S o after all of the "never again" and "it's me time" talk after the last baby (who is 7/8 months?) they have just revealed she is pregnant with a baby girl. Can't say I'm surprised, hope all goes well as I think she had complications with bleeding last few times.

That's just what I wanted to hear as my third IVF cycle fails.

Soubriquet Mon 28-May-18 21:31:24

Of course they are

She will keep going until she's menopausal. She will then try with IVF.

When all that fails and she can no longer have babies, she will pressure her daughters to have them for her

So not right or fair is it? Thinking of you findingmyfeet

HarrietKettleWasHere Mon 28-May-18 21:33:01

Oh what a surprise.

There is something really not right about them.

Thanks itsnotnormal

I'm happy for her but I'm feeling quite sorry for myself today which is why I'm coming across as so bitter.

Why is it so easy for some people to get pregnant?

Pavlova31 Mon 28-May-18 21:34:08

Indeed not right or fair . Thinking of you too @findingmyfeet12

A good question .

Those poor children, especially the girls who seem to get the shitty end of the stick in terms of having to clean and babysit while the boys do nothing.

Sevendown Mon 28-May-18 21:36:21

Did they just out right lie?

JayZed Mon 28-May-18 21:37:29

But what happens when they physically can't have more children, will they put they're need to nature onto animals, 20 puppies and counting style hmm

I feel really sorry for the children, as it's not humanly possible to give them all the attention they each need and deserve. Children shouldn't have to be bringing up their brothers and sisters just because their parents an addiction to having more and more children

findingmyfeet12 Mon 28-May-18 21:38:36

I don't accept that the children get enough attention from their parents despite what the parents or children say. It's not physically possible.

athingthateveryoneneeds Mon 28-May-18 21:39:05

If they know the sex, she's about 20 weeks pregnant? And has an 8 month old (and all the others, obvs)? Wow.

I honestly can't believe how selfish they are.
Her pregnancys get riskier each time but still they risk her bleeding to death and making 19 children motherless.
Plus I don't think each of the children would feel fully bonded and understood. But that's just my personal opinion.

I do hope everything goes well for them all though flowers

papayasareyum Mon 28-May-18 21:40:29

there must be psychological stuff behind this addiction to having more babies. 21 children can’t get the care or attention they need. It’s selfish to have so many children.

RoadrunnerMeepMeep Mon 28-May-18 21:40:36

I really hope this doesn’t end badly for them. There has to a strong possibility of pph for her after so many pregnancies, and her age.

So sorry findingmyfeet x

HyacinthsBucket70 Mon 28-May-18 21:41:35

It's their cash cow, though, isn't it? Granted attention and money.

I think the media have created monsters out of these two and I feel so dreadfully sorry for the children having to grow up in that family.

ThorsMistress Mon 28-May-18 21:41:42

Where did you read this? A quick google doesn’t bring anything up?

BabiesDontNeedDaddies Mon 28-May-18 21:42:24

I feel sorry for the kids. No way they can be getting enough individual love and attention. Thats why they have foster placements over childrens homes these days. They seriously need to face their abandonment issues and learn how to love all the kids they have not just the babies.
