Broody and wanting a second


So here we are, seven and a bit months since birth, and I am incredibly broody. Not just a little broody but at the stage of counting down the months until we can start trying for baby number 2.

What we can't decide is when it is OK to have the second, how many months between kids is an acceptable time? Will we be judged if we fall pregnant too soon? Will it take ages to conceive? Will we struggle and regret having a baby too quickly? Will I be too old to have a third?

We thought about 18 -20 months would probably be the shorted time to have between babies, so that leaves us about 6 weeks until we can seriously start thinking about it but is this too soon?

How soon did you start trying for the next baby?

  1. well, at this stage I was just pregnant with emma. we wanted around 18 months between asnd got 16.

    it's hard but so rewarding now they interact with each other. xx go for it.

  2. I think we will be sooner rather than later in trying. Hopefully it wont take long

  3. […] could be because I am already massively broody but I think it is because I know when we will start trying again and that day is not today! […]
