We've decided

to try for one more baby Smile Wasn't sure if DH would go for it or not but he says he's up for one more (no pun intended!). I secretly would love twins but I think DH would pass out! AF is due in about 12 days and then we will start trying. I'm excited but anxious too. I'm nervous about people's reactions. They already think we're crazy for having 5. I've only told a couple of people our plans. I'm not telling my family. They get a little less excited each pregnancy. Just wish they'd be as excited as we are, ya know?

That's great, Belinda! I think big families are awesome!

I'm sorry about your family and friends not being so supportive. I kind of understand how you feel, kind of. People don't even know I'm pregnant yet, but they know we want more than 2 kids and most everyone calls us crazy for even wanting a third.

Thanks ladies! It's nice to hear something positive Smile I'm going to concentrate on our excitement and try not to think about others reactions. Can't wait to post a BFP!

That's so great! and we got lots of crazy stares at our fourth, but I have learned to just let it go. I hope you have a BFP before you know it!

Congrats! After sharing a march 08 and a May 10 BB with you I am looking forward to being a spectator for your next pregnancy Smile Your family is beautiful and I firmly believe that the only people who should have opinions on family size are the Mother and Father who do the hard and wonderful work of raising these little people! 6 boys would be awesome (a BB team and a sub, of course) and a family of 5 boys with one lucky little lady bringing up the rear would be wonderful as well! Enjoy the ride, so to speak Wink

Oh my!! how exciting!!!

I totally understand what you mean about people thinking you are crazy. People think the same about us too. I only have 3.. and people thing we are nuts. I dread even mentioning the thought that we might not be done.. because family act like we are insane. The whole 'getting less excited with each baby' I TOTALLY GET.

Anyway- Congratulations to you and I can't wait to hear your big news!

Can I just say that I don't get why people are so weird about this??? I even had a family friend say to me once when I mentioned having three or four, "Why on Earth would you want to do that!?!?" (and she has three kids!) I mean, you have to be a responsible parent, and be sure you can provide emotionally and physically for as many kids as you want, but... why are people so crazy about it? I suppose it is the ultimate projecting ones own feelings etc on someone else.

Anyway... I just want to throw out one more word of support. I think big families are great! And small families are great. HAPPY FAMILIES are wonderful! Personally though, the thought of as many kids as you have makes me squeal with delight (even when I've had the kind of day with Beni that I had yesterday...there is a bigger picture in sight!). Smile

Woo Hoo!!! Yay for you!!! I'm so glad you dropped in, too - I often thing about you!

Are you hoping for that illusive little girl???? I know you'd be happy no matter what (and you probably have a ton of boy stuff) but wouldn't it just be crazy if you did have a girlie ??

Ooooo, I'm so excited for you!!! I cannot wait to stalk you Smile

That's great news! I've always wanted a big family. I'm lucky I got my DH to go for a 2nd. I hope you get a girl!

Belinda, that's wonderful news! I know all too well the waning support of family each time a new pregnancy is announced. Even when they keep their feelings to themselves, you can see it in their eyes that they think you're insane. I hope the best for you. Come on, BFP, come quickly Biggrin

Thanks for the support ladies! Mara- I don't get it either. It's not like we are having more kids and then asking someone else to care for them. Like you said, happy families are great, no matter the size! I would love to have a little girl (and 4 of the 5 boys REALLY want a sister!) but another boys would be great too. I admit there are times when I would love to have another female in the house that understands girly things! And I'm dying to buy a baby doll Wink I actually had a dream last night that we had another boy and even in the dream I was happy. I told DH I don't want to find out the sex this time. We've done it both ways and finding out was neat but I love being surprised at the birth! I just can't wait to be pregnant again and experience all the excitement of it Smile
