BFP #5 - which is not a 'surprise' - but I have spent an inordinate amount of time staring at a fixed point in space like this>>>> shock .

DH is no help because he's just silly excited!

And I really want to avoid telling anyone IRL until 12 weeks or even later.

Congratulations. We have decided to start ttc number 4 next month. Like you though I think I will be in shock for a while. We really want another and I'd like to get the baby stage done as this will be our last ds3 is 17 months. smile

Thank you! I was starting to feel lonely grin .

DC4 is the strongest argument for DC5 @ ours. She is adorable & adored by everybody. Toddling around right now wearing a fairy dress on top of a princess dress with a dragon cape. Spoilt much??? Ha ha!

Congratulations! How old are your other four?

I have six dc and it is brilliant grin we all went bowling yesterday and it was so much fun, a family day out or get together is like an instant party with so many of us grin

10yo, 8yo, 6yo & 2yo.

Definitely an entourage! They are a great gang - I love hearing them chatter.

Congrats on your bfp5. 5 is no more work than 4. I'd love no6 but was sterilised after the last one!

Congratulations! Your wee one sounds adorable!

I have 7. They're magnificent grin But I couldn't persuade them to go as the Seven Dwarfs for halloween, such a pity!

I'm mainly not so excited about pregnancy and newborn stage tbh. 5th child will be totally fab - but I'm very 'over' the novelty of nausea/exhaustion/pain/bleeding . And I will need a bigger car that I won't be able to park . And my current professional break will probably turn into 'never work again'...

Annunziata - we did a full Wizard of oz set last year. DD1 was Dorothy, and then we had a lion, a scarecrow and a tin man. Toto was a stuffed dog... So clearly we were missing a member!

20 weeks pregnant with #6. Love having my big family, the noise, chaos, fun and laughter - well sometimes, we also have bickering and fighting.
As an only child I was always determined to have more then one child - quite how I sneaked up to 6 I am not sure.

5ChildrenAndIt Fri 31-Oct-14 14:26:41

I'm an only child! It's quite handy since we have an 'exclusive' granny to support us grin .

Annunziata Fri 31-Oct-14 14:33:40

Oh I am jealous of the Wizard of Oz! That sounds great! Number 7 is 15 years younger than Number 6, so we were a person down before then too.

I loved Christmas and Halloween with our team. It's so special. Mine all slept in the same bed for years!

Congratulations, I'm 36 weeks pregnant with number 5. I still have regular moments of staring into space!

Being pregnant has definitely been harder this time round with running around after everyone else.

My older two are the same age as your eldest two.

Your Dd sounds so sweet. I think it will definitely be a ds4 here. I always wanted a dd but I do love my group of boys. They get on so well. I look forward to when the children are older and big family Christmases. I took all 3 of them trick or treating last night and we had great fun.

I hope the pregnancy isn't too tough on you. I'm a bit worried about SPD next time as I had it for the first time when pregnant with ds3 and it was awful.

Hi congratulations flowers

I'd love 5 or 6 but think we are probably done now, I've just had dc4 he is three weeks old and just adorable. I also have 9,3 and 13 months. I found the end of pregnancy quite tough but mainly because of my small age gap and dc wasn't walking.
With dc3 I had really bad spd but didn't get it all this time was really surprised as I expected to get it from early on but nothing. Dc3 was a very big baby (10lb8 blush) so maybe that was something to do with it dc4 was smaller.
