How long does it take to have another baby after you have had one?

Well my fiance and I are wanting to have another baby and it seems like we can't. We don't want our daughter (21 mths old) to grow up alone or too far apart age wise with her sibling. So, we have been trying and nothing has happened. I thought I was, but my period came. I'm just wondering if there is like an ideal number of tries of trying to get pregnant again after having a baby.

  • It is different for everyone. With our first, we didn't even try. With our second we were trying since our son was 9 months old, but we had to wait for me to start ovulating again. It was when our son was 19 months old. GL.
