  • How soon did I WANT one? Immediately LOL
    But on a serious note, my SO and I had already decided to wait at least 4 years before we try again.

  • It was a while. My oldest are three years apart. But with #3 we wanted another pretty soon. This baby will only be 18 months younger!

  • Pretty much immediately. I loved being pregnant and missed that feeling as soon as it was gone. I got actual baby fever, where I wanted another baby, pretty badly starting about 6 or 7 months.

  • I had my son in May. It was a rough labor and delivery and I swore I never wanted to have another child. But now I feel like maybe I do, I want to be able to actually not be so drugged up the next time and remember what happened.

  • Like right away. I got pregnant four months after I had my first. I wanted them to be close in age.

  • We wanted our children to be at the most 2 years apart. They are 23 months apart, I love it. I know it gets really hard when they are little but they grow together. Would I do it again? May be not, we are done having children.
