I probably won't be in maternity clothes until late July. I'm pretty tiny, but I just don't show that much until month 6, then everything jumps out.
Also, I grew up in a large family (oldest of seven), so I kind of think it's funny to think of three kids as a lot to take care of. I was babysitting four of my younger siblings at the same time from the age of 9. (Of course being a mother is totally different, and I never had to take them shopping or anything, but I did have to help manage everyone when my mom took us all shopping.)
I know my family is not even close to complete. I feel like I'm just getting started here with #3. I've always felt I wanted at least 6, but after my wonderful birthing experiences, I'm leaning closer to 8. We'll just have to see how it goes. I don't want to be having babies into my late 30s and early 40s... by then DD#1 could be having babies, and I'd rather focus on being a grandmother at that point. But I started young (DD#1 was born two months after my 22nd birthday), and I'm only 24 now, so at my current rate, I could easily have 8 kids before I turn 35.
I'm totally crazy aren't I.
