I'm here!!!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I swear I just left my last DDC... April 08 was a good group of women Anyway, my name is Rachel and I just got a BFP on October 1st!! Our son is 5.5 months and will be 13-14 months when this baby is born.. insane much? Yes, yes I am... but at least it keeps things interesting around here!! This baby was VERY much planned, we just had no idea it would happen so fast, since I just got my first PPAF in September!!! What else.. we are an Army family so we were hoping to get pregnant before DH leaves for a 6 month deployment at the end of the month because that way he will be here for the birth and a good majority of baby X's first year, which he is missing a lot of with Trevor. So yeah.. that is me!! Anyone out there got experience with 2 babies this close together??

congrats! i only know someone who has 2 babies 14 months apart. it's a tandem nursing adventure! other than that i think it's pretty good. your ds and i share the same birthday (such a great day to be born)

Welcome. I don't have any experience with babies that close together...my DD will be 3 when the baby is born. But I wish you the best of luck.

Thanks guys! I need to post over on the nursing board to get some tips on how to handle being pregnant and nursing... I haven't even thought about tandeming yet, I really don't know if I'll be able to. I get really clausterphobic with just Trev nursing, I don't know if I would be able to do 2!!

You should totally ask about nursing in the breastfeeding board, the mamas there are so knowledgeable! : Congrats, I'm so glad all worked out in terms of timing etc.

Welcome!

My kids are 17.5mos apart, but that's still a different ballgame than 13-14mos apart. I'd be happy to answer your questions about nursing through pregnancy and tandem nursing. I'm still nursing both of mine (though my 3y/o nurses just a couple times a week, so it's not super crazy...yet!), so this will be my second time nursing through pregnancy. It adds in a challenge.

With a baby as young as yours, you'll need to work to keep up your milk supply as long as possible. I didn't do that very well last time. It takes a lot of protein, and I was icked out by meat, so it was hard for me. Good luck to you.

i am not in this ddc (or any of them for that matter) but just wanted to assure you my mom had my brothers 14 months part and they are AWESOME! they always played together and had each other in highschool it was a really cool experience for them! so I am sure your two will be just as close and LOVE the fact they are so close in age. CONGRATULATIONS and best of luck to your husband!

Hey Rachel!! Welcome!! I think it is great your kids will be so close together, yes a lot of work, but I am sure many, many rewards! And so happy you did get your BFP before hubby was deployed.

my nieces are 12 mos and 3 weeks apart and SIL seems to be doing ok I think as they get older though it will be cool cause they'll be in to the same things and such almost like twins

congrats :
