Is your family pressuring you to have children or more children? Or are they ok with you waiting?

They were pressuring me a lot, especially my dad. They have eased up on that now though.

My mom has passed, my step-dad and I just started out relationship back up so I have no clue. My sister probably thinks we shouldn't have more kids. They don't "approve" of our lifestyle b/c we don't do the whole "keeping up with the Jones'" thing.

Our families probably think we should stop but idk. Maybe not so much stop as they want us to wait.

My dad is so disgusted by the world that he says "I wouldn't bring a child into this world." says it all the time...my mom thinks waiting is better. My sister is terrified for me to have another baby given my previous complications. I don't get any pressure from anyone but my SO. haha But I just brush that off...I move at my own pace anyhow, but I'm ready as soon as it's healthy for me to go ahead and try again I definitely need to have at least one more! My daughter is such a selfish little thing right now...I don't want that quality to linger any longer than it has to!! lol

My parents are far from pressuring us. They were not happy the 1st time I got pregnant and they would probably prefer I wait longer in between kids. They didn't start having kids until they were in their 30s and married for 10 years though and that's too long for me!

We haven't received any pressure... but we've gotten subtle hints about being done.

Why do parents and family members feel like they should have a say as to when we should stop having children? I find it incredibly rude, it's not their life, it's not their children and it's none of their business! Gosh!

Many people have dropped hints/casually pressured us to have at least one more...my dad, fil, DH's Godmother, DH's uncle etc. The only person to hardcore pressure us is my sister. I bet though if we're blessed with another it will be the other way around after that and they won't want us to have anymore. My sister has 3 kids and 3 step kids and people are always up in her business telling her to not have anymore. I think it is SO messed up...people need to mind their own business!

No one knows we are thining of having one more. This will be #6 for me, #3 for DH. I'm sure if/when we do get PG again it wont be a huge surprise to them as they know how much I want a girl with DH.

I think most of our family members are perfectly fine without us having more children lol, or if we wait until we're 35 . We had Dd at 19 so they think we've given them enough surprises for one lifetime.

they go back and forth, mostly it's the "well 4 will be a lot for you to handle when Ethan and Kayley visit"

My grandma thinks she has made the decision for us to be done (simply because she obviously would not have had her 5 children if she could have done something about it!). My mom and dad however, are constantly nagging us about "the next one", thinking that since they had 4 we should strive for that as well. My oldest sister also weirdly enjoys my being pregnant and asks when we are going to have another.

So, I get pressure from both sides! It''s pretty annoying.

I get we should be done all the time. Which is part of the reasonsoning we have not announced our surprise yet. I know it's going to be met with a lot of flack.

People ask all the time! Especially my family. We've been together for over 9 years, married for 4, own our own home...to everyone the "next" step is to get down to business.

My side asks all the time but mostly they want us to get married! My grandparents are so old and they want to see us get married and me have a baby. We live with his family and they haven't said anything.
