Just a question...how many of you ladies have 5 children? Or going on your 5th baby? Is it any harder than it is with 3 or 4? The reason I'm asking is because we just had our 4th baby in may & debating on having a 5th down the road. Years down the road. I have doubts but i kind of want another baby down the road. Just would like some of your opinions on having 5 children. Thanks.

I have 3 now, and I know it wasn't much different than having 2. We're probably gonna have another one, so I'm hoping its not any different from having 3.

I guess we'll find out!

I just had my 5th in March. My worst transition was going from 2-3 kids. Everything else was a breeze. All mine are pretty close together too.

I thought it was tougher going from 2 to 3 lol. I wonder what going from 4-5 would be like?

We have 5 kids.  Honestly, there really hasn't been a huge difference in things since adding baby #3.  Once you find a schedule/routine that works.....you just need to stick to it.  Our 4th and 5th babies are 12 months apart in age - by choice.

Yeah me too. 2-3 was a harder transition for me as well. My first 2 are 3 yrs apart. My 2nd & 3rd are 4 yrs apart and my 3rd to 4th are 2 yrs apart.

Going from 1 to 2 was HARD, but I went from 2 to 3 without blinking. By that point, I was already used to doing things more than once, so having to do it a third time wasn't any harder, plus one was already potty trained.

My mom told me going having 3 was easier than having 2. Now, I don't know if I'd say easier, but I would say it didn't make much difference.
