Hi All!
I am new to this whole site. When I was pregnant with my son I used WebMd alot but this seems like a more active site and boards. So I am still on the pill but planning on going off next month to try for baby number 2. My son is 16 months right now. So I need some honesty. Is it hard to have children that young? I am not worried about my sanity I am worried about the financial part of it. Especially with two in day care. I am also worried about my son getting jealous and how do you "share the love" so to speak.

Two little ones in daycare can be expensive. I am pregnant now with a boy who will be 18 months younger than his sister. So I am not sure about how easy/hard it will be. I have two other children but they are all 3 or 4 years apart. So we will see. Financially it will be rough with two in diapers but I guess you just make it worth. Yours will be at least 2 years apart which I think is pretty average spacing.

Jealousy never seemed an issue with mine but they were only 12 month apart so didn't really know life without each other & i never had to pay out for childcare as my husband worked & i did two days a week but my mum did childcare for free, but i left after a few months as wanted to be a full time SAHM which i was lucky enough to do.
..together for 12 years..
