  • I think if you have this baby, you will wonder how your lives were ever complete without him there.


    They just instantly become part of you life and you cant live without them.
    I would never about my dh and I child. I would love them too much.

  • adoption is always a great choice =) there are a LOT of woman out there unable to have children of their own, it would be a blessing to them...

  • I have four, but they are not all close at age so it isn't too bad for me. Mine are 15, 6 and twin 7 month olds. Good luck in whatever you decide!

  • I have 5 kids 8,6,5,3,17mos. My husband works alot of hours during the day as well. Your 8 yr old is in school so that should help you part of the day. To have another they just seem to fit right in to your day to day life. Yes the first few mounts are hard. Put the sleepless nights do not last forever. If you bottle feed your 8 yr can help with some feedings like when you are trying to make dinner and the baby wants to eat have your 8 yr feed the baby , this works if you bf to just pump.

    What do you tell your kids and how do they understand what you are doing. What if something happens to you if you abort .

  • MJ_BN_FE,

    that was kinda rude of you..people have freedom of choice...dont try being mean to them because they have freedom of choice...there are some people that are for abortion and others that are against it...

    just because someone else wants a baby and cant have one doesnt mean someone should say "well dont have an abortion, think about the other people that cant have kids"

    people have freedom of choice..im against abortion..but im not against people's choices...

  • Only you and your husband know how much you can handle. I have 4 kids as well. But, the oldest is 13 and the youngest is 6 months. I CANNOT imagine having so many little tiny kids. But, that is just me.

    I am very pro-choice. However, I could not terminate a preganncy with my husband. But again that is just me.

    If you do choose to terminate, do it while you are very early. In my opinion, you will deal with the situation better if you are early. Good luck to you.

  • I agree with the first anon. Once the baby comes (if you choose to have it) you will wonder how you ever thought you could live without him/her. not that it will be easy but after a couple months, when everyone is in a routine, the baby will just fit right in. I have 4 now. When my 4th was born my other kids were 3 1/2, 4 1/2 and almost 6. It was rough. Only one was in school (and that was half day) but school ended a couple months after the baby was born so then they were all home. Now they are 8, 7, 6 and turning 3 (in 2 weeks). The older 3 are in school all day and it's just me and the 3yo so it's been nice. She's a riot to have around and I can't imagine not having her.
    I just found out the other day that I'm pregnant with #5 and was terrified because I'm so used to what we have now.
