hey,does anyone else think i'm mad for wanting a baby in this economic state?!i know when family find out they'll think we're mad but we really want a baby bro or sis for our son whos 15mths...we thought it unfair to make him wait til the recessions over.does anyone else have else have this sort of age gap between their children? was wondering what its like having them this close?

Hiah, I agree,don't let finance spoil your chance of having more. If I had seriously sat down,looked at my finances and worked everything out id have never have had children. As it is I have 2 boys,with 17mths apart and its fantastic. ttc for my 3rd with no joy so far . I think having them close together is best-obviously iwould say that,but Im hoping mine will be best friends as well as brothers. Hard work at first but I can honestly say apart from extra washing and ironing there isnt much difference! Good luck to you x

thanks ladies!it all makes me feel much better!it not so much that we are in a bad financial situaion its just you know with jobs going it all makes me a bit jittery.but seeing as i work in a school i suppose i doubt i'll lose that job...hmmm i think its more the age gaps being so close but thinking about that too even if i got pregnant tomoro(and we allknow it doesnt happen like that!) they would still be 23mths apart which isnt that crazy!thanks so much its put it all in perspective for me!now i can get trying!
just one thing does anyone think those pregnacare conception tablets are any good?was thinking of trying them.....oh and how do all you lot get those cute pictures with the names and ages under yourmsgs?
