Congratulations on your pregnancy, i'm on my first so I cant really give any advice - sorry. I do want to have my children close together so that when i decide the shop is closed thats it. I hope you get some advice from mums in a similar situation to yourself and i hope you have an easy pregnancy free from morning sickness, nausea and chronic fatigue.

Mine are just under 2 years apart which I found quite hard as one was hitting toddler years and terrible twos just as I had a newborn, but now they are older they are really close. It will probably be pretty hard for you at first as you will have a little one to look after whilst you are pregnant, but I am sure you will manage to find a good routine that works for you. Good luck.

Wow Tina, your brave! I guess it'll almost be like having twins! The only advice I can give you is that my mum had my bro and sis just within a year. Each year they are the same age for just over a week. She said it was really hard at first, but you get yourself into a routine and then you're away. My sister had her 1st two girls 14 months apart. Again she said it was really hard and she has recently just had No3, 3 and half years after No2 and she has said this was much easier than going from 1 to 2. Having said all that, you will get all the sleepless nights, colic new baby bit over and done with quicker than the rest of us.
Wishing you LOTS of good luck for a very well behaved number 2.

my first 2 are 2 years and 4 months apart, i thought it was quite easy, we were hoping for the same this time but i got caught very early, mine will be 22 months apart, i picked up my first when i was pregnant with my second and i pick up my little boy who is 16 months now, realistically you can't not pick up your child for 9 months, i don't think its anything to worry about,
and i am very sick this time and honestly you just get on with it as you have no other choice, its like all woman are superwoman

Hi. I have just under a 2 yr age gap. My son was just over 1 when i was pg and i stil picked him up and did everything he needed as u have 2. Lik amypicot said, u cant not do it for 9 months. Once my 2nd was born i found things very easy. I was lucky tho as didnt hav wingy children so i didnt really hav any probs at all. Im more worried now as im ttc and wil hav at least a 6yr age gap and its more worrying 4 me that a 2yr gap!
