    My Darling Husband actually mentioned this the other week, I told him I liked my vagina too much to do that to her

    It depends on a lot of factors. What kind of pregnancy I had with the first baby, what our current baby’s needs are, what our finances look like, how healthy I am and whether or not I feel like I could have a healthy second pregnancy.

    I gave you a Hell Maybe – because we are ‘one and done’ but one of my best friends had two kids that are almost exactly a year apart and they’re great! Baby #2 was a surprise (careful getting pregnant while breastfeeding, ladies, that “natural birth control” doesn’t always work, lol).

    Nope, not happening.  I want to enjoy being not pregnant for awhile.  Also, I feel like you should enjoy all the nuances of being a first time parent.  You really don’t get a chance to do that for very long if you’re pregnant less than a year later. 

    I have a couple friends that did this.  They feel bad for their 2nd born because they spend more time running after the 1st born than they do just getting to know the baby.  I can see why that’d be a problem.

    That pretty much sounds like hell to me.

    Nope, no way no how would I want 2 children in diapers at the same time.  Only way this would happen is if Darling Husband carries the child for 9 months instead of me.  I am having an easy pregnancy but hate being pregnant.

    NO. I don’t want 2 in diapers at the same time.

    We don’t have kids yet, but my parents had my brother and when he was around 8 months, SURPRISE – you’re having twins!! So they ended up with three kids under 18 months. Every time I see a mom try to manage two small children, I wonder how the hell my mom did it with 3!

    That being said, I definitely want to wait until the first kid is walking and talking before we try for a 2nd.

    For some reason I can’t vote, but I would vote hell yes.  Because I want to have my babies close together.  I never though I would say this a few months ago, but I’m excited to be pregnant again.  I go a little back and forth because I want to enjoy Kayla for awhile too!  My sister and I are 16 months apart and really close so that impacts my decision!

    I actually talked about it (hypothetically) about 4 hours after Dirty Delete was born. Still riding the new-baby high, I guess. She’s almost 2 now and still an only child.

    But it wasn’t then and isn’t now really an option. Maybe in a year or two..

    Pretty much right after Addie was born I told my husband I want a million more.  🙂  I think it’s no secret I totally have the baby rabies again!  For me, it got really strong when Addie got about 9 months.
