  • I think whatever you are comfortable. We are planning our #2 around deployments. But we are waiting 2 years. but if you get pregnant when your first is a year, then they will be almost 2 when your 2nd baby is born. I think if you can handle, go ahead. But if you are questioning, wait, it wont hurt to wait.

  • the only reason i asked was i just didnt want to feel like i was depriving my first of attention or am going to by having another one. thats my biggest fear lol

  • Do what your heart tells you! I have 2 boys 15 months apart and now my youngest is 5 months old and we are TTC #3. Do what is right for your family!

  • Thats somthing that you and hubby need to talk about, no one can really tell you what you want. My kids will be almost 3 and a half yrs apart but we started trying for a sec when my son was 2 cause I didnt want to try too soon and take that special time away from my son. Thats me though so talk about it and figure out what is best for yall. GL

  • Talk talk talk about it! DH and i have a 15 month old DD and were expecting in Oct. DD will be just over 20 months old. After we got our BFP we were thinking maybe its too soon but we truly dont think it is. Do whats best for you!
