hi! im valarie..mama to only 2 right now. but im hoping for lots more.

dh and i have discussed having 3 or 4 but i honestly would love like 6 or even more. i have always wanted a houseful! but our concerns are cost. i had to keep telling dh that God would provide if he blessed us with another child and YAY we got christian and things have been great and we just bought our first house...so i have alot of faith. but dh, although he is a very good God loving christian man.....he just doesn't get it sometimes. and he worries too much about finances. we're still young though, 23 and 25, so im sure with some times and being able to afford a bigger house, im sure he will come around..but we'll have to see. it's the one thing i can say really hurts me inside as a wife...just not feeling on the same page when it comes to this cause i see children as such a gift. and our paster just said something to us personally the other day about 'have lots of babies! as many as God will bless you with"....and since then i have been thinking about it alot. so that's kind of why i came on here..to see how you all manage and how you afford it and to just get some pointers and tips that i can hopefully use in our marriage to calm the anxieties he has.

btw, hey dawn and kristina!

Hey! it great to see you here

* save from every pay.....even $20 will add up!

* try not to do wasteful spending

* reuse the big items like the crib

I too believe God will provide.pray about it but you knew i would say that

Hello Valarie! Nice to meet you! I have 4...wanting 6! I am a person who believes if it is meant to be...it will be! No matter how hard we try/or not try. We are struggling right now, but I'm not giving up my chances of getting pregnant just because of money. We make it no matter what and will do whatever it takes! Money isn't everything and it's sad that this world thinks that way...love is way more important than money! Just keep that in mind! Best of luck to you!

Just wanted to add....I always thought that it wouldn't cost much to raise children...I was wrong..but you learn to make do with what you have! And boy oh boy...the food they put away when they are teenagers!!!! Thats a really big expense right there! lol But like I said..you make do!!! Tell your hubby you only live once...you want to give love and receive that same unconditional love for as long as you can!

this is exactly what i preached to dh when i wanted to try for christian, our youngest. i said it doesn't matter about money and if we think we have enough, if we love our babies then God will provide the rest.

we tried ONE TIME for christian and..BFP
