Is anyone thinking of having more children? what does your spouse/so think? How about family and friends? do they think you're crazy for having as many as you do?

I hadn't read this post and yesterday I asked a similar question in my post which was likely too lengthly;(I am a talker) however,... yes we are very much wanting more children and are using clomid treatment right now. My spouse is a little nervous because we are busy already but he loves the idea of a large family too.
I wouldn't dream of telling my parents as I know they will be 100% unsupportive. They thought we were crazy to have a 3rd. When I was younger I had an illness that caused me to be very dependant and I suppose my parents are overprotective of me. I think they have never been able to see me as normal and in perfect health. Anyways they would be shocked to learn when I am pregnant and I can only imagine what they'll think or say if we have another set of twins. I am thinking about ways to keep distant from them for a bit just so I don't have to be around the negativity when this is joyful and exciting for me. Sounds kind of funny but I also wonder if there is an impact to a child in the womb when people are questioning whether or not this child acceptable & or will be welcomed. My friends,... they'd be happy for me,... maybe think I'm a bit loopy but they'd be supportive. I love kids and I would love so much to have a large family. We have 3.5 year old b/g twins and a 19 month old boy.

Welcome to the group Shannon! you're right I've heard all those comments too, but my kids say they think the idea of being in a family with only one or two kids is only appealing when their mad at their siblings, normally they all love having a large family. :)
I would love to have more, but I'm not sure if healthwise I will be able to have them due to complications from my last c-section. However I would be open to adoption and foster kids sometime down the line too.

Everyone keeps asking if we are finishing now. I have three kids aged 7 to 14 months and am 30 weeks pregnant with my fourth. The last one I got pregnant whilst I was on the pill and we were just about to talk about maybe having another child when I found out I was pregnant. After this one is born we are going to have to think about different contraception but I am not sure I really want anything as permanent as my tubes tied and my husband can't have an operation really as he has a problem with his blood so an operation would be too risky.
At the moment 4 kids is enough, but I am only 32 so who knows what I may say in the future!

I gotta pop this one out first but I have people ask me all the time if I'm going to get my tubes tied and honestly while I don't plan on having another, tubal ligation is just too permanent for me. I figure God won't give me anymore than I can handle =)

I have three so far, we would like 2-3 more.

People already think Im crazy for having 2 of the 3 so close together, but Im sure they will think Im crazy for wanting and eventually having 5 or 6 little ones! I think its wonderful to have a big family and hope that its not as insane as I imagine its going to be lol...Im sure it will be tho :)

yeah, we faced the possibility of doctors saying that I could no longer have children during my last pregnancy. I have an irritable uterus and was on bedrest for 11 weeks; Baby was born at 37 weeks due to having little to no amniotic fluid in there. That was also my 4th c-section so the dr was worried that my uterus would be too scarred to survive another pregnancy. However, when the dr's went in there for the birth, everything looked surprisingly really good! DH and I said not to tie my tubes b/c we felt it was the Lord answering our prayers that we didn't have to go to that extreme just yet. As of right now, DH and I have decided to start trying again this month for number 6, and since that will end up being c-section number 5, he/she will probably be the last.

That's actually why we're trying, we'd like them all to grow up together.

I am unable to have more kids.(By my choice though) The seven we have is plenty enough for us. Alot of people do think that we are crazy for having so many kids but they are all a blessing and since none of them were planned I know there are all meant to be. I would love to have a bunch more but sometimes we have to be realistic in what we can finacially take care of. You have to look at all areas of your life. I can honestly say that family is never a dull moment. Loving my large family
