physically, i think they say to wait a year after a c section due to having had your uterus cut. I had a c section with the twins and i dont feel like my body is back to normal yet. That could be the c section and it could be because i had twins.
Emotionally, i guess everyone is different. Only you could know. I personally would love to have another baby already but i want to enjoy this moment with the twins.
It is different for different people. I have not had my fertility return so automatically, my body is not ready for another child. Emotionally, I think it would be nice to have my children close in age. I would like to be trying for a second child right around Marsi's birthday. I know a lady that was part of this board is already pregnant again so it is different for everyone. Good luck with trying for a little girl!
It really is such a huge difference from person to person, my first boys are 2 days shy of 15 months apart, which probably has some people thinking im nuts! Id love to have a third child like right now, so we arent preventing anything but we also wont try until this summer, because id really like to have a spring baby
DH and his sister are 2 years and one month apart and they have a great relationship. My sister and I are 6 1/2 years apart and we had a rocky relationship until she went off to college and we stopped sharing a bathroom--then we started getting along really well! I think there is no right answer, it's really up to you and your body.
thanks, im going to ask my GYN about it physically im probably not ready for it but emotionally I want another one so bad lol ill probably wait a while, I got pregnant at the end of january it would be nice to do that again then they can be close in birthdays. Is it true that once you have a csection you have to get one everytime?
My sister and I are about 11 years apart, and there is just the 2 of us, thats part of the reason i have always wanted my kids close together. My mother says they have 2 only children, and thats pretty much how i see it too, I moved when she was only 7, she doesnt really remember much of me ever living at home. Shes a really good kid and i love her but shes more my parents other kid than my sister, we never really had that bond or real sibling relationship
Like it was said to each there own I know the two year gap is hard but I like it the girls alreadyv play together and I like it but I know physically ( if I were having more) my doc said to not get pregnant within a year
All a very personal thing. Although I know that repeat sections too close together can cause some complications.
I love that my boys are under 2 years apart. They love each other and I bet they will have lots of fun when they get older. I think the gap works for us and we plan the next baby to be about the same distance apart. So that means we will try around the end of the year. I love being pregnant, so I know why I want to do it again so soon. For me, the newborn stage is tough, so I am not so keen to do that part right away!
