Re: when is a good time to concieve dc#2....

DS is an early August baby (2007). I got pg with DD in late Dec 2008 when DS was 17 months old and she was born late September 2009. They are 26 months apart less one day. I think it is a perfect age difference because I am not to far away from DS being a baby and he is/was able to entertain himself when I need to focus on the baby. This was vital when she was a newborn. He also is able to help me and understands things. I think it is a great age difference.

We wanted our DC to be close in age. We started TTC#2 when DS was 8 months old and got pregnant when he was 9 months old. They will be almost exactly 18 months apart.

I know it will be very hard in the beginning because DS is still so dependent on us, but I also know that it will be worth it when they get older.

You will know when you are ready.

I just needed some time not being pregnant. And I wanted DD to be a little more self sufficient before going for #2. But that's just me.

honestly, its when you feel ready for it and your dh does too!Chat Icon our girls are about 2 and a half yrs apart...and I have to say, it is amazing! they get along great, and Sammie (older dd) is the best helper, etc. It warms my heart and for those who have seen her "in action", she is the poster child for being an amaizng big sister!Chat Icon

Re: when is a good time to concieve dc#2....

if ur confused and feeling overwhelmed i'd say you're not quite ready. enjoy your dd now and the rest will fall into place when the time is rightChat Icon

My DD will be 2 in May and we plan on TTC this summer , so our children will (hopefully) be 3 years apart.

Agreed.

DS was born Dec 07. It wasnt until he was 18 months that I was ready to even consider it (DH still wasnt ready) Now at 2, I see DS and I know he is ready to be a big brother. I was just never someone who wanted 2 under 2 for a few reasons.

I would start trying now, the only things blocking me, is being in a wedding in teh fall out of state, and I dont want a Dec baby because I feel like with all the family bdays we already have (DS included) and the holidays I know my kids wouldnt each get their own day just and parties would be shared which isnt fair. So we will wait a few more months.

We are planning to try again in the summer. This would make them a little over 2 years apart if everything worked out.

I am trying now and my DD is 17 months old so if I get lucky and get pregnant they will basically be 2 years and 1 month apart in age.

Re: when is a good time to concieve dc#2....

DD and DS will be exactly 4 years apart. I wouldn't have it any other way. I really didn't want them too close together and any further apart would be too much of a gap for us. I have truly enjoyed my alone time with DD and am ready for another little one. I think this is a very personal decision.
