Hi ladies. DH and I want to have 3-5 children and want them to be close in age. I have already talked to my Dr about it and he said it's best to wait a year in between each child, but I personally don't want to wait that long. I've read a few things online, this being one of them:
"The risk of preterm birth when there is less than six months between pregnancies is 41%, and lower between six and 12 months. In general, your body needs 12 months to recover from the previous pregnancy and birth. Specifically, your pelvic floor remains weak right after birth. There is an increased risk for female organ prolapse, where the uterus, bladder and/or rectum herniate or bulge into the vaginal canal, if there is not enough time between pregnancies for your body to completely heal."
So that scares me a lot. We already had a 2nd tri miscarriage while TTC DS and I do not want to imagine going through any of what's mentioned above..
Any advice, words of wisdom, or stories (sad or happy) is very appreciated. TIA
