Grrr I tried posting to this but I got a network timeout.

A former friend has 8 kids and a really good friend of mine has 5. Besides that, no one else has more kids than me.

Gobs! I have friends with #8 on the way, 11 (6 through adoption, but they count), 8 (5 by adoption), and the people I bought the truck from had #9 and 10 a couple months before. There are also many people with 6 or 7. 2 of my closest friends have 6. My large family mentors have 7 and 9. Another acquaintance has 10. When I was pg with #5 she asked how I was feeling. I said "I am not going to get any sympathy, am I?" She said no. So I said "Fine, I am perfectly fine!" Another friend has 8. I posted a link of a news article written about her. She is beautiful, thin, cheerful. She runs though and is a vegetarian. I always said I am not thin like her because I don't have 8. Another friend had her 10th when I had my 6th. Her oldest is having his first soon, so she will also be a grandma! She is only 41, so she could likely have more.

So, yes, lots. You all should move here!

I know 2 families who have 5, one expecting their 5th and one with 6. Four is fairly common around here though.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Not many. When I was growing up my next door neighbors had 6 kids. My cousins all had fairly large families. They all have at least 4 kids (3 of my cousins had 4 kids each, one had 5, and one had 6). I don't see them very often though and most of their kids are grown now and starting families of their own. My DH's grandma had 8 kids, and DH's other grandma had 6 kids so I guess big families run in Dh's family.

I come from a small family with just 2 siblings (except one died before I was born), and DH grew up with only one sibling as well.

I don't know anyone close to me with more than 2 or 3 kids though
