Before having kids, I wanted them close together- I wanted then to be 2 years apart in school. After having my first daughter, I just never felt "ready". I had an awful tear that took well over a year to be fully back to normal. And that made me too scared to go for it again. My body just didn't feel ready.
As time was running out for my kids to be 2 school years apart, we decided it was time to try again. We did the "NTNP" for a while, bc I was too scared to just go for it. I just never fully felt ready. But I knew I wanted another. Then I became pregnant with Lucy. She was scheduled to be due in January, so 3 school years apart from my first daughter... But she came early, so they very well could be 2 years apart after all.

For me, it's tough having 2 little ones. I can't imagine I'd they were closer in age and both needing me and feeling spread even thinner. We've decided that "if" we have another, it won't be til Lucy is closer to 3.
