When to Have a Second Baby

Sometimes I think I am truly nuts. I'm beginning to think about having baby number two. Why is it crazy? My daughter at 21 months old is really quite a handful. And truthfully I've had stability problems for the last year. I've suffered several bad depressions and a couple small hypomanic periods.

I've always wanted at least two and was thinking that I should be completely stable for a year before I have a second baby, but now I'm thinking if I have to go through all the turmoil, maybe now is the time.

And for me surprisingly enough pregnancy was easy mentally. In fact easier than the last year has been. Of course because I had hyperemesis pregnancy was not easy. I was sick the whole time ... and I mean really I threw up the night before my daughter was born because I took my zofran late.

Anyway, what do you all think about the timing?
