pregnant? i want my kids to be close in age but not looking forward to the sleepless nights again. so i'm not sure i want to get pregnant right away. i guess i would have at least 9 months of sleep until those days come again.

  • My period came back when I was 3 months pp. My OB said good chance I could get preg at that point. We weren't trying (but I wasn't on bc or using condoms) since then and I'm still not. We have been actively trying for 5 months.. and still not! I'm still nursing my 2 year old btw.

  • With my first I nursed for three months. I got my period right away and got pregnant. My boys are 13 months apart. (and I love it) With #2, I only nursed him for a month. My period came back as soon as a quit again and we didn't get pregnant until he was 11 months old. I was watching the calendar so I knew when I could get pregnant and such, we wanted them a little farther apart that time for a little bit more of a break. I have been done nursing #3 for almost 3 months now, nursed her for 10 months and I am not pregnant yet, not that we are trying, lol but my period has returned and been really wacky this time. Anyway, good luck to you. I think it is great having kids close together. #2 and #3 are 20 months apart. All three of them have a blast playing together. Right now they are 1, 2 and 3 years old.
