Re: vent: getting tired of people saying, "you're done having kids, right?"

With my 3rd I would get comments that hurt. But since we thought we were infertile we had already told those who asked we weren't having any more. Most people thought we didn't want any more. 12 yrs married no birth control and only 2 kids. I definitely looked when I saw large families but it was because I wanted so bad to have more. Now we are 13 yrs married and have 3 kids. I want more but the intern at the hospital told us we would be risking my life and the babies life to have more. I asked our OB. She wasn't quiet so definite but said she would for sure take the next at 36 weeks to prevent uterine rupture. Our 3 were all term but emergency sections. Before this I had pretty well talked my husband into having 6 kids. I just wish we had been a little better situated money wise when we found out about our last one. A comment my mother would get especially when she was pregnant with her 7th was- God said to populate the world but not all by yourself. I remember now how much she hated that. Each person seemed to think what a wonderfully original thought that was.

My son goes to pre-k with a girl whose mama is pregnant with #4. So that makes 3 under 5 and #4 due any day. I'm always over hearing comments made to her like, "you're pregnant AGAIN????".
In my own personal circle I only know 1 family with more than 2 kids, and they only have 3. It makes me sad that so many people see kids as a hinderance to their own persuits.
