I had my DD Jessica on June 12th 08, and have just discovered I'm pregnant again with #2, due around 5th May 09 which myself and my husband are delighted about. My babies will have just 11 months between them - I wondered if anyone else had 2 babies very close in age, and if you have any survival tips to share as I feel like I must be mad!!

Hi and welcome to PP!
I am currently 29 weeks pregnant and have a 1 year old daughter! There will be 15 months between my 2! I sometimes wonder if I am crazy but it's too late now!!!!!

Hi lacewing, welcome to PP, hope you'll come on a lot more in the future, we mostly hang out in the Lounge forum. Gorgeous baby, very cute!
There is three and a half years between my two but that was mostly down to taking 15 months to fall pregnant the second time, but for us it worked out for the best I think. At least with a small gap you get all the nappies and weaning and potty training over and done with a short space of time rather than have years of nappies ahead of you. Congrats on the pregnancy, Let us know how it goes.

I only have the one as well but also would like to welcome you to pp.
Congratulations on your daughter(she looks lovely) ad congrats on your pregnancy.
Like nicola says there are a few on here with small age gaps.

Hiya welcome to pp,
im pretty new on here too,
Im mummy to Jack whos 15months and number 2 is due in a couple of weeks, so i cant say how it is yet but the pregnancy is certainly harder work with a baby in tow, just be very aware of how much u lift as my back has suffered alot with jack not walking or crawling until he was 13mnths xx

I'm Karen and mami to Hollie who is 13 months old.

i think the trick is to rest as much as possible. My mum had 6, me being the oldest. And she had 4 in 4 years. Crazy woman.
Anyway she used to make the evening dinner at around 2 and heat it up later because it was before the older ones had to be picked up from school but also because most of the babies had a nap around then. And it saved the chaos at tea time esp coz most babies can be ratty at that time.
Also to not get to worried if the house is a mess. I tell everyone that they are welcome at anytime but they take us as they find us. And if they dont understand then they obv are not very good friends anyway.
One last piece is to try and have a major declutter before baby is born, less stuff mess less things to tidy up.
