I was just wondering if any of you ladies have kids a year apart. If you do:
1. Was it planned
2. How many months was your baby when you got pregnant
3. Did you feel ashamed if it was not planned
Sorry for not updating sooner but been crazy busy. AF actually showed up on Monday so bitter/sweet I guess. I was begining to accept possibility of being pregnant and I was going to start trying next month anyways. I just hope when I actually start AF stays away. Thanks ladies.

We just have the one, but are starting to TTC next week - which will put them 13 months apart. I only want two children and want to have them close together so they can enjoy the same things at the same time.
Well I don't know if I am but I have the funny feeling I might, different from the paranoia feeling I get every month. Like Blond6ft and Exicted4Oct, I was planning on trying for no. 2 soon but I wanted to wait until LO was at least 6 months that way they'll be at least 18 months apart. Anything sooner just seems too soon, I don't know what'll do. I'll be worried about work, what people will say, etc. I'm in my late 30s too so I was going to def try this year.
Mommy2Boys - Could you please paste the link to the closely spaced children board, I can't find it.
If I am, glad to know there are other people actually planning on trying soon.
My first 2 are 19 1/2 months apart, so a little more than a year but still thats pretty close.
No, not planned AT ALL! Actually, none of my kids have been planned, all surprises but I wouldn't trade it for the world!
Alyssa was 10 months old when I got pregnant with Kaden
No, I wasn't ashamed at all, I was very happy and excited and so was DH once he got over the initial shock lol...he went through the "stunned" phase with all 3 kids, so when I got preggo with Cole, I knew what to expect from him when I told him, he has never been excited right at first, just because we were never trying so it was always a shock at first...
My boys are 20 months apart, but the 2nd pregnancy was planned. My first wasn't and I was ashamed and disappointed in myself but it turned out great. Sometimes the things we least expect turn out beautifully! If you are pregnant, I think you'll do just fine.
Mommy2boys - Thanks for the link. You are right, I found the board very helpful. I haven't posted questions yet but I've seen posts that address my worries and concerns.
Thanks ladies - If I am I should know in about a week, too scared to test now. My cycle has been 24 days and today is 25, been getting preg nausea since last week, period feels like it's going to start but nothing yet....it could be that I'm going back to normal cycle of 26-27 days. Will keep you updated.
Romaine - Wow Twins!!! Congratulations!!! Will you be joining the Closely Spaced Children board? Once I find out and it's + I guess I'll be on 3 boards, Nov DDC, CSC and this board.
Genevieve is my first but DH and I want to try again in June of NEXT year, if everything goes according to plan (which i know is silly to think it will ) We will only try again if I have a job after I grad from Massage Therapy school next April, and if DH knows whats going on with the job he's at now and he stays there. We want Genevieve and the next to be close in age and she'll be like 2 and a half if we get prego first time in June. (hahaha first time for me? I should probably start trying now because it'll probably take another 14 months! Genevieve was planned, but yeah im not much help either just wanted to share, and i agree with what disturbedangel said, if you have the means to support both of them its no ones business
My two oldest are 11 months apart. They are just like twins basically. They eat together, pee together, poop together (thank goodness for 2 bathrooms). KJ was not planned, but Owen was. I wanted to get pregnant right away. But, i really regret not having William right after Owen.
