Need Advice on Spacing Between Kids

I am looking for a bit of advice on spacing my kids out. I have a 5 month old and my husband and I have been talking on getting pregnant again. I hear that having your kids close together is great for the kids. However, I'm not sure if we should wait until my little munchkin is a bit older. I'd love your advice!

"The baby"....arrrgh, This Is Vent

okay, so maybe it's just me, but I hate when people call a baby "it"...when you or someone is/was pregnant and someone called the baby "it"...It makes me so mad.

I told her, my child is not an IT. she said "well you dont know what it is yet so what else am i supposed to say" I told her "I dont know what sex THE BABY is yet, so we call our child, THE BABY" I know it's not my business when it is someone else child but it still upsets me. A girl my...

Secondary Infertilty - Advice and Support Needed!

Wondering if anyone can share their story or offer advice and support about secondary infertilty issues. We've been trying for another child and recently went through some initial examinations with a Reproductive Endocrinologist (fertiltiy specialist). Apparently everything is NORMAL! (and our first baby was conceived lickety-split!), but since its been a year, we still fall into the "unexplained infertility" category. The doctor's first suggestion is for us to try a combination of chlomid treatments, HCG injections, and Intrauterine...

Anybody Experienced This in Third Trimester?

I am 30 weeks along and past couple weeks I have had some pain in my pubic area. It generally hurt while rolling over in bed , but wasn't very bad. So I just neglected it. But since last week, the pain has increased and it also hurts a little while walking. Not always but when I am sitting at work for a long time and I get up and walk , it hurts. And today I have been feeling some pain in my inner thighs as well. All in all , this pain is not totally unmanageable to M..It reduces after I walk for a bit(sometimes I dont even have it) and I...

Anyone Else Experience Husbands Freaked by Moving babies?(Pregnant)

Being in my fifth month of pregnancy, the baby is starting to kick and move around in my tummy. Whenever he kicks, i grab my husband's hand so he can feel the baby and he isn't interested. He's super excited about the baby and talks to my belly-but when it comes to touching my tummy when the baby is right there, he freaks out and says it grosses him out....Has anyone experienced anything like this?? I just wish he was as excited about all the little kicks as I am, and all my family....definately lacks!!! Thanks...

Tell Me I'm Not the Only One, Kid Won't Sit Still

I hate feeling like I have the only kid who won't sit still. I went to a work Easter Egg hunt today and I was busy chasing my kid everywhere (or just following to make sure he was safe) while everyone else's kids basically sat and waited or stayed close to their parents. My son got mad at me when he had to share the Easter Bunny with everyone else. Here I sit in the corner with my kid screaming until he could get himself together to move on. So, my son is just always on the move. He will just run and not stop, which can be scary. We...

Pregnant and Terrified!

After MUCH thought, including being 24 hours away from a vasectomy and re-scheduling, my husband and I decided to try for baby #3. I just felt that someone was "missing" from our family as odd as that may sound. We half-heartedly tried for a few months and I am now 6 weeks pregnant. Well now that it is real I am kind of panicked. All of the "cons" about a third (such as time/space/money/postponing an already on-hold career which means continuing to work opposite shifts from my husbands job)seem much bigger now that it is a reality and I...
