I think deciding when to have a second baby is a very persoanl choice. Some believe there should be a 2 year age gap, others beleive the closer the better. I have a one year old daughter and have recently found out that I am pregnant - 8 weeks now and going well, (apart from being tired and having some nausea). My daughter and her sibling will be 19months apart and I am actually pretty happy about that. I had a vaginal delivery with my daughter... with a long traumatic labour attached, and hope to have another vaginal delivery that will be easier second time around. I have no false illusions that it will be easy having two under two, but I have a very easy going daughter and a very helpful and supportive husband, which gives me the confidence I need to be able to cope. I always wanted my children to grow up close in age so that they can share things as they grow. (I have one brother 5 years younger... we were never close and had nothing at all in common as we grew up.) I know it is different for everybody, but you do what feels right for you. You need to weigh up all the facts realistically... can you afford it? Would you cope? My husband and I talked alot before trying to conceive baby number 2.
I hope that whatever you decide to do, you follow your heart. Babies are such a precious gift and thought and concideration should be put into the decision to have them...
Goodluck and keep us posted smile smile smile
