Trying to conceive a baby is always a big and exciting step. You will have even more factors to consider if you already have a child. You may, for instance, wonder how pregnancy will combine with mothering a child, or worry about the financial impact of a new baby on the family. Another thing on your mind may be the ideal age gap between siblings.
For many couples, just getting to the decision to conceive a second baby is tricky! Every age difference has its own set of pros and cons, and you may still be recovering from your first pregnancy, or wondering how to get pregnant while breastfeeding (which is possible, but there are a few things you need to know about nursing and trying to conceive). Perhaps, getting your partner on board for another baby is hard. Or perhaps, you are the one who is not convinced you want to have another little one?
Once you have made the choice to try for another baby, finding the time to track your ovulation, or even be intimate together, may be a struggle. And, while it is easy to assume that getting pregnant a second time won't be hard if it was easy the first time round, that is not always the case. You may be older this time, or something else may be going on.
Whatever the case, we wish you luck in trying to conceive a second baby! Even though you are already a seasoned mother, and you have probably got experience with the trying to conceive part of having a baby, you may like to read up about the process and some tips to increase your chances of getting a positive pregnancy test soon in our article, How to get pregnant?
