Posted by   + Show Post

 Im so paranoid to have kids too close together. Is it realy as hard as i think? My Hubby wants a big family, should I just chill out and go with it or is it worth putting up a fight, Lol?

Quoting PEEK05:

I also got my first period at 8 months PP.  My first cycle was over 40 days long, my second 36 days long, and my third was a normal 29 day cycle (that's my normal).  I got pregnant on that cycle lol.

LOL well my first two are 2 years and 2 months. It was super hard for the first three months until I adjusted to the transition.  I'm not going to lie about that.

This second and third are the ones who will be 1 year 9 months apart.  I'm a little nervous but I have my first two that play together really well so I'm hoping that helps a bit when it comes to the constant nursing in the beginning! Guess I'll see how it goes in 9 days. ;)

 Ohh, Congrats. Yeah it would be easier having two keeping each other company. My DD & DS are 6 YEARS appart, Lol. But even now sometimes I feel like I depend on DD too much to entertain DS like while im cooking and stuff...
