    I thought I'd start a thread for those of us with an above average # of kids. I'm due with surprise baby #5 :cloud9: after a 8 year gap! So far so good, feeling like this is familiar but nothing I can't handle :)

    All my kids except my 15 yo son are excited. My son is slow to deal with change, and if last time is any judge it will be when the baby smiles that he accepts it and starts to fall in love. He has aspergers syndrome so I just take it as it comes with him.

    My 13 year old was a bit indifferent, but recently he's starting to take an interest. He's become really protective too, won't let me carry anything! :winkwink:
    My 9 year old wavers between misery and excitement. She thinks I won't have any time for her, doesn't want another baby etc. Then the next moment she's excited, talking about names, development etc:wacko:
    My 4 year old can't wait! She's so excited and asks every day if it's March yet! :haha:

    Kinda sounds like my kids...my 15 year old is really indifferent she is really into her own life and making plans for here future and trying to decide college or Air Force , I am making her sound selfish. She is a awesome kid and will be almost 16 when the baby gets here and she absolutely loves kids so I know she will be great once the baby gets here. My 14 year old she is excited and says this means she won't be the middle kid anymore since I will have 4. LOL My son is 7 and all he tells me is if I have a girl he is moving to his dads. But the other day he said if its a girl he isn't touching it but will still live with his mom. I think he is really worried about him not being my baby anymore....

    Hi all can i join in :), We are expecting much surprised baby number 4 in Feb a little boy.

    My eldest Layla is 5 and half My 2nd is Finnley he is 3 and half and Oscar is 19 months so will have 4 under 6 ..
    Kids are excited allthough really not sure how Oscar will react as he is still a Baby himself so that worries us a little, My Family took it real Bad and suggested an Abortion because there prats and act and say strange things sometimes but they have all come around now i think well they seem to be ok with us anyway lol.

    Iam tired and finding it hard so far as Oscar is a poorly baby and still doesnt really sleep all the way through .. But feel very blessed to have another Healthy baby on its way :).

    How is every 1 ?. x
