Hey
Hey everyone. How are you all? I hope you all are fine. I am writing this to get some bits of advice. I am 31 and my baby is 7 months old now. We want to have another baby. Is it too early to think about it? Should we wait for some more time? Looking forward to some good advice. TIA.

Congratulations on your baby! Dear, 31 isn't a big age so you can wait for some time. Your baby is just 7 months old. He needs your time and attention. Also, if you naturally conceived him, then take good care of yourself. Fertility declines as we age. We need to do healthy eating in order to remain fit. You can start trying after he is a year old. The rest is on you. Stay blessed!

Hi Jessica. Welcome to the forum! Congratulations on your baby! I think it's a bit too soon to get another baby. You aren't old to be in a hurry either. You can easily have a baby later. Have you check with your doctor? I think your body still needs to recover from your first baby. And you child needs attention, care and efforts that will be hard while pregnant. Many women do it though. My mother got pregnant with my brother when I was just 4 months. She was well taken care of by her doctor and she was fit.But she always remembers it as a time when she was always in a hurry and uncomfortable, because she had morning sickness the first 3 months. It really depends on each woman and circumstances x

Congratulations to you for your first baby. It must have been an amazing feeling, right? I'm so happy that you want another kid. Kids are a blessing, tbh. I love kids so much. Anyway, I think it's a little early. I mean don't you think it would be difficult to manage everything after the second baby? You should wait. But that's just a suggestion. If you wish to, you can always go for it.

I often see questions like this one. Personally, I myself haven't gone for a second child yet. But I think there's no harm in it if you really want to. I've seen many go for the next even though the first is still young. It turns out absolutely fine. I guess the reason I haven't gone for the second child yet is that its a tougher process for me. Sadly I am unable to conceive. I went the surrogacy route for my one and only daughter. I absolutely love her to bits. Anyway. I'm still thinking constantly of a second baby these days. Maybe DH and I will finally book another appointment with our clinic. Ah, I get so excited thinking about it. I have my fingers crossed for you. Go for it. Keep us updated too!

Hey! It is right time to have babies at this age. As you are growing old it would be difficult to conceive later. When a woman gets 32+ it is hard for her to conceive sometimes. My sister who was 35 tried to conceive baby but failed. She tried much time but the result was same. She was so upset and her doctor told her that it is hard to conceive a baby at this age. She already has 2 children. She wanted to expand her family and then she went for surrogacy. So she asked many people for suggestions. All of them gave positive review except 3-4 because they didn't know about it. So someone suggested her a clinic in Europe. She went there with her husband and they were so confident about their decision. So clinic provided them all the facilities and the healthy surrogate. Now they are blessed with a baby. I am so happy for them.

Well, what I believe is being 31 is no greater number to make any hurry in having children. You got enough time. There are women who conceived in mid 30's. So there would be no big issue. You have to take a good care of your baby. Your baby is just 7 months. He must need your time and concern. At least wait for the one year or maybe a few months more. Or you might also seek doctors advice. He would provide you with the best one possible. Just have some patience and things would surely turn out to be good. Have a good life.

Heyy JESSICA. Congrats on your first child btw! I'm glad to hear. Well, yes! You should wait a little more as per my suggestion. Rest is you know better about your circumstances. Yeah! I think waiting for a period of two years would be fine. Wish you all the best! My sister has 3 children all with a gap of 2 to 3 years. They are fine. Can't have mine yet! but, if my surrogacy works out this year. I will have another after two years. xoxo Wish you all the best!

Hey there, hope you are doing good. Honey, you are still young. I dont think you will face problem in TTC the second baby. Why do you wanna hurry then? Your baby is still very young. Let her be of at least 2 years. It will give you some time to get healthy too. I hope you decide on whats best for you.

Hey Jessica. How are you doing? Congratulation on your baby. Well, its good to have another baby. I think you should wait for some time. Because it will be difficult for you to look after two kids at the same time. It will result in neglecting of one child and this is not a good thing at all. So my dear wait for some time until your 7 months become a bit smarter. Hope so you got my point.

Heyyy there! Congrats on your pregnancy! Yeah! Well, I'd prefer you to have a gap of minimum two years. Yes! That's what I think it should be. Otherwise, you can make a decision with your husband.

Hello there, I just wish you are fine. Beloved, you are still very young. I don’t think there could be any problem for you to conceive a child. I think you’d give some time to your child. Don’t be so hurry and wait for at least two years. Your body will also get normal in such time period. I’m sure you’ll opt the best option for you.

Hey, I am good, I hope so, are you. You are still very young so I don't think this should be a problem. You can even wait longer. Your kid is only 7 months old. I think you should wait till the baby gets to at least 1.5 years old. You can always consult your doctor for advice. When I got confused about which treatment to go for. I consulted my doctors. Since they are professionals and have seen and come across such issues. Other than that if you think now is the right time then go for it. Was it a natural pregnancy or you had to use a fertility treatment? I am sure you will have to look into more things if it was a treatment. The financial constraints etc. I hope you are able to make a decision. Best of luck. Do keep us updated.

Hi, congratulations on your first baby. I am glad to read your post. Yes, you can definitely have another baby. If first was conceived without an issue. The second will also be easy for you. You lucky to have children. Most of the couple are living without children. I wish you a very good luck.

It is the cutest thing that can happen to any mom. It is great to become a mom. You have 7 months old baby. Although your first one is young but still it is no big deal in getting pregnant. The most important thing is your health. If you feel healthy and fit then there is no harm in getting pregnant. I wish you all the best.

First of all congratulations on having a baby. It's a blessing for you. Second I think you should wait. Spend your time with the first one. When he becomes 3-4 year's old then you should think about the second one. I wish you a great future ahead.

I believe everything is happening great with you. Love, you are still very young. So, you won't face any problem with TTC. I'm not in favor of having another time. Your baby is still very young. You'd give your time to him. In this time, your body will be able to conceive a child easily. Wishing you best of luck!

Hey Jessica. How are you doing? Hope so you are doing fine. Well glad that you had a baby. Dear, I think you should wait for some time before conceiving another child. Because your first baby is too young so it will be difficult for you to look after in your pregnancy. Also, your boy needs some more rest and needs to come back to normal position. Before making any decision also consult with a doctor.

No, you should go for it. There is a good clinic in Europe. They are best in dealing with surrogacy. You must go for surrogacy. You have taken the right decision. Congratulations on your first baby. I wish you a good luck for the second one.

Jessica, you're only going to be ready, when you feel ready! Nobody can do that for you. If you think, it's the right time, then trust me, it IS the right time! Congratulations to you on the first one. Give the baby my love! Good luck with your plans. I hope everything works out positively! You can do this.

Hi. Hope you are well. Yes, I think it's too early. But that's just what I think. You are only 31 right now. You have plenty of time ahead of you to have another baby. You first child is only 7 months old right now. He needs all your attention right now. You can easily wait a couple of years to have another one. I saw a post of this lady who was 42 years old at that time. She had her first child through surrogacy. She was going to have her second one through surrogacy too. But even she agreed that it was too early for her since her first one was only 9 months old at the time. So she decided to wait. You can consider that too. Hope this was helpful.

I hope you're doing well. 31 is a relatively young age. You don't have to worry about age being against you. You had your baby only 7 months ago. I'd suggest you stay busy with the first one! Babies need a lot of attention and care, as you might have realized, now. If you want another and you feel ready then you should go for it. However, it would be advised to maybe wait at least a year. This way you don't have to raise two toddlers, together. The first one will be slightly older as well. I'd personally suggest waiting a couple of years. If you feel good, then go for it after a couple of months! There's no reason, not to! Good luck to you. You're only ready if you feel ready, yourself! Love and support for you. x

Hey, Jess. I hope you're doing okay. Congratulations, first of all! This is really good news. I'm very happy for you. Give my love to the young one. You must be absolutely thrilled. I can understand your decision to go for a second. It would be a brilliant idea. Look, you're only ready if you think you are. No one will tell you that it's an ideal time. You'll know it is. If you feel like it, then go for it! They will examine you medically, and let you know if everything is good. Good luck to you! Here's to hoping this experience is as good as the first one.

Congratulations to you, Jessica. This is amazing news! I'm glad you decided to share it with us. As for your question, I think there are a lot of ways to look at it. At the end of the day, it's your decision. If you think you can manage, then you should do it. 31 is a relatively young age. You don't have to worry about age being against you. I have a different viewpoint, though. I don't think I would rush into it. I believe it's important to wait until the first one is old enough. However, everyone has a different belief. Good luck to you. If you decide to go through with it, let me know! I'd love to be of any help. Sending you lots of prayers and baby dust.

Hey, I hope you are well. Congratulations on your first baby. I hope he is doing alright. It is never too late. I think you should start the process. It is going to take some while. Until then this one will be old enough to be handled. Just make sure to visit the right doctor for the process. Often times we ignore this most important factor. Researching on this subject matter is really important. Good luck to you. Sending baby dust your way. I hope things work out in your favor. Do keep us updated.
