My first was born 15 months ago and I just found out I am pregnant with months apart if I am lucky. Yikes.

14 months between the 1st 2; 2.5yrs between #2 and #3; and 4yrs between #3 and #4. (I wised up a bit [:p]) Seriously, I couldn't have planned #1 and #2 better if I HAD planned it. They are very close, they take care of each other and after the 1st year it has been a Godsend to have them so close. Best of luck. Have you seen a doc yet?

The first three are each 2 1/2 years apart. There will be almost 5 years between my last child and the new baby. It took me this long to get up the courage after the last PE experience to try again. So far, this pregnancy is going much better than the last - no PE at this time.[:)]

Hi and welcome! My first two are 22 months apart. I did not have PE with the first, but I did with the second. My third will be four years from my second. My peri said lots of rest and a high plane of nutrition were very important (both were probably lacking the last time when I was running around after a 1 year old! [:p]). I certainly feel better this time! Good luck to you!

Heh heh,
Mine will be 17 months apart.
I am getting an IUD after this one is born. I am excited, but this was very close.
I'd love to have another when this one is about 3 years old.(hopefully $$ will be better, and we will have applied the addition to our home that we want to.)

However, I was VERY sick with Bella(1st preg) and am doing MUCH better this time.(fingers crossed!!!)
I kind of agree with Mada's theory about the body being able to recognized the state of the pregnancy.

Keep us posted,
Love J

Mine will be about 11 months apart, if this second one goes full term . . . which I am praying. I already feel a difference with this pregnancy. I began swelling with the first one even before I know I was pregnant . . . with this one, I have lost 3 pounds instead of gaining and I am almost 19 weeks.

Good luck and I will keep you in my prayers [:D]

How do I feel? Totally excited! I always wanted a big family, and DH and I are just thrilled! And I've learned something- how to find the "protection" section in the local Rite Aid. [;)]


Better still, you want to put a shout out to Jessica (Simivlyhills) who just posted to the topic below this one the about how her pregnancy is going. If I remember right, she got pregnant again 5 months after her baby was born pretty early. I think at 27 weeks Jump in here Jessica!! How do you feel about having Tony and this baby so close together?

::Laughs:: We're in the same boat. After 2 1/2 months in the hospital, and coming home, the night we got our new apartment, we... eh... kinda started on another little dude. If I go to term, they'll be 13 months apart. That's not too bad- my mom had my sister and I 14 months apart. If I have Jake before June 2nd, I'll have Irish twins on my hands.
Good luck, I'm sure you'll love it!

she is now home, and i think my hubby and i did something we shouldn't have. (i blame it all on being too stressed out for 4 months to do anything!) karuna is a little over 4 months old. how far apart are your babies (even if you're pg now)??

Mine will be 17 months apart if I last until 38 weeks. And both were planned. I was told the youner I was when I had them, the lesser the effects of pre-e would be. So we wasted no time...
