First time ever posting 😕
Im 25 later this year, I have 4 baby's ages 5,4,3,2 expecting 5th baby just found out, question is:
How did you tell your family? Friends?
How did they respond?
Was routine easy to get in to when 5th arrived?
What was labour like with the 5th?
No negative comments please! X

Hi OP,
I'm new here as well and I'm a mum of 6 (13, 11, 11, 9, 6, 2) I'm 50 and so grant that my situation is a bit different from yours. My sisters all have big families and so my family took it pretty well- though they may have been eye rolling a bit by the end. None of my labours have been too difficult, even with twins, but it was definitely quicker by the end. I've always done routine from birth- it's definitely easier. A lot depends on finances, too- how are that side of things?
Anyway, I'll wish you luck.

Hi I have 5 too ages range from 2-17
I had a miscarriage at 9 weeks last year and when I told my family I was pregnant they was like "another one" I just ignore them. If I want to have 6 I will have 6 lol

When I had my first 3 I was only 20 but had bags of energy and soon got them into routine, 4&5 have just slotted in that and have been no trouble.

5th labour was the quickest but by far the most painful even recovery was hard.

Congratulations and best of luck x
