So my husband and I after much deliberation and advice from my lovely friends here on cafemom have decided to start ttc baby #2. I get my IUD removed this Friday!! Our DS is 10 months old. We are both 26 and finacially stable and we own our home. The doctor said I am in good health. We know it will be hard if we on concieve right away the babies will be 20 months apart at the youngest but we think in the long run it will be great. I am so excited but also scared to death at having 2 babies especially if they end up 20 months apart! Now how to deal with the flack we are getting from the ppl around us saying it is way too soon and that we can't love both or the children equally and will be cheating our ds out of affection?
My kids are 17.5 months apart. I love that they are so close. DD1 doesn't ever remember a time when DD2 wasn't there. They play very well together. Some people told DH and I that they were going to be "too close in age" and all of that other crap. But, you can love both babies and both of your children can get all of the attention that they want, need and deserve. I'm sure that having another child wasn't something that you and your DH decided on a whim. I think that you should trust y'alls decision and do what YOU want. Everyone else, they've had their chance to live their lives the way that they have wanted. It's your turn to live your life how you see fit. Best of luck to you!.
