I remember you from last time. My dd is 14 months and we are planning to ttc in a few months - hoping for something around 2 1/2 year gap.
Thankfully I did not have any of the issues that you had during pregnancy but we do have the same issues with a 2 bedroom house, diy and finances in general.
Personally, I think that with your obvious determination to give your ds the love & attention that he requires, you will makesure that you will succeed in doing so regardless of when you have another baby. The fact that this is a consideration in your decision only goes to show how much you are determined.
There are pros and cons of both. Financially, if you wait until you've decorated or moved etc then it may be another 5 years before you have another baby because priorities keep changing. Whereas if you have a baby sooner, the diy will get done eventually but in smaller doses and you will already have your new baby.
With regards to the icp, although it might be likely you have it again, you cannot know for sure and you cannot know the extent, whether it be better or worse.
You and your dh can only be the ones to decide but I would say go for it and you will deal with whatever happens as it happens.
Good luck and sorry for waffling!
