Ive only got jessica who is 6 months old... have read the other thread today - makes interesting reading.... just not sure if i would miss out too much on all of jessica's "firsts" by being preoccupied with pregnancy and another newborn.
I conccived No2 when dd1 was only 6 months old. I love having them this close together, they play really well (although they fight too). It was really hard work at first, but pays dividends in the long run.
I recommend getting help in if you can afford it though!
I conceived no 2 when no 1 was 8 mths old. Always been very happy with age gap. It is hard at 1st tho. I don't really like all thisstuff about missing out on having time alone with 1st born/missing the 1sts etc, cos when you have 2/3/4 you never have time alone with these subsequent kids, yet they're no less important. iyswim
If yuo're broody then why not? If you're a worrier, you'll worry no matter when you do it. Might as well get it over & done with. Of course you might not conceive for a while anyway
Monkey - I also conceived my no 2 (dd) when ds was 8 months old and have never regretted the age gap. Jessicasmummy - you need to figure it all out in your own mind as to what you want. But I think having your kids close together is lovely. Its hard work for the first year but fun. I am now expecting no 3 with a 19 month gap between dd and no 3 so will have 3 under 3 yrs 1 month!
