I am new to this site, just looking to make friends with mums of large families as I have 8 children. 4 are in their 20's and 4 little ones aged 8yrs(twin girls), 6yrs girl and 4 yrs boy. My older children include a set of twins as well, they are 21yrs.
I work part time on a maternity ward and hope to eventually train to become a midwife.
I would also like to have another baby!!! and am fed up of other peoples sarcastic comments when they realise how many children I have.
Hi! I'm only pg with #2 but wanted to welcome you! My DH is from a large family. He's #1 of 8 and they are a very tight-knit family. We visit his parents at least once a week, along with everyone else and I love the chaos and noise! lol Try to ignore the ignorant comments and check out the large families board!
Mom to 3 beautiful kids
Expecting our newest baby girl, diagnosed with Down Syndrome with Verifi, October 2014!
Ugh I hate when other people think they know whats right for you. I don't see how its anyone's business how many kids you have/want. Welcome to the board!
I was also going to suggest checking out the large family board here on JM.
Hi... Congratulations on your large family. I have a large family also. I am a mom of 6, and currently pregnant with twins. My doctor thinks the smaller twin won't make it though, so I'll probably be at a mom of 7. I'm keeping positive thoughts, so we'll see... I can't stand it when people are so judgemental. I am in the same boat as you. I don't want to tell anybody in my family, because they will probably have their little remarks... People can be so frustrating.
Congrats and welcome!! This baby will only be my second, but my husband and I hope to have at least five children. While his family would probably be fine with that I expect to encounter more than a little judgement from my own side of the family. It's sad because I don't think how many children you have is related to how good of a parent you are. I see a lot of parents of only one or two kids who are raising total brats, while parents of 5+ have wonderful children and close-knit families.
