Re: Desperately seeking advice.

I'm sort of in the same shoes. Our third is going to be a little bit earlier than we planned. Not quite as close together as yours, about 17 months apart. My first and second are 20 months apart (planned but got pregnant sooner than I thought I would, lol).

 

My sister has become the cautionary tale at our OBGYN. She got pregnant a couple weeks before she was going to have her IUD put in and canceled the appt to move it back when she wasn't feeling good even. She was 4 weeks postpartum when she got pregnant, her baby was around 8 weeks old when she found out. At first she was really mad and angry at everyone. However, her baby is here now and her two daughters are only 9 1/2 months apart. They are going to be in the same grade at school even. But now that she is through the first couple weeks of adjustment, she and her husband have their system down and she's decided it's not so bad afterall.
