heehee I am currently pregnant with number four and as I already have three boys, I am thoroughly fed up with being asked 'were you trying for a girl?' and 'are you hoping this is a girl?' and 'if it is another boy will you try for a girl?' lol. Just take a deep breath and ignore the lot of them! :0)
Well i've just found out today im expecting my 3rd and can hear it all now when my friends and family find out. I will have such a big age gap with my other 2 they will be 10 and 11yrs and i know ppl will also say to me am i mad going back to all that again babies crying sleepness nights etc. But who cares it's our decision and that makes us happy so be it.
i'm so glad i'm not the only one experiencing negativity from other people! Every single person we have told we are expecting our 3rd baby has asked us if it was planned! one person even asked me why two children wasnt enough. As for the "are you hoping for a boy this time?" comments, well #i dont know how many more people could ask me the same predictable question! aaaarrrrrgh!
I am new here and just going to jump in here if you dont mind! LOL
I am 40 (since February 27th) I have 8 live births along with four miscarriages at 4 months. My children are from 22,20,17,14,10,8,7,and 4 and I believe I am pregnant now with number 9!! Had two faint positives at 11 dpo and 13 dpo, did a blood test day af was supposed to arrive and came back inconclusive, I was told to come back after 2 days and repeat, Im not sure and a bit afraid of a weak pregnancy or miscarraiage, but am praying it will come positive and healthy. I have had sore boobs and frequent urination since 7 dpo and as of today I am 1 day late, and cervix is high closed and soft, so lady at lab says she believes Im pregnant but numbers have to be higher for her to confirm it???? I thought presence of hcg meant pregnant regardless??
Anyways, noone put food on your table or raises your children or wakes in the night so, what others think it is not important!! As long as you and hubby agree and are happy, this is what matters and congrats to all of you!!
I too have been called mad!! Im 5 weeks pregnant with my 5th. I have 2 DD 14 and 5 and 2 DS 11 and 3. Im dreading the comments when it becomes public knowledge, but at the end of the day its my body and my decision!
Its so nice to see other large families on here, and nice to know there is somewhere I can go for a rant! Lol. x
