I have two little girls 25 mo and 10 mo and I'm 6 weeks pregnant with my third. My husband and I are totally thrilled, but I am super tired of people who think we are crzy or stupid. The ones that really get to me are the people that ask me if I am sad or angry about being pregnant again. What is their problem?

People just don't know how to keep their opinion to themselves, thinking everyone else's buisness is theirs. The stares, comments, remarks about this and that is complete b.s. Who cares if someone has 1, 2 or 10 kids and who cares if they are 9 months apart or 10, 11, 12. Am I sad, or angry? who in their right minds asks that. I was THRILLED to hear I was expecting all 3 times. My oldest is 2, my youngest in 1 and im due in 4 months with my first son. YES to all I am VERY happy. Why wouldn't I be? I knew what I was getting myself into. If I didn't want a baby than I would have prevented it. Children are a blessing. If you take care of your kids, love them, and provide than it aint no one's buisness.

More....and why do ppl think if you have more than the 2.1 children (avg.) you need to go on birth control. As if having children is an awful thing! It is the highest calling! :)

I know how you feel. I personally think it is neat that you have them so close, esp the 10mo. and the new pregnancy! Congrats and don't let anyone steal your joy. I know these comments sting sometimes. Mine are 7, 6 in Sept. 4 today, and 3 in Sept, 8 1/2 mo. and I am 3 1/2 mo pregnant. I get the "boy you have your hands full" all the time. It doesn't bother me too much. Find ppl who are supportive of you and befriend those, and who will really care in a few years or when they are grown up. In the whole big scheme of things it doesn't matter. You and your husband must be wonderful parents. If you are feeling called to have a lg family and are doing right by them, then that is your calling. Ppl somehow think it is their business to tell you how many children you should have. It is such a personal issue.......enjoy!!!!

Yeah I know what you mean. I just had my 4th baby a girl after 3 boys. They are all 5 years and younger, and people always ask are they all mine, and look at me with crazy looks. Or now people always say... so I guess your done now. I'm not done and really it is no ones business.

I completely understand and can relate. I have a girl that just turned 5, a two year old boy, 1 year old boy and a 4 month old little girl. No matter where we go we get comments. Some of them are down right rude. People need to mind their own business.

People will always make your business their business. I have 3 kids, and so many people tell me not to stop there, because of reason x, y, z. Well, folks, I got my tubes tied, so it's not happening! But I don't bother telling them that and usually just smile and nod...

I know, some people can be so insensitive sometimes. I have a 3 & 2 yr old boys. If I had a nickel for everytime someone said " I bet they keep you busy", I'd be rich. I like that they are close in age.

I think your situation is cool. Tell everyone that you wanted it this way and your very happy.
