i want another baby NOW!!!!!


hey ladies, i have a 16 week old baby and i already really want another baby! im planning on waiting till the beggining of next year to start trying but it took me a long time to concieve my baby and im really tempted to start trying now. i had a short labour with lilly but a very difficult delivery, her heartrate was dropping with each contraction so they had to perform an emergancy episiotomy and drag her out with forceps. thats the only thing that put me off having another because recovering from that was the worst thing ever and im scared of having to go through that again! i also bled for 6 weeks after my daughters birth which was a pain in the arse! it was all worth it though in the end i just dont fancy having to do that again as even now, 16 weeks after the episiotomy it still hurts to have sex with my partner and hurts to even use tampons during my period. id love another baby though and dont want them to have too much of an age gap between them so im torn on what to do. im on the pill at the mo but my partner wants another one as much as i do and thinks i should come off the pill now and start trying, but i want to atleast enjoy my daughters 1st year of life before i start worrying about a new baby coming so i really do want to wait, but the urge to try for another one is so overwhelming! is there anyone else who is in a similar position to me? x

Hiya hun and welcome to wtt!

I have an 8 month old little girl and like you I was broody almost as soon as she was born.

We want a close age gap too and I also want to have had my next baby before I turn 30 (I'm 28 now) so we'll be ttc number 2 in May this year once Summer is 10 months old.

My husband also would have ttc when Summer was only a few months old but after a traumatic labour I ended up having an emergency c section so I was told to wait 6 months before ttc again. I'm not really sure why we decided to wait until she's 10 months!

i keep going through phases of wanting to wait and then wanting one now! so i think im gunna wait, although i really do want one lol. i think waiting a good few months is the best idea, it gives your body a chance to get back to normal and i want my stomach muscles to toughen up again before i get pregnant lol. i dont want to get too big and end up with stretchmarks, sounds selfish i know but since puberty my backside and hips have been covered in them! i have a few on my legs too and im very self concious about them! i dont have them on my stomach tho thank god and i really dont want them there! theres not much of my body that i do like but my stomachs my favourite part id be so depressed if i lost that x
