bopsX3 I have 3 dds (12, 12, 8) and then had 3 ds's (4, 2 and 6 weeks). Was very surprised to have a ds after 3 dds, but seem to be on a roll now grin. Interested (in a purely theoretical way as we are 'done') if I would start again with dds!

Dd1 5 dd2 4 dd3 2 dd4 8mo

No more here as dd4 had a stroke at birth.

Hi, I don't have a large family (yet) but just out of interest, how many children of one sex did you have before you had a child of the opposite sex? (Hope that makes sense confused)

Just because I have 3 boys, who I love very much. However, I'm dying for a daughter. I know it's all totally random and everyones different but just thought itd be interesting to find out smile

(Sorry for gate crashing)

Can I join please, I have three DC and one on the way.. is four enough??

DS1 6yrs, DD1 4yrs, DS2 18months, DD2 due April...

I am done with this one as too ill to do it again!

I have 6, they are 11, 7, 5, 3, 19months and one week, dh has said no more sad

mathanxiety Sun 04-Aug-13 06:27:07

5 here.
4 DDs and one DS. DS is DC2.
They are - almost 12, 15, 18, 20 and 23.
Two redheads, two brunettes and one blondey; all blue and blue-green eyes, pale Irish skin, freckles - some more, some less.
I feel I've sort of retired from the really active bit of parenting at this point, or maybe I'm just a zombie on autopilot. I've been a single mother for six years now.

MultipleMama Tue 30-Jul-13 23:24:56

DH has a great job and a new promotion. And he works in finance so he's great with money. We sell to buy with a lot of things i.e sell things/products and with that money we buy the product we want. Luxuries are saved up for, Xmas etc are bought throughout year. I'm on maternity leave and have 2 jobs that are done online which I get paid for. And our child fees etc will be paid for from my trust fund when we move.

DH keeps everything on a tight leash and we're practical especially on those tight months. We struggle and manage some months.

NAR4 Sat 27-Jul-13 17:33:20

To be nosey. How do those of you with 6 or more manage financially? I ask because we would love more but just can't afford it. Don't think we could stretch to running a 9 seater, for example. Are lots of you self employed or do you simply pull your belts in tighter?

Thinkingofmyfabfour Sat 20-Jul-13 13:20:47

I have 4, ds1 age 6, ds2 3 (nearly 4), ds3 2 and dd 5 days old!!
Can't really comment on how I'm going to cope with 4 yet but this will be our last, dh is having the snip. Have been getting lots of 'you got your girl at last' type comments but that's to be expected I suppose. Didn't know we were having a girl so am a bit shocked as I expected to be a mum of 4 boys!

ZingWidge Fri 19-Jul-13 01:23:17

congratulations multimama thanks

MultipleMama Fri 19-Jul-13 01:10:15

Today I found out the sex of 2nd set of twins are!

A little boy & girl. So now family and friend don't have to keep guessing if they're fraternal or another ID set haha.

So, I now have 4 boys and 2 girls! smile

ZingWidge Sat 13-Jul-13 12:44:35

hurryup
if I had twins - a boy and a girl- I'd have what you have.

shall I try? grin

mumsylady Sat 13-Jul-13 11:22:38

That should be an exclamation mark, not a question Mark lol . ? Blasted tablet

mumsylady Sat 13-Jul-13 11:21:13

Our little lady arrived a week late , in April ....fortunately not April fools day :D she is our 3rd daughter, so girls catching up. She is so beautiful & we feel very blessed & we are thoroughly grateful for all our children. ? But it's hard work !!!!
