I found out today that I am pregnant- 2-3 weeks on a digital test. We only had our first at the end of May.There will be less than 13 months beween them, possibly less that 12 if I go early. We were not being careful, knew what could happen and hey presto, Dc2 on the way. I am torn between worry,happiness, exitment, nerves. How will we manage in our small 2 bed? The place is cramped enough with the 3 of us already!
Anyway I dont know why I am writing this, possibly as only DH (and baby) know and I really want to share!!

Congratulations grin

Well look, these things happen and it will be lovely to have them so close. Re the rooms - have baby in with you till 6 months then pop in with toddler sibling who won't even notice! My older two shared a room till this year - they are 13 and 10.
Go and get some folic acid tomorrow and then relax - a baby is a blessing. You are adding to your lovely family and there are some definate advantages to small gaps smile

Thanks, now for 8 months of picking names (again), love this part!! And yes Northernlurker, a baby is a blessing and this one will make our family complete- just a little sooner than anticipated smile

Congratulations smile
Just think you can have joint birthday parties if they are 12 months apart! Also, they'll ( hopefully) be interested in the same things so days out will be easy and your first baby will be too young for jealousy over the new baby.
Have a lovely pregnancy smile

Congratulations smile

It will be lovely & challenging grin

[By the way, there is another regular poster, CupOfTeaPlease - who is generally called CupOf or CupOfTea (she's going through a really really bad time right now, so you might want to consider changing your name as you've only used it tonight. Entirely up to you of course smile]

Some people do it on purpose, I went to uni with 2 girls 10 months apart, their mum wanted to get it all done as soon as possible.

My two are 15 months apart, and it was fantastic as they were always ready to be going to the same places/doing the same things together. Maybe helped as DS was the older one! Hard work though - I well remember the nappy conveyor belt grin

NeedAUserName - that's nice of you smile I don't know if she'd mind or not, but right now getting posters confused is probably something she could well do without smile

So - now we need to find you a great user name as I presume that you are now going to stick around <as we are all so lovely/witty/amusing/adictive> grin

You'll have to tell us a bit more about you or your interests or whatever so we can help you find something suitable. It must not have mum/mummy/mother in it nor any numbers or xxx's grin <sorry ajandjjmum>

I like names like CainInThePunt, ElleanorHandbasket, WorraLiberty, ElfenSafety...
