  • They usually say wait until after a year of having a baby, plus its best for your body.

  • If its what you want, then no, its not too soon.
    I was pregnant with this pregnancy when my 2nd child was 11 months old.
    Good Luck :)

  • I know someone whose kids are exactly 10 months apart in age! It's not too soon, if that's what you want.

  • It would be for me!!!

    It is said to be recommended to wait one year but if your first pregnancy was uncomplicated and not a c-sec then your doctor may give you the okay to start trying, with the expectation that it may take a few months to actually conceive.

  • I've been told it takes two years to heal from pregnancy and childbirth. Your best bet might be to talk to your doctor to be sure.

  • lol I sure's hell wouldn't with an 8 month old, but that's just me. Go for it if you want! Some women have more balls than I do I guess.

  • It all depends on how much you feel you can handle. They say our bodies don't fully heal until after a year pp, but I've heard of people getting pregnant when they were 6 weeks pp and they have healthy, beautiful babies. They have their hands full, but they're happy lol.

  • your life do what you want. I think its recommended to wait a year so your body has adequate time to heal.

  • I have also heard a year.

    Frequently moms who have two babies under 2 are very tired and wrung out. But lots of moms have children that close together and make it. :)

  • my first tow are 18 months apart. that is a very good point of the first poster, about it being better for your body to wait a bit longer.
