If it is planned nope. We like them 3 years apart and so far that is what we have had. But if it happens we will work with it. Things will work out. But I could not plan it that way.

I have twins but I would rather have another set of twins then have 2 close in age! Lol I am 35weeks pregnant but my twins are 5 and a half so it is great! If we decide to have another after this since this is SO first baby we will wait min of 3 years!

You need to give to give your body time to heal and give yourself time with the baby to bond. If you're pregnant so soon and have to worry about morning sickness and feeling tired and going to doc appointments. How are you going to be able to really care for your baby and devote time to the baby? When I was pregnant I couldn't imagine taking care of an infant.

Not all women get sick nor feel bad pregnant

I felt AMAZING with ds I could have easily cared for a baby the entire time

lol DD was just shy of 6 months when I purposely fell pregnant with DS. Call me crazy but SO and I did it for the exact same reason, we want our kids close in age. :)

This is a common misconception. I'm 18w, 3d and although occassionally tired I have no problem caring for DD (9 months), teething and all.
