Why are big families so taboo???

I just found out that I am pregnant with baby #5, and some of the looks and comments have made me question myself with having such a large family. My husband and I have discussed us having a large family and we are truly happy about this baby, but it doesn't make it any easier when you are put on the spot and feel like you have to explain yourself to others. Part of it might be that I had a difficult pregnancy last time. But everyone is healthy. Does anyone else have larger families, and have you experienced any of this before?

    Pfft! Big families are great! Congrats on #5!!!!!
      Don't listen to others. It's you and your husband's decision and what makes you happy. I think big families are great.
