BTW, not sure if it was because of anything different done to me? I had a normal emcs so thought it was normal to be told it was ok to try to get pregnant again (although I was hesitant because of the pain I was in, lol!) I have been ttc for months and I was actually told by my doctor that it was just fine to try and get pregnant at my 8 week appointment. I had and emcs so I specifically asked. I am now trying to do more research after reading this . . .
That said, my sister has children about 16ish months apart and loves how close they have become now (at 2.5 and 4) but she also says it is a lot of work!
My little girl will be nearly 4 once baby arrives & that's just perfect for me right now. I really wanted to be able to have the time & do all the baby groups etc I did with my first and because she is at nursery every afternoon I get that one on one time with my new baby. Also my daughter is so excited & it just feels so special to us all again. I also have to admit I love the fact I get 3 hours while she is a nursery to rest or take a nap if I'm feeling tired etc! My friends that have had them close say it's hard work but once they get to 2 and 3 etc then they entertain each other alot more which I def see the plus side to as my daughter always wants me or my husband to play!! I think it's a very personal choice but for me I wouldn't do any less than 2 years just because I want to give them all there own time.
