Moms of Many It's June! - Page 6

post #101 of 264
I was actually looking for this thread and I couldn't find it. Yay! Here you all are!

I'm all knocked up again and due in February. I must say, this is number five and I'm panicking a little. OK, a lot.

I just saw the other posts about No. 5. From what I'm gathering, number 5 is rather panic inducing for lots of Moms of Many. Someone told me that even Michelle Duggar freaked out at number five, and that woman is unflappable.

I was actually just thinking this! What is it with number 5? This is 4 AND 5 for us so we are just : : and we need a fainting smiley We thought 4 was totally doable though stretching it but FIVE??!! Who's sick joke is this?!

Number four was our "freakout point". Number five was a simple transition.

Five? Our 4 are more like 2+2 in age and being boys then girls so 5 seems a bit odd both numerically and logistically. Our 7 seater only has six diagonal belts so six of us seems perfect 7 would mean we were back to where we were 18 months ago where we couldn't all go out together cos we only had 5 seats

Frida and I were looking at her baby pictures on the puter yesterday and it made mw think that it wouldn't be too much trouble to have another little one at all....

Congrats to the newly pregnant mamas even if it doesn't feel quite right just yet. and

Hmm. I've freaked once, but it wasn't during a pregnancy actually, it was when I had a newborn, two almost-2-yo., a 7 yo. and a teen. I was thinking I was crazy then.
But as I've said before, I cling to "this too, shall pass" and breathe with my tummy.

to everyone who wants/needs it.

I have been on this thread for a bit a while back but have trouble keeping up. Jannah's 2nd youngest and my youngest (#5) are the same age. We were in the ddc together but I still don't have my cycles back. I am sure some of you understand when I say that it doesn't upset me except for all the nursing it entails.

I enjoyed all the dh venting. Mine was gone for two weeks and I so looked forward to his return. That is until he returned. He is having a little bit of trouble living up to my wildest hopes and dreams to put it mildly. I will say he tries but I tire of asking and explaining all the time. Who ever said raising children and a husband at the same time is too much to ask really hit that nail on the head.

Dd3 will be 4 next week and we are inviting 1 other large family over to play in the sprinkler and eat cupcakes. I won't be slicing cake or doing dishes forever; she will be here to supervise her own children; I like her enough to talk if we get the chance and she lets me hold her baby so I my dose of milk breath. A simple celebration but still fun.

I totally feel you with the bolded part.

So, you have to play catch up with me??? JK
I nursed my 5th throughout my pregnancy, IT WAS NOT FUN!
post #110 of 264
Thanks for the kind words, I'm feeling a tiny bit better today. We had a really good morning and then we ran errands, everything went great at the store (for once) until checkout and all of a sudden my nose just started bleeding everywhere! So I'm trying to pay for our stuff, stop the bloody nose, and keep the 2 and 4 year old from wondering off and or grabbing candy off the shelves So not fun.
I know I really just need a change in attitude with all this.
oh ya, ds3 has decided to become nocturnal Any idea how I can get his clock back to semi normal without killing myself from exhaustion?
BTW if one more stranger tells me "you've got your hands full" I think I just might crash my grocery cart into them

I can't imagine having 4 and 5 at the same time! I had a dream last week that we had surprise twins and woke up in total panic. Congrats on your pregnancy.

My daughter keeps saying she is praying for twins. If we end up with twins she is so grounded.

lol My dd is 6 and we watched a lifetime movie about the first surviving quintuplets delivered in the us. She looks at me and says "can't you have six babies mom....PLEASE!!!"

But twins are amazing.
post #115 of 264
Oh, : Mentioning twins, please can everyone else who's been past their sixth pregnancy please tell me that they were measuring WAY ahead at 14 weeks? Up to the navel ahead, please?

Lying would be good, if you can't honestly give me the answer I'm looking for. I may not get a 12 week scan because I booked late, so :

Congratulations, AM! You made me laugh so hard my pelvic floor screamed in agony and ran off to the bathroom without me...

Catch-up with you? I am not sure I can keep up with my own life.
By the time I get to #6 who knows how many you'll have.
Nursing through a pregnancy is tough for me too. I try to bite my tongue and say nothing when a woman posts that she hopes she gets to tandem nurse.

You forgot, "Are they all yours?" No, somewhere I found these 5 identical kids and they just started following me around. OR No, just a bunch of random kids; I hate going anywhere alone.

The running joke in my extended family is that twins is a sign to stop. It is my great-grandma who started saying so. Her twins were babies 12 and 13 though so she may have had other reasons.

Um... sorry?
post #118 of 264
when strangers pull out the "you hands sure are full" line I just smile back at them and say "Better full than empty!!" You can tell that they think on that for a second and it shuts them up. I get tired of it too though. One of these days I might bite someone's head off for saying it. I don't think that they understand that we hear that every time we walk out of the house.

Dh and I might have #6 on the way. (waiting to test in just a few more days) I know that last time I was pregnant I saw a maternity t-shirt that said something like:

Yes I know what causes that.
Yes we have a TV.
Yes my hands are full.
Yes they are all mine.



I know it said a couple more things. I think it was on cafe press. I have got to find it for the next pregnancy though just so I can be snarky when we all go out.

That sounds like a great church. My husband is a pastor, and we actually have church members ask if we know what causes that. Who asks their pastor this sort of thing?!?

Hi everyone! Another M.O.M. here wanting to join in the fun. I have 4 kids (ages 12, 8, 5, & 2). We are relaxed homeschoolers, and very big on voluntary simplicity. So nice to come across other moms who I can relate to. Especially reading the comments on "Are they all yours?" & "You have your hands full" (my personal pet peeves!)

Anyway, looking forward to getting to know you all better!
