Hi. My name is Brianna. I have 2 kids from a previous relationship who call my current SO daddy. The doctors have been telling him for years now that he was sterile or that we had a 1 in 14 million chance of conceiving. So he was on board when I told him that I thought God should be in control of our family size. And that if we were meant to have more, we would. And if not, I really suck at being pregnant anyway. My kids were 27 weeks and 33 weeks at birth. I always wanted 4 to 6 kids, but didn't think it was in the cards after that. So... today I got a BFP. We're totally in shock. But of course super happy. Pray for a sticky baby.

Okay mamas since I started this thread, I guess I should update once in a while!!! I'm about 18wks pg and feeling very good! I'm young so, so far all three of my pregnancies have been super easy, no vomiting, not super tired, I gained 25lbs with my first, 21lbs with my 2nd, and I'm not sure how much I've gained so far with this oneas we are using a very hands off m/w. but all of babies have been nearly 9lbs at birth so I'm doing somehting right! Breast feeding goes well, my first was bf for 2yrs, my 2nd only 13mo!!! I feel bad that we weaned, but I'm not sure what happened, but my nipples were becoming sooooo super sensitive when nursing not just when I had my period but ALL the time!!! He continued to nurse sort of on and off for months after until I found out I was pg then it mostly dwindled. I'm getting nervous about bf this next one as I'm sooo super tiny and loose the baby weight (which isn't very much to begin with, and I try hard to gain more!!) so quickly that I feel super drained. Plus this pg my nipples have been ultra sensitve this time like inbetween sooooo tunred on if they are rubbed against my bra, to totally irritated that hubby's been touching them!! Sooo I'm hoping they fel better after babe is born! Also I'm a bit worried about subsequent pregnancies and breastfeeding and afterpains, anyone care to comment? Like I've heard that bf can make it feel so much worse after you've had many babies. I'm getting scared!! I got my period back with my 1st at 12mo and with my 2nd it was 5mo, it seems like after each baby, I get more fertile??!! Anyone else have that happen to them? Anyways, I'm rambling, but. . .

Welcome newbies!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And of course H&H 9mo to all the preggie mamas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi ladies!
I'm Brenna, wife of 8 years to Jay. We've been together for 11 years, and Christians for 4 years. We have 2 awesome sons, and #3 due in November!
I'm QF but hubby isn't...for the most part. After I'd become convicted about our use of bc, dh agreed to try for "only one more". Well we ended up going through secondary infertility for 3 years. It was truly a trial for us. Both our sons were conceived while using bc so we assumed our next would happen fast as well. I had just come to terms with being a mom of 2 for the rest of my days when we got our bfp!
My ILs are highly disapproving of our newest blessing. And of course we've gotten the whole "have your girl finally and be done, right?". Um hopefully not!
Anyway that's us in a nutshell.

Hi ladies, would appreciate prayers. Having some pink spotting. Hoping is nothing, I did bleed a little with my son, but really scared right now. Thanks.

After bleeding and cramps picked up considerably yesterday, I passed what I believe was the placenta earlier this afternoon. I was about 8 weeks along.

We chose to name the baby Nox Luca. The meaning of the names are night and light, representing for us the phrase 'After Darkness Light' from the Protestant Reformation.

Thank you for your prayers.

“ Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
And naked shall I return there.
The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away;
Blessed be the name of the LORD.”

I'm not quiverfull and DH is most definitely not, but for some reason I'm drawn to the idea/belief at times. I have been posting in Family Planning of late with lots of thoughts, and I read here from time to time. I hope you don't mind. Just wondering if someone could address the issue of money. What if you don't make much and never will? I know God provides. I don't fear not having necessities, but what about belief in government assistance? What about standard of living... say your extended family thinks your standards should be higher with having things beyond necessity? I'm just wondering how large families deal with those sorts of issues. I hope I'm not intruding. Thanks.

When we started, dh made 11,000 his first year in the States. When we did the taxes we could not figure out how we'd made it. That's God. His pay has increased over 8 years (with the birth of each new child, go figure ) but it's not even at the average income. At the moment we're living with family while he's in his country, and our income is limited to rents, when the tenants actually pay.

Government assistance: I cringe at it. However, dh doesn't. The government takes an awful lot of our money, especially owning properties. He feels it's a fair exchange to use it when it's absolutely necessary, considering how much he is paying in and will continue to pay whether we need it or not, being a man who never stops working.

Lifestyle: It's our family. How we live is our business. I don't care what random strangers think of us. I do care about how my family views us but our convictions and what God has called us to takes precedence. Fortunately, my family is very understanding. And if there are things they wish our kids could have, but we can't afford, they generally offer them as birthday presents. Basically continuing on what dad's parents did for them when they were a young family living frugally.

I kept looking at the beginning of the year for a new thread and it took so long to start up that I gave up. My DH is out of town tonight so I am passing time on mothering and found the 2010 thread. When my DH is home I'm not a night owl, but I have a hard time sleeping when he's gone.

Anyways, I'll go by M. My DH and I have been married for 6 years. We both come from large families and have known since before we got married that we would be leaving our family size up to God. I didn't even know there was a name for it until a couple years ago. We have 3 children, 4 and under, and have had 2 miscarriages. I'm currently pg and due in Sept.

Nickey, I'm sorry for your loss.

Someone on here was asking about twins? Sorry I can't remember who it was, but did you ever find out if you are having twins?

Congratulations to the other pg moms and any that have new babies.

Nickey, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Gentle hugs mama.

How is everyone enjoying summer so far? Anyone else stuck in the New England heat wave?
