Question for Mommies and Soon to be Mommies

When do you plan on TTC for dc #2?

I have been having baby fever for a little bit now. But, I still want to enjoy Kaprese by herself for a little bit longer.....

Re: Question for Mommies and Soon to be Mommies

  • i am due in early may....we have no plans to even remotely think about ttc # 2 until #1 is AT LEAST 2 if not 3 yrs old !!!

    a 4-5 yr age difference is what we're aiming for i think !


  • same for me....I'm thinking 3-4 years....or at least after ds is pottytrained!
  • well, either when DD is out of diapers or when we get a new bigger house. truly, we cant have #2 until we are in a bigger house or build an addition. neither is likely to happen anytime soon. i would not be surprised if there is a 4+ year gap between our kids - which would suit me just fine.
  • At least three year age difference.  We want this one (due in April) to be out of diapers and in pre-school.  I am thinking more of a 4-5 year age difference though, I can not imagine being pregnant and having a toddler to chase after..I am so exhausted some days and I don't have any kids.   
  • Oh man, I think I have slight baby fever too...already!  It's weird though, when I think about being pregnant and giving birth, I can't imagine it being anyone else than the baby I already have!! 

    Our original "plan" was to TTC in April or May, when DS will be a year old.  DH is in school getting his masters right now, so it's just going to depend on his job situation with finances and insurance.

    I know what you mean about wanting more time with just Kaprese, that would be my first thought if I accidentally got pregnant any time soon.


  • It's going to be a while.  I'm a very independent person and so this little one is a huge adjustment for me.  So I don't want to think about another one for a few years at least.
  • Sometime early next year.  I would like them to be 2-3 years apart.

    Ideally, I would like to be in a bigger house b/c we are pretty cramped here, but I keep reminding myself that I grew up in a small house with three silbings, so it can be done!

  • My girls are 5 1/2 years apart.  It's great, but I kinda wish they were around 3 1/2-4 years apart so that they would have more interest in each other.
  • I got back and forth on this....sometimes I get baby fever now and ds is only 4 months, lol!!!

     But then I am like you...I want to enjoy just gavin for a while.

    ideally I would like 3 years in between...I wouldn't mind ttc after gavin's 2nd birthday.
