Re: Any quiverfull mamas out there?

We are not, though the thought does cross my mind once in a while. We definitely don't use hormonal birth control. Hubby is very adamant about being done having babies. We won't make it permanent though for a while.

And the Duggars have clearly stated that they are NOT part of the quiverfull movement, as it's almost a whole religion in itself. They just don't believe in using birth control. It's a personal choice for them, and not one that they think is right for every person.

Re: Any quiverfull mamas out there?

I have never heard of 'quiverfull' as a religion/bible feeling/etc. I didn't know it was a movement or whatever. Didn't know you could be 'quiverfull'.

I have friends who introduced me to the 'full quiver' idea back when I was in college. They use 'fullquiver' for a lot of internet things, etc. They have 9 children. I don't think they are part of any movement, they just agreed with the scripture about having a full quiver.

We are sorta using that theory. We used condoms right after DD was born (at 6 weeks - hubby deployed at 8 weeks) because I had a CC and I knew I wasn't supposed to get pregnant right away. but now that he's home, we don't use any birth control, DD is 10 months.

It was so hard to get DD. Took us 3 years. We believe that God is in control of how many children we are going to have. and we don't want to try to tell God what to do (not that it'd work anyways - people get preggo on BC all the time). So, we put it in God's hands. If DD is going to get a sibling, it'll happen. And if she's not, then it won't.

Once DD gets a little older, we'll probably start trying more purposefully. But at this point, we're just believing that it'll happen when it's time.

ty for pointing out the religion/movement part of the quiverfull.
i also didnt look @ it as a religion/movement. hmmmmmm, (u got me thinking lol) the way i thought of quiverfull as to being open to what blessings God would love to give us. i think ill call myself 'open to life' insted cuz we dont fallow the religion/movement. we do what we feel God is leading us to do.

I think "open to life" is a better term anyway

This probably fits us better than quiver full actually. I'm not exactly sure what exactly goes for being quiver full as far as beliefs so I hesitate to jump whole heartedly into it.
