It's best to wait 18 months at least so next spring would not be too soon:-)

My not trying, not preventing babies were born 8/16/07, 16 months later 1/2/09, just under 3 years 9/8/11, and #4 will be born in early 1/2014.

We usually wait till 14-16 months. Most of my kids are 2 or under years apart but we have 2 that are almost 3 1/2 years apart.

 We just agreed when our oldest was about 9 or 10 mo that it might be time to try again. It took us 6 mo to get pregnant with our second so they are not quite 2 1/2 yrs apart. When our second was about 9mo old we decided to start trying cause it took a little time the last time - I got pregnant the first time - they are 18 1/2mo apart ;-)

Isabelle turned 3 in October after her sister was born in July.  

My husband and I have had many conversations about how many kids we wanted, and how far apart we probably wanted them, so there wasn't really anything I needed to "bring up" to my husband.  One or the other of us just said maybe it was time to try again, and we did.

My parents waited six weeks after I was born. My brother was born eleven months after me. There's no right or wrong, it's right when it feels right.
