Social media user Maraena Scarbrough explained that she has a young toddler but wanted to have another child very soon after giving birth, and now, her child is nine-months-old, and she is also three-months pregnant.
Maraena has over 67k followers and 1.1million likes on TikTok and has taken to the video sharing platform to share her situation.
The mum posted a video with the statement: “How people respond any time they find out I’m three months pregnant and have an 8-month-old”, which she paired with the trending TikTok audio that says: “Wow, crazy, you’re crazy girl”.
Maraena explained: “For those of you wondering… yes this was planned.

“We didn’t get on birth control or anything after I had her and started trying around 3.5/4 months postpartum.”
In another clip, Maraena seemed nervous at the thought of giving birth again so soon, as she said: “My daughter turning 9-months-old today and just now realising I give birth again in less than 5 months”.
However, although the mum looked nervous, she confirmed: “So excited to be a girl mum of two beautiful babies here in a couple months!
“I always used to picture this day.”

One TikTok user asked: “Are you nervous about having two babies so young? I have a 3 month old and I kind of want another but so scared it’ll be too much!” to which Maraena responded “I get a little nervous but I’m excited! My mom had 3 under 2 so I figure if she can I can”.
TikTok users were left divided at Maraena’s situation – while some were thrilled for the mum and revealed they too had two young children, others were shocked at why the mum wouldn’t wait and leave a gap in between having children.
One person said: “So happy for you, mama!!!”
Another added: “I have a 15 month old and a 5 month old. It’s definitely hard but it gets manageable as each day passes!”
A third commented: “I had a 2 month old and got pregnant. 11 months apart!”
However, one person stated: “Birth control is available”.
Someone else slammed: “Planning something that puts your baby at risk. Good job momma”.

One asked: “Why not wait?” to which Maraena simply said “Because we didn’t want to”.
