Hi.. Newbie to bubhub but have used other forums before. So just found out I'm pregnant, my first baby is only 5 months old. I go between stages of freaking out and being a bit excited.i know I should be grateful that I can even have babies and my DD is the picture or perfection and happiness. I just feel so bad for her, she is going to have to share everything and I honestly feel like I couldn't love another baby as much as I love her. I also feel really bad for myself - selfish I know but my poor body! I'm breastfeeding full time and know my last period date but my cycle is much longer so not sure my due date. Anyway how the h*ll am I going to do this? I didn't even have a chance to get back to my pre pregnancy weight so baby one fat will now become baby two fat. Gosh I'm hardly making sense. Any advice????

You will be fine and your dd will be also be fine. There is a 17 month age gap between my first and second, and a 15 month age gap between the second and third. It is doable and for me has worked great. Congratulations and enjoy

Mine are 13 months apart. I struggled the first year (mainly because of pnd) but they are 3 and 4 yrs now and I'm in love with the age gap now. I have one boy and one girl and they are like a little old married couple. They bicker constantly but spend every waking moment playing together and have a really close bond/relationship. I love that they are around the same developmental level so they like the same games, TV shows etc and can share friends.

Hi, I'm in the same boat, due in oct and had ds last aug. I was freaking out as well about loving another baby as much as my ds but it is a gift and I'm getting excited. We just found out this week that we are expecting a girl. I know it will be hard at the beginning but I think there are a lot of pros about having them close

I have 18 months between my 2. I have to say that I love the gap. The first year was easy as my son was too young to be jealous and since then they have been into a lot of the same developmental toys.
My 2 are both at school now in classes 1 year apart and go on all their excursions together. They have the same friends and get invited to the same birthday parties. They both say they are lucky that they get to take their best friend home every day.

My first 2 are 14 months apart and in a lot of ways its easier, they are best friends and people even ask if they are twins. tho it is hard coz they fight a lot but most of the tome they love each other. early on when I first had DD I found it very easy I just kinda just went with it it will be ok, and all work out

I have a 16 month gap between my boys. I have definitely found it challenging (but my 2nd has been an absolutely terrible sleeper) but now the boys are a bit bigger (1 and 2 and a bit) it's nice to see them start interacting with each other and giggling together. Now that DS2 is walking I know I'm in for a world of mischief with the 2 of them!!
I was still breast feeding my first when I fell pregnant, and continued to breast feed him through the entire pregnancy. Once bub was born I was actually feeding both of them for about 7 months (DS1 weaned just before his 2nd birthday).
Best of luck!

Thanks everyone I am definitely investing in a little rocking swing for the next one. And a walker if my dd isn't walking yet haha that way she can follow me faster winging.
