ok yes i have 4 kids and yes we expecting one more, and yes for some that is alot! i get it. but im so tired of the negitive comments from total strangers. like yesterday, i was taking my 5 year old to school, we sat down at a table so he could eat before class, and one of the other moms comes up and sits with us, no biggie. she notices that im pregnant and askes "o is this your second"? i said no its our 5th. then rude as hell she says " girl your nuts! i feel bad for you" then i said lol dont feel bad it was planned, then she blurts out "f**k that! your crazy as hell" really? really? was that called for at all? yes i get the omg your crazy what were you thinking all the time. and id love to say no im not crazy and i was thinking that id love to have a large family, my kids are well taken care of, their needs are more then met, we dont ask for help or get any type of gov. help. so whats the big deal? ugghhh end vent! lol

Im just going to say...get use to it. My MIL has 5 kids, my SO being her oldest, and she still gets told shes crazy for having that many even though all but 2 have moved out. Just brush it off, if its want you and your DH want then thats all that matters.

I hear this from family already about us trying to conceive baby #4. I can only imagine it'll get worse when i'm actually pregnant. Peoples big deal with me seems to be my age, (i'm 25). But I say f**k em. They don't pay my bills or contribute to my household in any way so their opinions are not needed.

ugghh right! its like did i ask for your opinion? but ppl still feel that you need to hear their opinion. i try to ignore it, but its so hard when it happens all the time lol i cant even take my "group" (as my kids have been called) to the store with out hearing, wow are they all yours? or wow your busy, or the ever famous, id hate to be you, how do you still have all your hair. lol
