  • because people in society now adays think that one or two children is the acceptible amount. I perosnaly only wanted two. But I think it's great if other familys want more, less, or even none. It's your own personal choice.. Just smile and go on. :O)

  • People are smart asses. When my first was 6 months we got preggo right away with the second....yes planned. And someone asked, in a joking way, Do I need to teach you how that happened. When I said we planned it, it kind of shut people up. But people just don't get it.

  • You are blessed and children are a blessing! You are bringing a new life into this world that is a precious gift ! Who cares what others think! I would love to have had more but my soon to be ex took that from me yrs ago. I am thankful for my boys though! They are a gift from God and I am blessed!

  • That's really nasty. I would tell them to mind their business and you can say that you planned them all, so yeah you do know what causes it! LOL

  • I have 3 too. I didn't get too many because my family wanted me to have a boy. I finally did with the third. But people did say "your done now right" It would annoy me.

  • Think of it this way...opinions are like assholes, everyone is bound to have one. ;)
    I'm pregnant with our 3rd too..and trust me....some people had thier comments..and I just reply with a smile and say "Well, were happy about it" and just move on to another subject. Its not thier kid, not thier responsibility and its not like they have to pay for it,lol.

  • I got the same comments when I was prego with #3 - especially since the middle child is only 14 mo older than he is.

    "Haven't you learned what causes that?" - yeah, but it's just too much fun to stop!
    "You know, they have books on where babies come from/aren't you on BC" - DH has super sperm. He can look at me from across the room and say "F*ck you" and I get pregnant.
    "Is this it for you?" Eh, I'm trying for my own football team. I have a better chance at having more grandbabies than you, anyway.
