Confession/ Intro

I must confess... I've been stalking the Oct board since before there were any bfp's...
I'm Tina (34y), due Sept. 29th. I have 1 daughter (15y), and 4 boys (12, 9, 7, 5y) with my ex. My fiance', Jason, has 4 girls (18, 16, 15, 14y), and one son (11y) with his. This little one will be our first together.
I love reading all the posts over here because, 1) I'm so far at the end of Sept, I feel like I'm going through things more at the time of most of you over here than the Sept. ladies. 2) This board is way more lively!
I keep reading and wanting to join on the conversations, but then I keep thinking I'll have to announce myself as a "lurker" every time, so I just don't post. After doing this SEVERAL times, I've decided to just introduce myself, and then I won't feel like a creeper when I want to post, lol.

Welcome! I see that you're from Minnesota. We have three ladies on here from Iowa so that's kind of fun. Have you told your kids yet? You're going to have so many helpers. Biggrin

Welcome! Sounds like you've got a busy household! I can't believe there's actually people around my area and more than one at that!

The more the merrier!! With DS I was due Aug 27th so I mostly lurked on the Sept board- it was a good thing too because he didn't come til Sept 12th!!! I like to lurk on the board ahead/board behind to see what's coming and what just passed :):) It's fun!!!

Hi! Welcome. You're welcome here. Also, you should check out the large families board. I think you may qualify for that Wink

Welcome! As everyone said, the more the merrier! Biggrin I recognize you because I lurk on Sept occasionally (Due Oct. 1) and I remember your DYSAL thread because it was a few days before mine lol.

Wow... you've got your own Super-Brady Bunch! I guess there's hope for me - I was worried about the challenges of finding a guy as a single mom of one.... you not only found a guy with 5 kids, but he has practically a matching set! Hilarious and so cool.

Love the pic.

We had to tell them right away, because Jason was so excited, he kept dropping hints! I kept hushing him, but that wasn't going to last, lol. I made a slide show with the song 'With Arms Wide Open' by Creed it was all pics of us and the kids, at the end was a pic of the positive test laying on a calender with a heart around 9/29. We recorded them watching it. It was pretty cool seeing the older kids figure it out and slowly the younger boys caught on.

Busy is an understatement, lol. My 5 kids, and J's son all live with us full time, so it IS crazy with all these boys so close in age! I remember pg.org used to have boards for each state. It was cool to be able to connect with locals, but I think most of those boards were pretty dead.

Wow! Were you miserable being that pregnant? I have such a love/hate relationship with the last couple weeks, and the nearest I've come to a due date was 39 weeks!

I was worried about that too. In fact my ex used to threaten me with, "you'll never find anyone to love you, because you have MY 5 kids"... But there came a time where I would've rather been alone then to be with him. And now I've found someone amazing who not only loves me, but loves all 5 of my kids like his own!
