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.

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 :(
