How did you decide it was time

How did you decide you were ready to add another baby to your family?

Right now we have one, a 16 month old. I keep getting baby fever, but i have very tough pregnancies. I don't know how to decide if now is a good time to ttc. I really want to, but i have fear. My dh says hes ready anytime. I would like our children to be close enough in age that they will still be able to relate & play together, but I wonder if shes still too young.

The two major things I'm worried about is:
1. I get extremely sick when pregnant. I worry if i will be able to care for dd properly, but this will be the case no matter when i have another.
2. Is it overwhelming having a 2 year old and newborn? I know there will always be hard days, but are they both at such needy ages that i will wish i had waited?
How did you decide? What do you think?
I cant seem to shake this desire but i have my reservations as well.
Help ease my mind!

When I got pregnant is when I decided to have another baby.

I just knew what I wanted and that I didn't want to wait. My SO and I are working on #1 now. :)
