  • i've always heard you're very fertile after a pregnancy, so i don't think it will be too long before you conceive again, if you dont have fertility issues. but what about your body healing? i dont think it is recommended to get pregnant so fast after a birth. you're body just went through a 9 month transformation, followed by labor, which isnt easy on the body. plus, your vitamin and mineral stores are pobably depleted by your milk, or if not, by supplying a fetus for 9 months. you need to take prenatals immediately, if you're determined to have another.

  • You are NOT very fertile after pregnancy, and if you do concieve right now you are at a much higher risk for miscarriage, stillbirth, placental problems and hemmorhage.

    Please give your body a little longer to heal. Your baby wll have a much better chance at being born healthy if you give yourself 6 monts (the WHO actually recommends 18). They will still be very close, you don't need this right now.

    Not bashing, just trying to help you make a wise decision.

  • I have to agree with the PP.
    I also feel I should add your daughter deserves to have you to herself for a little while. Pregnancy can be exhausting the second time, especially with an infant. I say wait at least 6 months, longer would be better, but at least 6 months.

  • What's the rush? Slow down and enjoy your 7 week old. If you wait at least 6 months, you will be healthier, you'll have more time to bond with your first, and the babies will still be only a year and a half apart. I think your bond with the first child should be given time to strengthen before another child is trust into the equation. Just somthing to think about.

  • If your breastfeeding you usually wont ovulate for 6 months or so.
