  • I had my son in January 2007 and fell pregnant with my daughter in October the same year. I just had her on July 22nd. How do I feel about it? It's a personal choice. Some people like to have their kids close together and others further apart. If someone wants to go for it - do it.

  • Well, I was blessed with 28 months between my boys. My younger sister on the other hand had her's 12 1/2 months apart! They're 21 and 20 now, so it's a bit better. I think it is what it is. You can cry, Lord knows I did and mine were farther apart. But the fact is, the next one's on the way. You love them, plan for them, cry, scream, laugh and love. You carry on and you look to God for all strength.

  • I had my first daughter on june 20th, 2005 and had my 2nd on june 10th 2006. it's great that they're so close together, but it can be a handful!! as long as you're doin the deed, you'll get preggers!!

  • my mom did it! she gave natural birth though. i refuse to do it for the simple fact that i had a c-section and i'm still sore after 5 months!

  • I had my son in October 2007 and got pregnant again in April of this year. They will be 14 months apart. I am glad we are having our kids close toghether. It was planned. But I am ready to take a break from being pregnant for a while. We are undecided whether we are going to have a 3rd or not, but if so, I am taking a couple of years off. I am tired.
