So, I was doing a quick internet search to what the "ideal" spacing is between children.

Has anyone's doctor gave a recommendation for when your body should be ready for another pregnancy?

No, my doctor didn't say anything about when it would be optimal timing to try for another, but we didn't have any trouble conceiving Ry, so she probably didn't think it was something we needed to worry about.

What were your family plans before pregnancy?

In terms of the waiting until the kid is at least a year thing . . .

Honestly I could care less about letting my body recover.

"If James is a year old and I'm still waiting on AF, I will probably lose my patience with "God's plan" and try to get AF to come back by trying to night-wean or use Vitex."

I'm still waiting on AF, Adrienne - at 13 months PP!!

I should clarify... I'm not actually *waiting on* AF -- I LOVE that she is not here and I am in no hurry for her return!!!

Has anyone's doctor gave a recommendation for when your body should be ready for another pregnancy? My Midwife (and my mom, who is also a midwife) recommends the same thing you found online, 18-24+ months.

I've read many things that waiting 18-24 months for conception is ideal for the mother's body, especially if prior baby was born with a c section.
