Or am I the only one crazy enough to try this? lol Or has anyone done it before? This is my first and DH & I really want our LO's to be close in age. Figured we'd start trying asap as it took 1 1/2 years to conceive and stay pregnant
My friends kids are 11 months apart, they play together all the time! They are a handful but all kids are. The up side is that you never really get out of a phase, and once it's done it's done. Whereas if ur kids are 4 years apart, you do everything allllll over again!! everyone tells me that once you have a baby it's easier to get pregnant.
Just an FYI on the timings you mentioned - I know a lot of people who had a long time ttc #1 but then ttc #2 really quickly. I don't want to get your hopes up in case that doesn't happen, however if you're not actually ready but starting because it'll take a year or more don't be surprised if its quicker.
Yes, we're doing this too. It took us over 2 years to conceive this LO, I had to go through an operation and a miscarriage in that time, so it just seems somehow wrong to prevent pregnancy now.
I had a chat with my consultant about it and he too agrees that we should go for it. He said if we leave it a couple of years I may have to go through the operation again which I want to prevent if possible.
Thats what we did after we had our first. I was pregnant again 4.5 months PP. My girls are 12 months 8 days apart. I love having my girls so close in age. They are both wonderful and Ava is great with her little sister. So no you are not alone and not crazy.
