LOL, that is too funny.  :)  I'm still wrapping my head around three!  And my husband is #11 of 12 so its not like I didn't have fair warning :)

I know, right?? I keep telling myself I know how to do this, because we've done it before, but 5? Lol.

Naw, we really do know how to do this and it's going to be great....but THIS time I'm going to take better care of myself. I think 5 children has earned me that. I'm going to get some new maternity clothes to wear. And I'm going to make sure I get out alone before I'm shackled to a nursing baby for a year+...as if I'm not still nursing the 1.5 year old. Lol.

O k, so this is like my lifeline right here. I can't tell anyone irl yet....my sil is pg with her first, and my sister has been ttc her second for a year. I keep thinking I should just wait for her to be pg before I tell anyone....so I'm waiting, hoping and praying for her. I so much want to create a time and space for this pregnancy...but there is so much to get done first. I'm going to put 4 children in 1 extremely small bedroom in the next few days. Double bunk beds and everyone is sharing one small closet. Must. Get. Out. Of. Here.

I'm living a travel trailer with a total of 16 ft of actual living space. We are working on getting into a larger rv ASAP!

Hug. I feel like I have someone to relate to! How many do you got in there? Yes, I'm counting the bed and storage space....but that's not quite living space, eh? How long have you been there? We've been at this for 7 years.

We've been full time in our rv for a year. All 6 of us- tho originally we had 7 crammed in here. My oldest daughter moved out since but does come back from time to time.

My biggest job is staying organized. There is no extra stuff so in one way that keeps us a little more simplified.

I've been at it for 7 years now and it has certainly lost its luster. I can't wait to get out of here....but it will take a few miracles yet for that to happen.

This baby will be our 7th smile.gif It is however only my 4th pregnancy. We have an age range of age 2 to 15 (5 are 11 & under). We also homeschool. We are due at the end of May, but my body doesn't like to be pregnant longer than 35 weeks so our baby will most likely make an appearance in April. Looking forward to being part of the group!

Yay! Welcome! Any twins in that group, splendid?
post #33 of 49

Nope, all singles :) We have a yours/mine/ours crew. Ages 15, 11, 10, 10, 6, and 2 :)

Awesome! You've got a near triplet combination with the 10/11 year olds! Wow!
post #35 of 49
Lol. I've not thought of it that way. My 10 year old is disabled, so It's difficult to even think of him being the same age as the 2 girls near his age. He's closer developmentally to our 2 year old.

Wow! That sounds very intense. I'm going to enjoy hearing about and learning from your experiences, mama!

it's # 4 here  - and I am still a bit in denial. Having a belly already, that is not really possible, but oh well. 

 

this one wasn't planned, and I still have to come to terms with it (that's a bit weird typed out...)

 

oh well, I am a christian, and I do believe in the grand scheme of things, so ... I'll get there, eventually.

Hi Trin, looks like our kids are all right around the same age and I'm having #4 as well... welcome to the group :)

post #39 of 49

This is #6 for me, but I have a 20yo stepson as well.  In fact, he & his girlfriend just had a baby in Sept, so we are grandparents too!  Which is still crazy & surreal. Our kids are all spread out--20,14,12, 9, 8 & 2.  We decided as a family, that one more baby would be nice, especially since our little one is so much younger than the rest of her siblings. It's nice to meet some other large family mamas--most people around here just look at us and shake their heads, lol.

Nice to meet you all!

So how's everyone faring? I'm most nauseated at night. 11 weeks now, so trying to be zen about it. No time to think....but the older kids have been helping out a lot Thank G-d. Not easy.
