My name is Sarah I have a husband Joe and sons Creed 3 and Luke is a little over a month. We are not trying YET and I'm not sure we will be "trying" because my Dh has told me he doesn't want me on birth control and I am going to obey his wishes. My cycles have always been messed up (I have PCOS and was on my 4th cycle of clomid and it took us 22 months to concieve Luke.Had no problem concieving Creed!) so the "pull out" method wont work. I am scared to get pregnant when I have a 6 week old baby but I know God is in control and so we are not going to stop anything. My Dh comes from a family of 5 kids and I come from a family of 9 kids so my Dh wants a "big" family too....
Does any one have babies really close like that? When did AF return to you when you were BF'ing? and how long did it take to get pregnant while BF'ing?
Can't wait to meet everyone!!!

Im sorry I can't offer much advice here..I never breastfed any of mine. I think it would be great to have kids close in age..the closest of mine...my youngest 2 are 2 years apart...My children are 14,11,7,and soon to be 5!
I think the closer they are in age, the closer they are to each other in everything!
Nice to meet you..btw..Im Denise(co host of this board), been ttc for 4 months after a tubal reversal.

Hi Sarah and welcome!!! I am Denise and I have 5 children. My children are not close in age at all. The closest is 2 1/2 years apart. I did nurse my children. AF usually didn't start for me until they were 9 to 11 months old. Each time was a little different. I do not get pregnant easily so it wasn't a problem for me of worring if I would get pregnant again. I would look into Natural Family Planning. It has both for TTC and Trying not to conceive.
I don't b/f either. my kid's are 5, 4, 1, and 1 month. My son and dd are really close to each other they get along but they also fight like cat's and dogs there really good at that. And they are really good to there other little brothers,
