About to be mommy of 6 any other expecting#6,7,8,9.....?


Hello ladies I cautiously moved over here to the first trimester board and I'm expecting #6 we're excited but scared shitless at the same time #5 was such a tough transition it seems the odd numbers are #3 was so so hard #4 was not bad #5 still recovering and he's almost 3 question is for you ladies with 5 or more did you find the transition harder for certain pregnancies?

Awe thank you! You're too sweet! Anyone is welcome on my thread I just love talking to other mommies and I don't get out of the house much with these kiddos lol when I do its to our business to work a few days to give the hubby a break I'm just terrified as going from 4 to 5 was so stressful exhausting and we swore we were done and couldn't do it again but here we are lol to be fair we said we were done at 3,4 and 5 now so this time I said well we might as well just keep having them lol thank you so much for your comment! How far along are you?

I can imagine going places is an exhausting endeavor with 5! I am the oldest of 5 so I definitely have an appreciation for the hard work you must do! In my experience as a child we paired off and stuck with a specific sibling so an even number would hopefully be a good thing I see you have a range of ages so hopefully you'll have some helpers for when the time comes. It will all work out I'm sure!!

I'm due Oct 4/5, so I'm just about 5 weeks now. It took about a year and a half to get pregnant again so I'm definitely excited. And every one tells me two is easier than one haha. . Go figure.

I can understand how you'd be terrified going from 5 to 6. I'm going from 4 to 5 within 6 years and I still wonder how I'm going to do it. This baby was definitely not planned, as we said we were done at 4 and actually DH was signed up to get a vasectomy, then I became pregnant before his appointment. He is still scheduled to get his vasectomy but we'll have one more child than we originally planned lol. I think after you reach a certain number, it gets harder to get out of the house so you're just like screw it... what's one more?

Yes I feel like I have to sets of kids my older three and younger 2 well now 3i guess huh? It is nice they help a lot! Going from 4 to 5 was very overwhelming but I'm just going to think positive! Congratulations on your lo that's exciting I think 2 was easier I'm the way that you know what to expect you know how important getting sleep when you can and you know what's not important! Only hard thing I think is being pregnant and having a lo is harder to rest where as on your first you could but then they have someone to play with and seeing your first become a big sibling there's just no way to explain the feeling its amazing!

Going from 4 to 5 was by far my most difficult but there was almost 5 years in between so it wad like starting all over I think that's one benefit to having them closer as you did! Congrats on the new lo I'm sure you will do just fine! My husband had a vasectomy scheduled as well lol but now were wondering if we should just see what happen good Lord though we may end up with 15 haha totally agree with the just screw it I'm always a mess and never go anywhere so might as well have a little baby to love on right?

I'm glad they help you out!! Having a positive outlook is half the battle. It may take some adjusting but everything will be great

I'm definitely glad to have a little experience behind me and know better what to expect/do this time. And you're so right about having my lo to care for while pregnant. It does add an extra challenge. But I'm a SAHM now and it beats having to work while pregnant so no complaints! I'm so excited to give my DD a sibling, hoping for a little boy
