Yup, I'm pregnant<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
I am freaking out though because I have 14 month old who is very spirited and needy and who I just love so much that I can't imagine what adding a little baby to the mix is going to do to him. This pregnancy was not planned and I am feeling very guilty about having my babies spaced so close.<br>
Anyone else have close spaced babies and feel so glad that they do?<br>
Hugs

Congrats!<br>
I know this isn't the same, but a friend of mine accidently became pregnant at 2 months postpartum, and her children are 1 year apart. They are best friends and that even at ages 1 and 2, they would play together and entertain each other. It sounds like it takes extra patience and work, but that there are some advantages in having them close in age.<br>
Good luck to you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I feel your angst <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> My DD is 15 months old and I am due next month ~ surprise!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> I feel guilty that she will still be such a baby, that I haven't dedicated as much time to this pregnancy and preparing for the arrival. Sometimes I feel like this little one is being slighted <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> However, DH and I talk about it a lot and we know that when this little one arrives we will be full of wonder all over again.<br>
Good luck,<br>

My brother is only 15 months older than I am. I remember always being really grateful for the fact that he wasn't so much older than I that he could "lord it over" me or know a whole lot more than I did. The arrangement worked so well that I wanted to do the same thing with my children. I originally planned to start trying again when my first was about three months old. But then my midwife made me promise not to start trying again until 18 months post-partum, so I ended up waiting. (Actually, it turned out that my fertility cycle didn't even return until 22 months post-partum anyway, because of all the breastfeeding I was doing.) I also didn't count on how long it might take me to conceive even after my fertility returned!
