Honestly I think itwas only because she had medically issues and cried ALL thetime..

Can I join or save for later? I'll have 4 come October and could definitely use the advice from the moms who've been juggling longer :P. Also we're not sure if this will be our last or not but I'd love to read more from moms with more than 4 to help in that decision making as well down the road. :)



And congrats on the ttc #5!!!!

In your opinion, did your pregnancies get rougher on your body the older you got?

Honestly no, however thi pregnancy has been my toughest simply because of the possible miscarriage, as far as my actual body goes, i feel fine though. My last three I have had a lot more MS than my first 4 but thats it lol.

I had fairly decent pregnancies with my first three...only problem I can report is with number 3, I had a lot of stress and anxiety due to my husband's ex girlfriend trying to cause a lot of turmoil in our life, so I wasn't eating like I should have been and not gaining weight, but baby girl turned out fine.



With number four, I had a lot of spotting the entire pregnancy, I kept pulling the muscle that runs vertical along the front of my stomach, my left leg would go numb a lot because of where biddy was positioned and I was so much more tired with number 4 then I was the previous kiddos.
All to which I chalked up to my age, lol.

hhahaha...damn straight!
Most parents can just throw the kids out side and tell them to go enjoy the weather..."it's too pretty of a day to stay cooped up inside"....
we can't do that here...the yellow flies, black flies and mosquitoes are so overwhelming, it's depressing....We literally have to RUN to our truck just to evade from getting bit all up!
