I've lurked here lots and maybe posted a bit, but I guess now it is really official... We are a large family!
I'm expecting #5 in June
I've been reading through the how to tell people thread. Honestly, I'm totally freaked out at the thought of telling people. We got lots of comments on #4 (not from family, more just acquaintances), and I *know* it will be worse this time.... and I'm not sure how my family will react.
We've always told people we were pregnant pretty much right away, but this time I want to put it off as long as possible and i hate that I feel that way, especially since this baby was planned and is very much wanted in our family.
Anyways, I appreciate all the support that is found on this board. I'm sure I'll be popping in here more often!
congrats and welcome! How old are your other kiddos?

I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.
Thanks! My other kids are 6, 5, 3, and 16 months
Congrats!!! Just try and focus on the fact that you and your immediate family are happy and excited. Everyone else's opinion are their own problem!

Congratulations! Well, whether they're happy for you or not is pretty irrelevant - you are happy, your DH is happy, your kids will be happy, your baby will be happy and well loved and we're all happy for you. And anyone who matters in your life will be happy for you, even if they do seem shocked when you first tell them!
