Yes very very nervous here. We told my grandmother a few days ago and it didn't go well so I'm expecting no different we tell everyone else. People were so rude when we announced our third so I'm really stressing over it already. I had to announce at 8 weeks last time as bump/bloat couldn't be hidden and people are asking was I pregnant so I'm hoping I don't show quickly this time. We made our announcement picture yesterday though, thought we would keep it as simple as possible.

I'm sooooo sorry you have to deal with that. It's not fair that family can be so mean about our sweet babies! I hope you are able to hide it longer and be excited despite them.

I LOVE your announcement! Super cute!!

No idea but probably something with the kids. My dh is really into photography so will likely do something involving a picture of them but not sure yet.

That sounds nice. I'd love to do something with the kids in but with them being so young it would probably be an impossible task. My daughter will not stay still for a second. I don't have a recent picture of her that's not blurred lol.

Haha at that age I don't blame you! Would be really difficult! I'm not even sure if we can pull it off with ours right now.. Our 17 month old is always on the move.

Hi ladies! I'm expecting my fourth, but will technically be number 7 including my OH's children from previous relationships. Im so very excited, although would've waited longer by better plan as my youngest is only 16 months old. She'll be 3 months shy of 2 when baby arrives. My older two were only 12 months and 8 days apart though so the age gap doesn't really concern me too much.
We have children that are 15, 12, 7, 6, 3 and 16 months.
Hope you ladies have a better go at this pregnancy than I have. HG sucks! Haha. I'm still sick a lot at 19 weeks but it's been a bit better.
Huge and H&H 9 months to all of you!

We have our 4th (and last) baby on the way. We originally settled on 2 because DS2 has severe ADHD but DS3 happened unexpectedly (we weren't trying) and after months of denial, got used to the idea. But there almost a 10 year gap between DS1 and DS3 then a 6.5 year age gap between DS2 and DS3. I was adamant I was having my tubes tied after DS3 until a friend opened her mouth and pointed out the age gaps. My mother is the youngest of 4 with the largest gap being 13 years, smallest being 7 and I remember her saying she often felt alone as the eldest had moved out and started her own family and that her 2 older brothers didn't want their baby sister dragging behind them and their friends. Hubby was an only child for his mother - he has siblings but his father is in a different relationship so he didn't grow up particularly close with them. We sat down and talked and decided we don't want DS3 to feel alone as he grows up so decided that #4 was it. But there were conditions too - if I wasn't pregnant by the time he was 9 months old, I wasn't doing it because I'm 33 this year and feel I am too old to have anymore babies. So we have a 17 month age gap. I don't think it's going to be any more difficult than it was having 21 months between the first 2 especially now they are older and more independent and like to help out with the baby but we will see how time plays out.

When I found out I was pregnant with DS3, I was in tears so didn't say anything to anyone but hubby, a close friend and my mother. I'd dropped off some money to a so-called friend who bailed me up the morning I found out (I'd said nothing because I was processing emotions) and told me I looked like shit so I must be pregnant regardless of the fact I had only had 3 hours sleep the night before due to sitting a restless toddler the night before. She proceeded to bully the friend who I had told for answers then when she couldn't get them, bailed up MIL who had been sworn to secrecy. When that failed, she publicly announced it to everyone leaving me with no choice but to confirm it. Needless to say, she still denies her actions and I have had nothing to do with her since. This time, even though baby is planned, I've told very, very few. I had the support last time but because we planned this one, the tide will turn and everyone will have to have a say in our choices. Personally, don't announce it until you are ready. And those who don't have anything nice to say don't have to play a roll in the bringing up of baby.
