  • My son was about to turn 1 and I got pregnant with my daughter about 4 months later...My daughter is 14 months and I am just starting to want another baby BUT I don't want to be Pregnant and I want to lose baby weight first from my daughter...and I'm a little scared cause my daughter was a preemie and that was very hard for me to leave her and I don't want it to happen again...so hopefully it doesn't hit me too hard =)

  • My son was about 18 months when I decided I didn't want him to be an only child. The baby fever kicked in full force and has never left. He is almost 4 now and still an only child =(

  • About 2 1/2 years later, I started getting comfortable with the idea of having another. At 3 years, I really started to want another. At 3 1/2, I really really wanted another. Now I'm still at 3 1/2 years and I'm like "Hey, if it happens, great, if it doesn't it's ok too."
