ttc number 5


Hi, I have now been ttc for 9 months.
I was due my period 2 days ago but no sign of it yet and am getting negative tests so am expecting period is just going to be late.
This might be number 5 for me but its still just as exciting and frustrating as it would have been with 1st!

Do you get people making comments and looking down their nose at you? It took me a long time to decide on another purely because I was worried what people would think but hubby kept saying its nothing to do with what others think, it's our choice.
I still have days when I think what will people say!
Good luck with number 6 x

Hi hun. Yes all the time. I am worried about what others will say as i am quite sensitive but hubby said at the end of the day he works full time, we are paying out full rent for a private 4 bed so there is enough space for everyone, we pay all our own bills and our kids have everything you could imagine. So why shouldn't we. People can be cruel best to ignore and just think of all the love your new arrival will get. Xx

I am also quite sensitive. We are the same (but our house is 3 bed not 4 bed but its very big so still plenty of room) but it's me that works full time as hubby lost his job and instead of us both sitting at home on benefits while he finds something else I went to work, bit of a shock to the system as I had not worked for 12 years! But a year on we are both enjoying our new rolls, hubby loves being a stay at home dad and is really good at it and I am enjoying being at work.
We have decided to stay doing what we are doing for the time being. Sorry went off subject a bit there!
But my point is, I think people stereotype too much and think people with larger families are scroungers and what worries me is that people will think that of us x

No worries hun. At least you can hold your head up and say that when times got tough you stepped in to support your family. Xx

I told the hubby that I am nervous when it comes to announcing it on facebook ( which i usually do with a scan photo at 12 weeks) as I know people will think we are doing it for the money or some rubbish like that but we do alright financially. Were not rich by no means but we survive okay. The thing that hirts is knowing a couple of my family members will judge me. My sister is planning her 2nd and last time she announced she was pregnant with her 1st 3 months later I announced I was expecting my 5th and even though everyone knew we were trying she still wasnt happy. I am worried we could end up pregnant together again and she might not be happy again. Xx

I too am or going to be TTC again in May for #5. I also have four boys. Are trying for a girl??

My mother thinks that we 'cannot afford' another child. Well we can afford another child, we aren't well off but we are very comfortable. Plus it isn't anyones decision but our own to have another. Three of my older boys are with my past husband and one with my current. I would love to have a girl, and I have a strong feeling that she is here with me now.

It's sad when it's family that judge you more than strangers as they should be supportive no matter what. It's family that I am more worried about, even tho those I am close to know we are ttc I know some will still force a congratulations smile when it comes to it.
We do ok finacially as well, not loaded but do ok. The kids always have treats, are smartly dressed and do not go without x

oh wow, someone else in the same boat as me!! I would love a girl, will not deny that, would be over the moon and yes a dream come true.
We have tried the whole conceiving a girl thing but think that's what is taking me so long to fall pregnant. But if I had another boy I would not resent it, would still love it like I love all my boys but not sure if i'd have some slight diasapointment there or not, what about you? How old are your boys?
I think if people waited until they could "afford" another child they would be waiting for years, if you feel the time is right go for it, money should not be the be all and end all x
