Ooh the 40 plus?? <intrigued>

iclaudius Fri 29-Mar-13 16:28:23

Yes I was there a white but lurked a lot as mc a lot! Had a long awaited one last feb and am now 22 weeks again with a surprise baby!! Like buses eh? Wait ages for one!!!

Congrats anyway - at least your numbers make me look less freaky!!!

Love this thread.
It makes me feel like a have a teeny family!

We have 4 who range from 5.5 to 17 months.

3 girls and a boy. And a dog
I am not having anymore! (Well maybe more dogs)

I 'only' have 4.

2 ds (9 + 7) and 2 dd (4 + 3 months)

I am done am amazed at the brave women with any more! shock grin

MrsDeVere Fri 29-Mar-13 16:46:28

I have five
1 girl who died aged 14 nearly 7 years ago. She would have been 21 January just gone.
4 boys - very nearly 3, 5, 9, 19.

4 have blue/greenyblue eyes, one has brown.

I would love more but I decided best not due to my age (45), OH having MS and one of our boys having SN.

Doesn't stop me yearning for that No 6 that I know I was meant to have! smile

Sorry for the loss of your daughter mrsdevere that must be very hard sad
Wow iclaudius so soon to be number 8!!! Many congrats- I like a nice even number grin Pop over onto the thread and say hello if you get the chance!

iclaudius Fri 29-Mar-13 20:49:43

Mrs de vere - am your age currently feeling 90!

MrsDeVere Fri 29-Mar-13 20:57:15

Well I'm not surprised! Two babies so close together would make a 20 year old feel about 90 grin

After I had DC5 I asked OH to have the snip. I did it because I knew that I would be wanting another baby in a few months and I seemed to be very lucky in being able to get pregnant very quickly!
DC4 was supposed to be my last but I thought 'oh well might as well go for another one, its unlikely to happen'. It did...very quickly blush

It was weird. I didn't want him to do it but I knew it was the only way really.
I still hope for a 'little miracle' though grin
One never knows......

Sometimes fancy another but can't afford it.

I have a ds with the same name as Mrsdeveres youngest as well grin

KateShmate Fri 29-Mar-13 22:17:34

5 DD's!
6YO, 5YO and 3YO triplets smile

duchesse Fri 29-Mar-13 22:19:42

Bloody hell Kate! That's almost as close in age as our friends who had two multiple births in 2 years (5 in 2 years).

iclaudius Fri 29-Mar-13 22:23:13

5 eggs - wow that's odd!!!! Mine is 10!

MrsDeVere Fri 29-Mar-13 22:24:35

Well mothers with lots of kids are obviously very good at choosing names ;)

Only four here too: aged 13, 11, 8 and 8.

BeaWheesht Fri 29-Mar-13 22:30:17

Awh enjoy your families. I'm very envious of you all, we only have 2 but we won't have anymore, always feel there's a few missing iykwim?

KateShmate Fri 29-Mar-13 22:34:02

Duchesse It felt like it at times! We had 5 under 3, but the eldest only turned 3, 2 weeks before triplets were born; and there is 15 months between DD1 and DD2

sweetkitty Fri 29-Mar-13 22:36:52

(8,7,4 and 2)

PearlyWhites Fri 29-Mar-13 22:39:05

4 dd 14 dd 8 dd 2 and ds 7 months

Bluelightsandsirens Fri 29-Mar-13 22:44:51

We only have 3 all under 10 and in school.

Can I ask how you all cope with going out in the car etc with more than 3, genuine question because I dread that car seat rock and roll to get the car seats in and then the "she is leaning on me" etc

I would love more but i don't think my nerves could take it smile

My5boysandme Fri 29-Mar-13 22:44:53

I have 5 boys and pregnant with boy no6.

My boys are 9,8,6 and 4. Sadly my youngest will forever be 13 weeks and 4 days.

bluelights you need a stupidly big car that is almost impossible to park.

my5 so sorry for your loss & congratulations on your impending arrival.

Oh and well done for managing to leave the house with that many/remain sane enough to write in sentences!
