There is a time after a woman has so many children (4 or so) that people just assume she is in a perpetual state of being “with child.” I have come to understand this over the years. It used to really bother me when someone would ask me when the next one was due. Partly because of my sensitivity of always having the baby bump (even with no baby inside). But I have come to rely on the fact that when my youngest is about 1 year old people are going to just assume that it is time for another one.
Having a large family opens one up to much attention and thus scrutiny. My favorite question is, “How many children do you plan on having?”
To which I have answered, “We have had 5 children in 10 years. Does that really sound like family planning?”
Before my husband and I were married , and before we had ever heard of the Duggars, my husband and I decided that we would allow the LORD to bless us with however many children He saw fit. That being said, I would like to make an announcement (hee hee).
We are expecting our six child! I have no official due date but am assuming November. Usually we don’t announce it this early but I would appreciate the prayers of my fellow Christians for a healthy mommy and baby.
