I'm catholic so this is not all that unheard of but...I met a lady today with six boys, twin girls, and pregnant with her NINTH! Omg I would die. She looked tired. I asked her how old the twins were she goes "uh I don't know...17 or 18 months I guess" lmao. How do you even function??? I'll tell you- the people in my co-op do not get my morning sickness or they sure as heck wouldn't be having baby after baby after baby. Lol

No way not me ;-) I know a woman that has 6 all under the age of 8 I can't imagine having that many kids that close.I just don't think I could emotionally do it if you can do it then you are better than me . and I like quality time with all my kids that many kids I know I could not do it.

I have a friend who met on a forum. She has 10! No twins. But spread nicely, oldest is 18, youngest almost two I think. They're not catholic.
She homeschooled them all at one point. She's amazing. She does these tough muddier races. Her and husband have date nights, and go for bike rides together.

No thank you! We are going to (hopefully) be a 1 child family.

My mom is the 8th of 14. I am the youngest of 6. I couldn't do that many, but I bet she is super exhausted all the time.

There are a lot of women in my co-op with like 5 or 6 and being the youngest of five (this baby is the 22nd grandchild), that seems like a normal sized family to me. Not huge, not tiny. Manageable. Anything over 6 would qualify as a large family- my parents were each one of 10 and I have something like 60 first cousins with both sides combined and I've lost count of the 1st once removed's/second cousins etc lol.

And, I'm all for big families- that just shocked me lol because her twins are so young. I can't even think of getting pregnant before my kids are 2 and she had to be 6 months (unless she just popped really early- hard to say since I'm not showing in most clothes). I think as long as you can care for your kids, have as many as you can! For me? I am already dreading going through this again even though I've pretty much decided I want another one (I know why am I thinking of this right now?.

Oops.. My great grand mother have 10 child and we joke around that because of you we have so many members in family. She died few years back... But each of her children (my grand mother and her sister and brother) have at least 2-3 child. So totally, because of her we are now 102 including spouses ..
But after 3rd generation, everyone wants 1 kid only. I do prefer 2 because they will understand sharing in early stages.. This is my first baby and dont know how my health goes after delivery.. and then we can think of second. With only one pregnancy I am tired..I wonder how these ladies have managed these many children. hats off to her and her health...

This made me laugh! I got pregnant (unintentionally!) when Emmett was 2.5 months old. He was not exactly an easy newborn either......it was and still is exhausting!!

This I can understand with one- I couldn't do it because of my never ending nausea..I actually have panic attacks after I give birth about getting pregnant again. Lol I love my babies and I want to enjoy them...being sick even now with my baby 2 is hard :/
