So me and HD have desided to get pg with # 6 and the more my family says stuff to me the more I wonder if I should not. I have always wanted a big family the only thing is I had my first when I was 15 so he is almost 15 now and everyone is asking me why I am wanting another one,..........I just want to be mean and tell them its none of ther bizzz what I want and I am the one who is raising them,...LOL but I cant be mean so I have Nicholas 14 Zachary 12 Mackenzie 9 Kaydn 5 and Lillyin 1 am I crazy for wanting another one??? It really dose not matter what anyone say's Because we are going to have #6 and i'm sure it will be our last but still... What is a nice way to tell my family to mind their own bizz?
lol simply that. Just tell them it is none of their business. They aren't the ones raising them or providing for them. If they can't handle your honesty and your lifestyle then they really aren't there for you, I think.
Welcome to the boards and I hope you get your BFP ASAP!!
I am going through the exact same thing right now with my family and our decision to ttc#4, his second my 4th. But I have been prepping them for going on 3 months now.. they are getting better with it as time goes by. The fact is that once that adorable baby gets here your family will forget all about being negative about it. Be strong girl! That's what I am doing. I hope you get your BFP soon! LOTS of baby dust to you
I had a conversation with my Stepmother last night. Out of the blue she says "you're not going to have any more kids are you" I said who knows what the Lord has in store. I am certainly not against it. She went on to tell me I am old, my bladder has dropped, remember when Cassie was soooo sick , I'm unorganized etc. I basically told her that I really don't care what anyone thinks. I love my family and we are the ones raising them and caring for them.. i told them if it was all about being able to pay for college.. etc. We would have no children and I wouldn't have been born for that matter. Then I remind them about the beautiful children I have. Would they rather that Abby and Cooper were never born.. etc. I am tired of worrying about anyone else. My family loves me, but they can be inconsiderate. However, its the strangers that offer comments that I find amazing. Really who gave them the right to decide how many kids I can have.... So, my advice is to l"ovingly tell them that having a large family is a gift that you love. Children are a blessing and never a burden. Thank you for your concern. I hope you can be happy for us and our family." When we told our inlaws about #5 they didn't respond or talk about it for months... I was so hurt. But now, my MIL says, she will never be surprised again and although she clearly dissapproves, they love all of our kids and will never respond that way again.
My mom is 100% supportive, as our my local family of aunts and cousins.. that is helpful.
Oh yeah, and as you can tell by my sig. I am expecting #8. I didn't divulge that info on the phone
