hi, i'm just curious to know what 5th babies are like, especially birth wise as my 5th is due in december and i'm getting a bit nervous of how quick it'll be. my 4th baby was born in 2 and a half hours and was screaming the place down! lol anyone with experiences they'd like to share?

its a lot of hard work with one or lots of babies, but the more you have the easier it is to get down to it cos you know whats coming. the best advice i can give anyone whether new to being a mum or not is... stick to your guns as it were, stand your ground with them, if you say yes to something DONT change your mind cos thats the slippery slope to losing parental control!!! and say "i love you" to your children every day, looking them in the eyes as you do
