    I would have had 10 kids if life & DH would have let me but big roadblocks like infertility, divorce, job loss, etc kept getting in my way.

    I grew up in a large family and relate well to the older Duggar girls as I was the second mama to my siblings....I am glad I was able to help raise them but I had no idea how to just take care of me when I went off to college.

    Their are pros and cons to all of it. If I could raise 10 kids according to my standard of raising kids, I would, but it's just not possible.

    This is a somewhat old thread but I find it funny... not so much "haha" funny, more ironic. I can kinda sympathize with the comments this family must get and we only have 2 living children! Growing up I had a great aunt I never met and a neighbor down the road, one with a dozen boys and one with a baker's dozen. Both kept trying for a girl and that is how they ended up with so many. When we told my grandma (dad's side) that we were going to be trying... she wasn't supportive TBH. She kept saying that if we didn't get our girl we were just going to keep trying like they did. After we lost our angel girl she asked if we were going to try again and I told her that, pending test results, yes we planned to try again. She was like "And if it's a boy are you going to try again?" I love her to death but I gotta admit the comments are irritating the fire outta me.

    Anyway, if as a PP said life allowed (and finances), I would love to have 5 living children. Hubby and I talked kids long before we were even engaged and we both agreed that 5 would be a good number, but we also agreed that financially 3 was probably smarter. Actually hubby wants "a baseball team" lol, but no. No thanks lol. The two I have drive me nuts at times lol. I couldn't imagine THAT many kids.. I'd lose my mind lol. The plan is to stop after one more but honestly a part of me isn't sure I am ready to close and lock that door, regardless of whether we get boy or a girl. BUT when I dreamed of having 3 I said I wanted 2 boys and a girl. I actually wanted boy, girl, boy(to avoid the middle child syndrome thing. The boys would be the oldest and the baby of the family and the girl would be one of a kind )... but whatever, lol. I have the two boys... just need the girl now.

    Hi twointwo, that was my dream family too! B, G, B. The comments are awful arn't they and so hurtful. Even though I got DG I still get stupid comments like I bet you are so happy you got a girl and now you can stop having kids as you got your girl which makes me feel like my boys are not as cherished. Arrrggghh!!! X

    That is awful! I am sorry to hear that! How many do you have? In my case, yes I've been preg 4 times and going #5, BUT I only have 2 livng children so I just don't get the fuss... esp from my grandma! She had 4! *shrug* All I can figure is it's because of my the 2 women I mentioned before and several ppl in my family tends to have big families in general. Either way I don't get it. In my book 3 kids isn't a big family, and the way I see it- I don't care if you want to be the next duggar family. If that is what you want and you can afford it then go for it! Ya know? I just don't understand how or why people seem to think they have a say in the number of kids you have. They aren't the one raising them or footing the bill so it's really no ones business. Sorry, kinda got off on a rant there lol.

    Lol, loving the "well maybe" hahahaha. You must be a very calm person to not say anything back. No one has had the sac to come out and actually say that I "must be done" yet. So far I still get "so are you planning to have any more?" some are sincere, those are usually the ones in my inner circle which have been asking in regards to my recent loss and they are mostly cheering me on, but most have this look on there face when they say it that I can't quite explain... almost like they know what they want to hear and want to see if I "answer right", lol. The rest just assume because my youngest is 5 that we are done (I'm guessing. They don't ask so I figure that is what they think). Did I plan for my youngest to be 5 and starting over? Not really, I think it actually worked out well, but no it wasn't planned. I just always said I didn't want two in diapers at the same time (barring twins) and my boys are high functioning autistic and both didn't potty train until around 4 and a half. Anyway, people and their opinions can be so annoying sometimes.
