Kids only a year apart?

Does anyone else have kids only a year (or around a year) apart?
I have a 6 and a half months old baby boy, and I just found out I'm pregnant again! I was on birth control and got pregnant regardless...
I'm kinda nervous because the pregnancies are so close together :/
I wanted to wait two years before having another baby, so this is definitely unplanned...I'm still excited though (it's kinda hard not to be), just a little scared.
My fiance is very happy and excited, lmao...

  • My boys are 13 months apart. I found out when my oldest was 4 months old. I was in shock, definitely not the plan, lol. I love that they are so close. They are the best of friends. They are now 3 1/2 and 4 1/2.

  • My son was 9 months when I got pregnant. It is difficult, days you just don't want to get out of bed, but have to, you don't feel like eating because everything makes you sick, but your little has to eat... It all seems too much, but it is so worth it. My best advice is, take it day by day, don't worry about the small things. My doctor told me this after I had my second; " don't worry if you haver dishes in the sink, laundry that needs folded, or you havent showered in a week. If you and your littles are happy, nothing else matters as much." :)
