Who fancies checking in with names and more importantly NUMBERS!!!

I work full time but take a year off (til child turns 1) then I go back to work. We can afford it and dh and I share responsibility so it works and I have semi-retired DF for child care.

Aww wish i had loads of kids, i just have 2 and would like 4 or 5, problem is i hate being pregnant!

A friend of mine is pregnant with number 7, she has 5 boys and 1 girl and is keeping this one a surprise.

Awww vito that's lovely that your friend isn't finding out this time, I didn't on my last and it was very special smile

I reckon you should have just one or 2 more... I don't have great pregnancies either and end up a non-walking mess with SPD/pgp but I wouldn't stop me having 10 more!! <<I wish>>

Bit late to this but we have 4 under 8s, 2 boys and 2 girls. Our youngest is 3 and 8 months, so very close together!!! We found it very hard when they were all very young but now that the youngest is nearly 4 it is amazing and they are all very close (although we have lots of arguments too!)

Puddlelane Fri 10-May-13 21:02:47

...looking at ttc number 4. So still not a large family on here by any means but 3 is a big family where I live.
I'm getting broody!

lia66 Fri 10-May-13 21:12:13

4 girls and 2 boys
Dd is 18
Ds almost 16
Ds almost 10
Dd 8
Dd 6

I was 44 when I had youngest, am now 46 and still hoping mother nature might be kind to me in the shape of a last minute bundle ( you can dream right? )

I recognise a few names on here smile

Nonotthatagain Fri 10-May-13 21:13:22

another one with 4, DS 18, DD1 16, DD2 15, DD3 14 - would have had another but started late (& DH said no)

Hassled Fri 10-May-13 21:14:00

A mere 4 here, but well spaced out - I take my hat off to those of you with 4 or more close together.

Jojay Fri 10-May-13 21:14:55

Just the 4 here, DS 6, DS 4, then DTD and DTS 21 mths.

I love them all to death but I am SO over being broody now. No more!!

ClairesTravellingCircus Sat 11-May-13 10:48:15

4 here too dd1 dd2 dtd dts

I still get broody despite the fact I havent had a full nights sleep in 15 months!

But the risk of having twins again is enough to make it go awaygrin

Hope you're well hun xx

coldethyl Sat 11-May-13 20:20:33

4 here too - DS 11, DS 10, DD 8, DS 2. Def enough for us, I'm struggling to keep up as it is. Today has been a long day of sniping while it rains, but often it's just lovely and I always wanted a large family. DH is an only child and periodically looks around and says 'who do all these children belong to?' grin

lia66 Sat 11-May-13 22:01:03

Waves back to cherry we are all good thank you. Relocated to the west midlands last year. It's working out well.

DwellsUndertheSink Sat 11-May-13 22:07:43

i have 5 currently - 4 boys and a girl. 3 are mine, 2 are fosterlings. age range 16-2

lookingforbaubles Sat 11-May-13 22:22:38

officially 5 but add in 2 girl friends and a besty friend who seem to live here makes 8

not some thing i had considered when they were younger, 5 dc actually results in 10 for breakfast/lunch/tea!

MMollyMum2 Sat 18-May-13 09:15:30

I have 3 at the moment and pregnant with 4, 5, and 6.

Mrpip Sun 19-May-13 07:13:08

5 here. 4ds and 1dd. I've been surprised how many others have the same combination. Everyone assumes we were waiting on a girl as dd is the youngest but that was never the case. I'd love one more but my body is no longer willing!

2old2beamum Sun 19-May-13 11:52:56

11 here 45-7 Only did rudies for the eldest 3 grin the others arrived via the front door which is now locked and bolted!
