We have 4 ds 19 dd's 16, 9 & 6 we would of had more but had to wait 7 years for no 3 so decided to stop at 4.

I have DD1 who is 22, DS1 who is 17, DS2 who is 7 but only for another six days and DD2 who is 2and a half.

I'm a single parent which makes me feel I'm looking after 500 children at times and not just 4!!

I have 5 dcs aged 10, 8, 6(dts) and 5. 3 boys and 2 girls. It is all getting easier at the moment. Probably the lull before the teenage hormone storm that will be coming grin.

A tiny 3 dd and a ds.....yes he was last......but we were delighted either way!

charlottehere Thu 13-Jun-13 23:09:41

Not having anymore.....DH has had the snip

FreedomOfTheTess Sat 15-Jun-13 15:14:50

DD2 arrived about 4.5 weeks early, but all was well, and doctor said maybe my due date was a couple of weeks out, as her weight didn't reflect a baby being born 4.5 weeks early.

So I have my fourth and last now.

DH will be having le snip very soon.

AmberSocks Wed 26-Jun-13 13:16:38

I have stopped thinking about how many we will have,at the moment ijust know that i will probably want another one after this one so that will be 6.FInancially we can afford lots so i guess its just down to how many we can cope with!

sweetno64 Thu 04-Jul-13 20:49:42

4 aged: 6 1/2 (x2), 3 and 16 months.

I feel quite happy although stretched with 4. DH has had the snip but I worry at 33 I will actually want another down the line..... shock

Twit Wed 10-Jul-13 21:04:10

I'm a lightweight with 5, 4 ds and 1 dd, I get the 'kept trying til we got a girl' as well but no, she is in the middle. Dd wants us to have a sister for her lol but I'm done I think.

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 !!!!

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

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

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

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

shall I try? grin

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 Fri 19-Jul-13 01:23:17

congratulations multimama thanks

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!

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?

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.

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.

hottea7 Mon 05-Aug-13 08:06:23

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