Hello everyone,... I am indeed wanting to have more children. Currently I have 3 year old boy/girl twins (Ethan and Jane) and a 19 month old boy (Carter). My husband and I are trying for more; however,... I wish that when that time comes that we could share it with our family. My mom has made comments like "you better be all done now" & my dad has said "you're not having any more are you!!!! You don't want anymore. Be thankful for the healthy kids you have already!!!"
I think it's sad that I am strategizing how to avoid seeing them once I am pregnant just to avoid the criticism and unsupportive spirit for as long as I can. I don't want to feel the need to justify our actions/choices to them who don't support or even help out. They live an hour away but we do tend to connect every 4 to 8 weeks. We are middle class folk so finances are fine and we have a decent size house. I wonder sometimes because they've lived life longer,... if they look at us with tired eyes maybe?? Either way, I wish they could be happy for us because this is the family we desire.
I am using Clomid treatment because of PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) and the chances of me having twins again are great and I relish the idea. It would be super fantastic to have another set of twins. My first experience was amazing. Perfect pregnancy and got to bring them home within 12 hours and I was home within 3 hours of giving birth to my 3rd. I have shared with a couple people that I was thinking about having more children and they looked at me cross eyed. I keep thinking,... my husband is a great dad and provider and I think I am a pretty cool mom. I have my mommy moments for sure where I have my little breakdowns but the family far outweighs any of that stuff. Just thought I would share some of what's going on in my head.
Are there any similar stories out there.
