  • I have no idea.. I have one and he's 3 and couldn't think of adding even one more to the mix -
    I think it depends on the support you have, the kids you have and the financial means you are paying for all of them with.

  • I married a man with 5 children and I have one of my own. Are you a blended family? why do you keep having more children if you have doubts about "keeping up" with them?? Is it a religious thing?. Each and every one is an individual as you know and as they get older it gets even more complicated.

  • Maybe stop having more till you're ready and think you have enough patients for more

  • I don't think I'd have any hair left if I had 7 kids. No way could I ever imagine having that many. But if the older ones are old enough, have them help around the house and help with the younger kids.

  • Well, if you're having a hard time now and will be super busy with 8 (I assume by "expecting more" you meant you are expecting #8), why don't you get an IUD put in after you have your baby? It's not permanent, but it will prevent pregnancy until you are willing to have another...if you want another.
