  • I know right I have a 2 and a half year old and I felt it was time we're due in June. I guess when you feel it's right for you and the first one.

  • Honestly, as soon as I found out I was pregnant it was a good time to have a baby! The only one I planned was the one where all kinds of disasters happened! I even broke my foot and lost my job! Just go for it.

  • If you think it is time, it is probably time. Although your partner needs to be on board as well. By my son's first birthday I was ready to have another child. My husband was not though. I waited patiently and a year later he was ready to make baby number two. My son was two years old when I got pregnant, so there are two years and nine months between my children. I think it's a great age gap for us.

  • As soon as you forget the labor and sleepless nights..2 years should do it.

  • I was VERY lucky! My dd was always such a good baby (and at 20 mos is still a very good girl!). I had a quick, smooth natural delivery and actually look forward to doing it again!
    So yeah, I'm 38 weeks and my kids will be 20-21 mos apart :-D

  • for me it's when i'm very healthy and financially set- so no real time frame that could be 6 months from now or 5 years. it all depends.
