Tips for women pregnant with their fourth child

Beware of the comments you will receive! We received so many comments like:

You know what causes that don't you?

We had three girls so it was common to hear, "Trying for a boy now!"

Aren't you done yet?

Don't you think you should stop now?

But as far as having a fourth child...I was pregnant with my fourth when I was turning 32. I had three girls ages 5, 3 and 2. I was working more in getting my oldest to help me with different tasks according to her age.

Even though my oldest no longer napped, I napped when the younger two napped and my oldest would have quiet time in her room or on the floor in my room reading, coloring or playing quietly.

I made freezer meals so we'd have meals once baby was born.

Those are the things coming to mind right now.

    you are blessed to be having more babies.

    I have a 20 years old son a 19 year old son who just turned 19 on the 15th of April and a 16 year old girl. And I'm trying to have another baby but it just not happening.

    I don't care about other's comments but as long as we can afford it,especially in this difficult times then I don't think there should be a problem.

      It doesn't stop with the fourth child, I'm pregnant with my ninth and get those comments all the time. Usually I just ignore them.

        I came from a family with three siblings. I am the youngest. Even though my siblings and i are several years apart in age, we are really close. I couldnt have more than one child due to female problems and Cancer. Those of you who have alot of children are very blessed to me. Children are a gift from God. Enjoy them. Dont feel bad about having more than one. Its a blessing from God. Thats how i look at it. God bless you all. I love all of you moms strength and courage.

            It amazes me the comments that are made that are so much different with a 4th child vs. a 3rd. When I get told "you know how that happens right?" I just smile really big and say rather loudly. "Yes! Yes I do!" and kinda giggle when I am done. Because I am pretty sure that my first 3 kids were made the same way LOL!
