Yes and yes, but : Do not panic, just had a successful pregnancy, you could give it time. If no history of stress or mood issues, you may be fine with 2 babies in diapers. Historically the average span has been 4 yrs, u can only carry 1 at a time. Some have babies at close intervals and get overwhelmed. Don't b in a rush, consider 6 months, then start. It won't inc. Risk much but will save u a lot of stress.Gdluc.
