Not a rude post! Just curious! How many do you have? Multiples or single births? Do you have a vehicle big enough for all of them? Do they all have their own rooms? Isn't is stressful?

Edit: I'm curious to know what age y'all started having these babies :)

I am pregnant with my 4th.  A lot of people seem to think that is a crazy huge amount of kids.  I disagree. The nurse at my first prenatal checkup totally freaked out and acted like she was going to pass out because 4 is sooooo many.  She just couldn't believe it. lol

 The house was built with 5 but the basement has since been finished into a two bedroom in law apartment. We use it at this point as a playroom/excercise room and the other is a game room for the bigger kids. The laundry room and another kitchen and bathroom are also down there.

Quoting TexasGirl90:

How many bedrooms do you have?


Quoting bcoll:

 Soon to be 8, two sets of twins, yes. No, but they could (aside from the little ones)No more stressful than having one or two. You adjust to your own reality.

I have four living (lost one between MDD and YDD). They were all singletons. We have a van and seats 7 (so we could fit one more child in back if we have another one but I think we are done). My 3 girls share a room and my son is still in our room. He will have his own room when he moves to his big boy bed. It's no more stressful than it was with two kids imo.

We are soon to have 4. Right now the Boys share a room. It matters the sex of this baby to how rooms will go. We plan on getting a bigger place so the oldest has his own. He has adhd and mood disorder so sometimes just needs his own place to calm down. We have a van the 2 youngest in the middle oldest in back. It hasn't been too bad the youngest 2 are 13 months apart and the youngest will be 15 months when this baby is born so ask how adjustments are still then lol

Four and one on the way, all singletons, and not all biologically ours (one each from my husband and me, and then a niece and nephew, and our first together on the way). All ours though :)
