Hi everyone I will start by introducing myself my name is shar in 24 live with my partner and my 12 week old babygirl.It took me 3 years to conceive my little girl.since having her I decided to go on the pill as I had previously used depo injection 4-5 years ago and believe that's what messed me up so will only take the pill now.. So me and my partner had intercourse once since last month as I wanted to be careful and get the pill into my system..this month I was late for my period 10 days later and still no sign of my period so I was starting to worry. I took a test and could not believe it I'm pregnant again! So much shock can't believe it really. At first I just cried I didn't no how to feel or what to do..wasn't planned obviously.we have now accepted it and looking forward to my daughter having a little sister or brother but just hate the fact that I no people are going to judge family are so supportive and are happy for us as at one time we never thought we could have children but here we are now expecting our 2nd child.

Don't worry about what others think. What a brilliant age gap!

I know a couple of people this has happened to and altough it was hard at the beginning, their siblings are only a year apart and so are best friends as they play with the same age toys and games etc.

Tell others to mind their own business smile
My best friend had 5 under four years old (single, twins, twins) and says she didn't give a monkeys what others thought - although the FP clinic shuddered every time she turned up!

That's what I'm looking forward to them being so close. My daughter will be 11 months when baby number 2 is born. Hard work I no but I'm up for the challenge smile xxx

Congratulations on DC 2. What a fab age gap. If I could have this one then another so soon then I would deffo do it (but not sure how long I would need to go back after mat leave)
My OH has a similar age gap to his older brother and he loved growing up with the age gap.

TinkerbellShar Mon 19-Oct-15 20:07:02

I think I was just so shocked and really wasn't expecting it but it's just sunk in but obviously just worried about remarks people would make when it goes public if you know what I mean. Some people can be spiteful even though I got broad shoulders sometimes people can't help them selfs xx

TinkerbellShar Mon 19-Oct-15 20:07:19

Thank you everyone for your kind words xx

I have a massive 16 month gap between my boys and it's so lovely. They play together, like the same things, have the most amazing bond. It was tough, be prepared, it is tough but wonderful. Congrats

You'll be fine. I have a 13 month gap between my 1 and 2 year old. I've found it do doable that I'm currently 36 weeks pregnant with DC3 - and I don't think I'm a particularly good parent grin

What I've found is that most people who say how terribly hard it will be have absolutely no experience if that type of gap and are basically talking out of their arse. Get a good double pram and get them napping at the same times.

I feel the same about being judged. Were planning to start trying for baby number 1 this summer which means I'd be 22 when I gave birth if all goes to plans and I'm worried people will think we're too young!! Now after joining MN I've realised I'm not that young and people's unwanted opinions shouldn't even be considered x

TinkerbellShar Mon 19-Oct-15 20:14:58

To be honest I'm just lucky to even be able to have my children as last year I never even thought I could conceive after trying for so long.i can't bite my tongue when people judge so end up kicking off lol xx

Wondererer Mon 19-Oct-15 20:18:12

If someone said anything I think I'd turn round and say well good job you're not going to be carrying a babu round for 9 months and that it hasn't to come out of your moo! Now wind your nosy necks in grin

TinkerbellShar Mon 19-Oct-15 20:19:13

Love that wonderer!! wink
