because my body was aching and hurting so much by the end of the day, and I can't tell you how big of a difference I feel. Good luck! Feel free to PM me anytime if you need some encouragement or advice.

  • My middle ones are less than 13 mos apart. Both were Csections, too.

    I survived --- you will, too! :-)

  • well i have a 2yr old and a 4month old and yes at times its hard, and very frustrating. u just have to have patients and take it one step at a time. the good thing is when their that close in age they will be super close, the best of friends so it wont matter. its all worth it!!!

  • My youngest two are 11 months apart. My youngest was my toughest pregnancy....more problems, early labor and on restriction so I couldn't even pick the baby I had up by myself!

    I have 3 in 33 months. I do NOT recommend doing it that way on purpose.

  • I got pregnant when my dd was 4 months. It's not easy, but it's manageable. It'll get easier someday. I'm due in November.

  • In a few weeks I will have 3 in 33 months. My first two are 13 months apart. It was hard at times but I would say by the time the baby was 4 months things really calmed down and there seemed to be a routine. Whenever they happened to be asleep at the same time, I also slept. That may be harder for you depending if your oldest is napping. I would have your oldest have a rest time at least at the same time so there is some down time.
