Hats off to you- I have four and it feels like 8 some days.

Good luck smile

Wow, that's lovely news smile. I have 4 like whyme2 and agree it does feel like double that at times grin. Currently pregnant with no.5, and have lots of admiration for you!

thanks for all your messages, you guys are the best, you have really cheered me up. I always wanted a large family but thought I would stop at 6! This pregnancy feels harder than the others, prob a sign that i am getting old!!

droves I have actually got 2 washing machines and it feels like they are on permanently.

Diege congrats on your pregnancy, how far gone?

4madboys Don't give up now 5 is an odd number LOL!!!

Thanks katewestmum smile. I will be 28 weeks tomorrow, so just peeking into the third trimester. Lol at even numbers - that's why I had number 4 grin. Wouldn't mind evening it up to 6, though I think both my body and dh might protest a little too much.
Best of luck with everything - how many weeks are you now?

Diege Thu 11-Aug-11 15:23:45

Oh and you've just reminded me to get another wash on grin

katewestmum Thu 11-Aug-11 15:45:33

hi Diege I will be 28 weeks on Saturday, whats your EDD? My body started protesting after number 4 LOL!! as for hubby I blame him every time I get pregnant. If you don't mind me asking, how old are you?

Due date 4th Nov (though 9th on my dates!). I'm 41, and it took me quite a while to get pregnant this time compared to in my 30s, plus a few mcs along the way. Dh has been keen to ttc up to now, but I'm sure it's due to the efforts that are required wink. Poor thing has been pretty much deprived since the positive test this time blush

Due date for me is 6th Nov. I'm 43 and like you it took me a while to get pregnant this time. I had a couple of mcs but I was determind to get pregnant again. My hubby is in the same situation, deprived since the positive test, without giving TMI he's gone from more than once a day to nothing! blush

grin Glad it's not just me! One of the notable things for me this pregnancy has been the 'big family' comments which I find really get to me, despite my best efforts. Presuming you get them too, how do you deal with them? <nosey>

Diege I sent you a private message with my email address

Diege! Congrats (it's katnkittens/perpetuallypregnant) our number 5 is 4 months now and lying attached to boob as I type! She's amazing but definitely the last!
