Who else is dreaming of baby no 2?

And how big would the age gap be?
My DC is 6 so there would be a 7 year age gap.
Thinking of what it will be like with two instead of one and how that will change the dynamic smile
Anyone else?

DS is nearly 17 months and just started TTC2. To be honest I'm petrified of the prospect of TTC, being pregnant and having a baby!!! But I just can't imagine only having one!

Did you always want a big age gap?

I would like a small(ish) gap DS is 13m so would be roughly a 2 year gap if I conceive soon, but still BFing so no idea how long it will take!

We're waiting till December to TTC. The next 6 months are going to drag

I'm just starting to accept that I won't have number two. Years of TTC and a failed IVF have made me feel very negative about the whole thing.

I'm focusing on the fact that my DD is completely wonderful and everything I could ever want in a child. It's helping and I'm getting there, albeit very slowly.

No but dp wasn't ready and never particularly wanted anymore but I managed to show him how amazing it will be smile

DS is 8 months and we're ttc #2. Had an emergency caesarean with ds so I'm a bit worried about it but really want a small age gap.

Me! DD 11 months. Wanted a small age gap but also think we will also wait until end of year...
Is there a particular reason you are waiting arkkorox?
I'm thinking about changing jobs so need to wait to qualify for mat leave. Tough decision!

oliviaerinpope flowers you sound like a brilliant mum and your DD is very lucky.

annie im desperately trying to lose weight before I get pregnant again. Dd was a very very big suprised ( I found out I was pregnant at 36 weeks gone) and I want to do it all properly this time. I also like the fact that dd will be going to nursery for a couple of mornings when baby is tiny, so I will have half a chance to breathe!

I had PND badly with dd and it's only been the last 6 months I've really started enjoying her, I want a bit longer with just us before we have number two.

If all goes well with my current pregnancy, there will be a 5.5 year gap between dd and number 2. Id have liked a smaller gap but things didn't work out like that. On the positive side, dd is really easy now she is a bit older so I'm hoping I cope better with 2 because of that. Still very early pregnancy for me and after a mmc at 13 weeks I'm trying not to get my hopes up.

DS1 is 7 years and 8+ months and DS2 is 5 days old.
We personally chose and love the big gap grinfrom pregnancy to birth and how our house dynamics haven't changed. DS1 has been brilliant as a big brother.

Me !! Ds is 15month I came off the pill last month first proper period started yesterday. There are alot of things that could be better in our lives eg more money bigger house etc but none of those things are happening in the next year .We want two and to be honest once no.2 is done then I can look at my job etc .

Kellz92 Fri 27-May-16 23:12:56

Me. Dd is 3 so will be a 4 year gap, bigger than I wanted but Mother Nature isn't helping lol xx

Wanted 3 years+, have ended up with 2yrs 8 mths all going well! Bit scared, tbh.

opalescent Sat 28-May-16 12:36:38

I am! Ds is 3.5, I split up with his dad when he was a small baby. Trying for a second baby with dp of 2 years. Both want one so much, he is amazing with ds and has no children of his own.
4th cycle in and af is due today. Feeling very periody but crossing everything and hoping it's a no-show confused.
