  • I found out when my oldest was 4 months old that I was pregnant. My boys are 13 months apart. It was hard at times since they were both still little at the same time but you just take one day at a time. After the first couple of months and we got in a routine things were a lot smoother. My pregnancy was harder, more pains, since my body didn't have time to recover. My boys are now 3 and 4 and are the best of friends. I would do it all over again. It is so neat just to sit and listen to them play and make each other laugh. Good luck to you!

  • i had my son and was pregnant about one and a half 2 months later i guess my kids are easy bc it really wasnt as hard as everyone said it was but the worst thing is not having 4 hands to do 5 things at once the best part is they always have a best friend and playmate their age

  • This is why condoms are good things...they prevent pregnancy.

  • My oldest was 6 months when I got pregnant again. And #2 was just 4 months when I got pregnant the 3rd time. That was 3 kids in just over 2 years. It was hard but doable. You figure things out and learn a lot of tricks. I think it's completely different than the way people now a days raise a single child at those ages. You can't spend every waking moment doting on just one kid so they become rather independent and self-reliant at an early age which I think it good. It is stressful the first couple of years, especially if you don't have help or emotional support from your spouse (it was just us, we had little help from family when our kids were small). They are 10, 9 and 8 now and I can't imagine doing it any other way. They are very close and have most of the same friends so they all hang out together. It was definitely worth the stress of the baby/toddler years.

  • Mine are 15 months apart. I wasn't sure I even wanted a second child so it was difficult at first. Now they are 8 and 9 and I couldn't imagine it being any other way. They are so close... I am very glad it worked out this way.

  • ME ME! I have two boys 13 months apart. It was HARD because my first had acid reflux and screamed 19 hrs a day for the first 9 months of life. But, it does get better. They are now 4 and 5. They are close, heading for school and best friends. It will be ok.
