hmm, might want to wait just a few months before trying unless you're prepared to have 2 babies for a while smile
My DH says "two's not enough let's have another one" and MOST days I agree with him.
Looking forward to hearing the happy news!

My husband is fond of having a big family and our daughter is 1yrs old and hes been asking me since she was about 6 months to have another one!!
I do want one too but not now because I want my lil princess to grow up having a wonderful time being the baby (getting spoil at the time too) So really its up to whether you are ready too.
I think its good to wait a bit as the eldest one is force to grow up too quickly once the second bub's introduce into the family. This is why the majority of eldest kids are more mature then their siblings.
Other factors u have to consider is your health and sibling rilvary!!
You just gave birth not long ago and your body needs to recover. Having a body changes your hormones and puts alot of stress on your body. You will need at least 6months to recover before having your next. This will ensure a more healthy baby as well.
The other thing u might like to consider is whether you 1st one will be jealous of the new born because there will be another person sharing mum and dad's attention, love and affection.
But if u have thought about it all and decide to have another one then I wish you all the best.
My mum had 3 kids under 3 (I was the next after many years) and she always says how tired she was all the time, and because she was so tired the kids didn't get her 100% attention. It also weakened her immunity, so she was always getting sick with tonsilitis or colds too.
Pregnancy takes a lot out of your body both physically and nutritionally, and I have heard it said before that it takes 4 years for your body to fully recover!
Like everything, it's a personal decision, and if you think you can handle the extra, extra work load then you are one supermum! All the best!!!
I get plenty of one on one time with all of them, but seeing them love each other is the best experience ever. This way the money is better too, i got $90 a fortnight with one, now i get $520. And they don't cost that much!
People always say gee you must be busy, and we are, but it's all down to organisation, we still go out all the time as a family, you just have to accept that stuff takes a lot longer.
If you have a supportive partner I can't see that you'd have a problem, it's definitely worked for us.

I think you both have to talk about the subject and do you think you cope with 2 small children and especially with one income coming in?
