Did anyone else get pregnant again 5 months after giving birth??

My husband and I had 1 time of unprotected sex right after my period and now I believe were are expecting baby # 3. I was just wondering if anyone has been in the same boat??

  • My younger 2 are 17 months apart, so not 5 months exactly, but close. It hasn't been a problem for us at all, they love each other and my pregnancy went very well.

  • My baby is going to be born when my youngest is almost 15 months old. So not quite 5 months but very close. My ex's sister had kids that are 1 year and 1 month apart.

  • My grandmother had baby #1 and baby #2 exactly one year apart to the day---they share a birthday! How cool is that?!?

  • Im now pregnant with baby number two due august 10th. and we have a nine month old which turns 1 on july 13th. So they will be a year and a month apart or so. They both were planned even. My hubby always said he wanted our kids to be close in age, I guess he really wasnt kidding. lol
