Re: Hurtful comments about family size...

I'm pretty sure my family would be super excited for us, no matter how many I would have. I'm expecting my fourth right now, and honestly, I think it's been hard for me to accept than for everyone else The only thing that my Mom might say is that I should stop because of my varicose veins. They are really bad.

I try to cling to what someone told me recently... no one ever regrets having more children. They only regret the ones they didn't have.

Also, my Grandmother had 12. I asked her once if she wished she could have had less children, and she said no. At that time, birth control was completely taboo in our culture. She said she would never have had less children, but she wished she could have spaced them out a bit more, so she could enjoy each one better, and be a better mother to them.
