My ex husband was done at 2, but I really fought for number three. Then with number four he just came around and I ended up having twins. Which was hard and then we ended up divorced. People who have twins are 50% more likely to get divorced and we definitely fit the statistic. It just was so stressful. And now he hates me because he has to pay child support for 5 kids. But whatever, it's not like I tricked him into having them. He knew what he was doing, and he refused to pay child support until the state garnished his wages. And he gets to have sex with a girl who is half his age now (she is 23 and he is 40!-we have an 11 year old together!) and he hated me when we were married anyway he just was too scared to do anything about it. We should have never gotten married, I was only 19 and definitely wasn't thinking straight! But he also knew I wanted 6 kids, he just overlooked it because he thought I was hot. We were married for 11 years and had five kids. I never, ever thought we would get divorced!

I love having a big family, we are done after this one though. We just can't afford any more.

I think (hope at least) we will wait a few years before having our next.. having a kid every year take a toll on one's bodily selfesteem lol.. I"m like to look good again for a little while before the next one..

I got so lucky. I said "I want to get a midwife and have a home birth" and he said "Okay." Lol

Nice!! I am sure he will come around. He just needs some time and I'm not going to push him about it because I don't want him to feel like I pushed it on him.



At least there will a couple of us in here having home births :) My other DD buddies everyone did a hospital birth.

With my second I said that to my husband and he said to me " OK, but lets drop the midwife.. I"ve birthed goats I know what I"m doing"...



It all went well.. :)

I'm totally jealous of the big families. I always wanted 4-5, my husband wanted 2. We were going to discuss a 3rd when my youngest turned 5. So even though this baby is not coming at the best timing, I am so thrilled that I will get 3.



Everyone wants me to tie my tubes this time but I just don't want to...I just don't want to admit that I am done. I have to respect my husband's wishes which means no more, but it sucks to think this is my last time pregnant.



And I love that I can vicariously live through so many home births in this group! I always wanted a home water birth but I'm too high risk. I love watching the videos, reading the birth stories, and seeing the pictures, there is so much beauty there

Haha I'm not craving any of the same things that I did with my daughter. With her I wanted greasy pizza and greasy fries ect. This time around the only thing I can stomach is bland foods like white rice, bread, water, apples, plain popcorn, ect. Lol

My oldest daughter August was my most expensive cravings. I wanted surf and turf ALWAYS. I could have eaten the local Red Lobster out of house and home. Steak with Shrimp, Lobster, Crab Legs you name it! I CRAVED IT!



When I was pregnant with Alexandria I wanted greasy cheese pizza with hot sauce ALWAYS. It was so damn good smothered in hot sauce. Greek salads also, I could have eaten feta and black olives like mad.



With my son Grayson I wanted Aero Bars lol. I am not a huge chocolate eater but man did those suckers hit the spot. I sent my husband out MANY times to grab me one cause I just had to have it. I also ate sushi like crazy with my son. I was only allowed to eat the cooked stuff but I think my husband and I would take the kids 2-3 times a month just to satisfy my sushi craving.



With this one I want pizza and hot sauce again lol. I just sent the hubby and my oldest daughter off to the local Pizza Pizza to obtain me a meatball sandwich and garlic sticks with cheese lol.



Ugh the cravings have begun! On the plus side I have not felt to sick this round and only puked once. I am usually pretty sick for a good month. Totally happy about that. Although I could do without the never ending tiredness... That shit needs to go lol.
