 I think you should do what you want to do!!!  Don't worry about what they think or say, you worry about what you & your SO want!  I am having number 8!!  It'll be my last.  I come from a large family.

It should be a decision between you & hubby. Not your family. Have as many kids as you want!

If you can afford more comfortably without putting any of your living children out, go for it. And if you have the space and patience. 

I don't. 2 was my limit.

at the end of the day that is your decision not your family.  I have 3 biological kids and now i am pregnant with twins.  My family probably think i'm crazy for even getting pregnant again but that's their problem.  They don't have to live in my house and they don't have to take care of my kids so if you want more children even after you have this baby that's your decision.

I think it's your business how many kids you want to have. Why tell them anything at all? I say let the bump do the talking.

only you decide :)  I have 5, my family all thinks I'm nuts, but they have no idea how much fun a family of 7 is.  we don't have a lot of money, and just 3 bedrooms... but it's like a party everyday. :)  we have each other, and lots of fun.  I still work part time (wish I didn't) and my hubby works nights.  our schedule is crazy, I feel like all I do is cook, clean and laundry... but I wouldn't change a thing!!!!!!!!!!

 It's hard not having your family's support, but at the end of the day, it's between you and your SO.  I have a friend who has 6 kids and whose husband is on the road a lot.  They're nowhere near her family, so I know it's hard but that is - by all appearances - one happy "little" family.

my husband and I have 2 biological kids and decided for a 3rd we adopted...it may not be an option for everyone but we were able to help a single mom with her unplanned pregnancy and even more have a beautiful and wonderful baby boy

You have to do what is best for you and your family. If it is your hearts desire to have more then go for it.  I have found it worth while to not tell everyone including some family about what I plan to do.  I have 5 children of my own and my husband wants 2 more.  Many people are like you have too many as it is and that's more than enough.  However, I know that my family is blessed and we will never have more than we can handle.  So I say go for it.  There will always try to be someone to discourage you so always go with your heart.
