  • I would wait longer if I was you. I don't mean to be harsh I promise but it sounds like you got enough on your plate right now. I have been there (all except the school part) with 2 children. It is hard. I suggest get your own place and finish school.

  • Going from one to two is huge!!! I wouldn't want to do that by myself.

  • You should probably get yourself on your own two feet first.

  • I wouldn't base my life decisions on a 7 month old liking other children. At that age they like everything. I'd finish school, get my own home then consider increasing the size of my family.

  • Be good to yourself. Finish school and get yourself settled before thinking about another child. You deserve it!

  • One to two is so HARD! I would wait a while, at least til you're out of school. You won't be sleeping much, and you're going to feel like you're run ragged.
