How long did you wait before trying for a second child? We had originally decided that we didn't want to have our second until our first was 2 yrs old. But lately, we've both been kinda feeling like maybe we're ready for our second. Our first is 9 months old. It didn't take much to get pregnant the first time, so I know it won't take long the second time around. (I have very fertile genes.) I do know that she would be around 1.5 yrs old when our second would be born, so it's not like it's far off from the 2 yrs that we had talked about.
