    Default Close pregnancies and impact on body

    Hi hi. Was just hoping ladies could share how having close pregnancies impacted their bodies.
    Dd is 8 months old and I am now pregnant again. I found due to being fit and active I had a very enjoyable pregnancy with little impact. No residual weight gain, easier labour than with DD1 (i was quite overweight then), and good recovery. Now after being pretty inactive for the last 8 months I am really worried that I am going to have issues.
    Thanks ladies.

    I fell pregnant with DS when DD3 was 3 months old. I was probably more tired in that pregnancy but overall it was no different to my other pregnancies. I suffered from SPD pretty badly so I guess my only gripe was that I was caring for a newborn while being in a fair amount of pain. My own fault really

    DS (number three baby) was born 13months after my 2nd dd. found out I was preg the day dd2 was four months old!! It was my easiest pregnancy- no morning sickness, but my pregnancies were all quite 'easy'. I had all c-sections too. I think our bodies can handle quite a bit.

    I have three ds's under 4... Ds1 and 2 are 17 months apart and ds2 and 3 are just over two years apart. I found ds3 the hardest, not so much on my body I was just exhausted looking after two toddlers and trying to grow bubba... 1 was definitely the easiest as I could sleep when i want to. (I really struggle with tiredness when I'm pregnant)

    I will have 5 under 6...my smallest gap so far has been getting pregnant when baby #3 was 3 months. I feel a bit more tired and uncomfortable each pregnancy, but this could be true with a larger gap.
    Had some problems with anaemia though.
