This is our 5th baby. Anyone else already have children? Anyone else have lots of children?

I'm a little worried about having 2 it seems like a huge change. Right now my son is our world and it will be strange to split my time between 2.
How are you ladies doing? Anyone feeling a little sad? I feel guilty that my son won't have us all to himself...

Married to my best friend & expecting baby #4 in June 2013!
This is the first pregnancy I'm totally thrilled about from the start. That sounds horrible, but with my first, altho planned and desperately wanted, I was a little apprehensive about how everything was going to change. I was content to just be pregnant... Then my 2nd was a suprise and a little soon, and like several mamas here, I wondered how we'd handle switching gears from an only to 2. (Don't worry too much, its amazing to see your children together, and your love just multiplies!)Now I can't wait, its all going to be awesome and I just want this pregnancy to fly by so I can meet our next little one.
We've always planned on 4 or 5, but this might be our last, we'll see how life goes!
I was very nervous about how it would go when adding my 2nd child to the family. Your love grows and there is easily a place for your next child. The one thing to look out for, is to make sure you don't always let people help with the older one. They are all trying to be nice and let you have time with the new baby which is very good, just make sure (if you have people helping) that they take the baby sometimes and you do something special with the older child. You need to actually set things up like this b/c the older child can wait for things wile the baby can't.
The love they have for each other is amazing. Watching them play just makes your heart swell. (they will fight too ). I sometimes felt bad for the younger one too b/c she didn't get as much one on one attention as her older sister got, but they get something in exchange they get an older sibling with whom they can play and communicate.
Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!

I'm hoping there is only one in there, mainly because I want a VBAC but also because twins are such hard work. DH is hoping for twins behind my back and I know it is a possibility since it runs on both sides of our family. My dd has 2 young Kurdish girls who take care of her at dc and they told me it is a tradition in their culture to ask the older child what the baby's gender will be. Every time we ask her she says, "sister brother." I'm hoping that doesn't mean I've got one of each!!
Last night I was talking about a friend of ours who will be having a baby any day. I told my oldest daughter that her friend might even now have a baby brother. Our youngest daughter (just turned two) said "baby brother. me baby brother." I said you want a baby brother? She said "yes, baby" in the cutest voice and made a tiny circle with her fingers. I had been "feeling" also that this baby would be a boy. We'll just see.
So my question for you two is: When is the best time to find out how many are in there?! I am dying to know! I think I remember reading somewhere that at 10-11wks they can clearly see how many and it is a good time to look at sacs if there are two.

I would love twins. I was hoping the clomid would help with that, but I don't think my beta was high enough for there to be two in there (it was 79 at 13dpo). I guess I'll find out for sure in July. I am having an u/s at a little over 8 weeks.

I have heard of someone finding out they had twins as early as 7 weeks. As tempting as it would be, I don't think I'd want an u/s that early, though!
Mama to 3 little boys plus someone new in the new year!
Not exactly scientific evidence, but I do pay attention to dreams like that. I'm taking part in a research study that involves getting a US in 2 weeks (I'll be 8 weeks), I'm hoping to find out then.
DD is 26 months and almost 100% potty learned, we are going to work on night weaning this weekend which is a long time coming, and she is VERY excited about her baby brother (as she calls the baby) She already loves to kiss my belly
