Hi everyone, I'm new to this and it's my first time posting. I am currently about 6 1/2 weeks pregnant with baby number 6!! The day I found out I cried to hubby because it was unplanned. My youngest is 10 months so I am finding it hard coming to terms. Had anyone got any advise?? Thank you

awwwww, I'm sure you are terrified right now, but babe, if you can manage 5 kids, 6 will be a breeze. What a lovely blessing. Sure the first few years will be hard, but once you get past the baby years, you'll love the crazy choas that your (not so) little family brings you.
All the best. Take each day as it comes. You can do it.

I am pregnant with number 4. Unplanned but very much wanted. Little bit of shock and OOPS feeling at first, but now we can't wait. I do agree with previous poster that if you're coping with 5, you'll be ok with 6 too You're already way outnumbered
Good luck hon, I hope it all goes well for you. After this baby's born send DH for the snip before he comes anywhere near you

My story turns out great. My life is so much better for having him in my life.

Thank you lovely ladies I can absolutely cope with my 5 and I know I could cope with 6, just a big shock. I'm so worried about what our families will say also. I haven't even booked in to see a Dr yet even worried what she will say :/

It is hard. families (and people in general) can be just so judgemental over having what they see as 'too many kids' - but its only you and your partner that you have to worry about. As long as you are happy, and provide a loving environment for your children, all is good.
you will be fine. you know you will .... anyone who can handle 5 kids is a saint anyway what is 1 more

Congratulations on your pregnancy! No advice just want to wish you well and try not to listen to the naysayers.

I actually found something strange happened with my no6. People's attitude changed from negative to positive. People just accepted like it was meant to happen.
The biggest tip I can give you is this.
When you go to tell someone start of with a super positive statement. Keep all your comments positive. It really makes it harder for people to be negative to wards you if you sound super excited.
Fake it if you have too. Believe me it will make your life easier.
I am happy to chat anytime.

Well I think you're an amazing mum! Anyone with more than 2 kids is a saint in my eyes.
I'm glad this thread has been able to make you excited about this pregnancy. As other have said - stuff everyone else who has something bad to say, it's none of their business!
