Mother of 6 and Pregnant

[deleted account] ( 10 moms have responded )

Ok, i just found out my husband and I are expecting baby number 7. I have a 11 month old and a 2 year old right now. Im not excited at all about this and need a support group of encouragement. Not that husband dont encourage me but Im bummed because I vowed that our son was the last child in 2013. Are any mothers with 7 kids out there?

Hi there!

I am a mother of 6, and I can understand the birth control side of things, too. When I say mother of 6, 3 of them are my step children, but we have primary custody and their mother is out of state. One is my much younger brother who I have guardianship of, and the other two are mine. They are ages 14, 10, 8, 6, almost 4, and almost 1. They are all boys except my youngest who is a girl.

I also know what you mean about getting pregnant when you didn't plan. Neither of my kids were planned, I was the 1% with birth control both times. :)

Where are you from/where do you live? And what kind of support are you looking for? I just started my kids in an online Charter school from home mainly, and I am feeling in need of support, too. I also just moved to a new area a few months ago. Let's be support for each other.

Email me if you want to, or reply on here. I am still learning how to use this page and dont know a lot about it. adex312@gmail.com is my email. :-)

". Im not excited at all about this"
" I vowed that our son was the last child in 2013."

I think that pretty much sums up that you didn't want any more children, but now that you are pregnant you are making the best out of an unplanned situation. Not quite sure how else anyone can read that.

I also merely suggested you look at more PERMANENT birth control (like tubes tied and burned, vasectomy, etc, not failed birth control pills or shots). Just a bit of advice for peace of mind in the future. If you think that is rude, then whatever.....

Michelle... All of my kids are for my husband... And all are loved just as i will love this child. Im still trying to read where do anyone see that i said i didnt want this child. I said i am not excited. I also was on the shot and was able to get pregnant at the same time. After that it was the pills and my son came in 2013. So call me crazy but its not effective for me. Guess im that 1%

LOL I didnt say that I didnt want anymore. Where did any of you read that I didnt want anymore. I simply said that I vowed my son was the last child. I never said i didnt want this baby. I said i wasnt excited about it...meaning i havent had that thrill of being pregnant yet. I came to this forum because i read in other places on the forum where there were women actually supporting each other through comments with words of encouragement. I know people are entitled to there own opinions. But why ask questions that are simply none of your business. Did I ask to be questioned on why I havent taken birth control? Did you know that I have taken birth control and was still able to have my daughter in 2012? But anyway, you ladies have a wonderful day. I will be removing myself from this circleofmoms because its not worth it to wake up to rude comments especially when someone is looking for words of encouragement. May god bless you all though.

My first thought was the same as Jodi's.
You also can't post in a public forum and decide what answers you want. You are going to get people wondering why you haven't done anything to prevent another pregnancy if you don't want any more.
I do know someone who had 5 children with her husband and left him a few years ago. She then met someone else and had #6, it was unplanned but she is well loved since she has come along. She has since made sure she won't have any more though.

And Chet already offered that. I was simply suggesting that if you feel you have enough children, maybe you should also take some steps to manage that too.

I said a support group of encouragement...not a question and answer forum...so for moms with welcoming comments that has 6 or more kids...im listening!! Thanks in advance.

In addition to Chet's suggestion, if you have decided that you don't want more children, why have you and your husband not taken steps to do something about that? Like a more permanent method of birth control? I would look into this so that you can implement some kind of plan after having this one.
