  • That's totally up to you, if you can afford it! Personally, I'd give my body a break and some time to heal after all that.

  • well i have 2 boys a 2 year old and a 6 month old my husband is going to boot camp next week and he wants another one. honestly if you want to be pregnant again then i say go for it. my husband wants 5. ill give them to him cause once he gets out of boot camp he will be making 100,000 a year. so if you have the money then go for it. just a tip make sure your oldest is potty trained it will make things easier on you

  • I'd give my body a break, personally. And, not to say you wouldn't be happy either way, but maybe wait until the idea of a baby in general is more exciting, not just a boy. :)

  • Aside from being crazy, I don't think its too soon if you guys feel ready. Personally, it takes me a few years to forget how much I hate being pregnant and start catching "baby fever"

  • As long as your family consists of "boyfriend" rather than "husband" I would keep waiting for that next child.

  • It is yours and your bf choice. I agree with the above as long as he is bf and not husband I wouldnt consider it at all. Also even if he was your husband you need to make sure you can really afford another baby. I feel like everyone should be finncial stable meaning own(not rent) house, own car, and have money in the bank before you even have any kids. But might be a dream world but you should at least have a good stable job, a car paid for, and a house you are buying. This is just my opinion.

  • I have a BF and not a husband... to me it make no difference. the only thing different between him being my BF and being my husband is a marriage licence. a piece of paper means squat to me.
    That being said... You must talk to your SO. ask him his reasons on wanting another baby... have him ask you you're thoughts on this. My children are 5 years apart. I didn't plan them that way at all.. that's just how they came. My so and i are talking about having a 3rd baby in the near future... if i was to get pregnant this month then that would mean our 2nd and 3rd children would be 3.5 years apart.. it makes no difference when they come... just that they do and that we both want them. do i make sense?
