“You don’t look old enough to have 10 children!"

"Well, my oldest is only 9…"

Besides having 10 children (and counting), our family is known for having children super close in age. So close, in fact, that seven of them are the same age as a sibling for a certain part of the year.

With one set of fraternal twins and three sets of "Irish Twins," our household is full of noise, messes, and laughter.

My husband and I are both the oldest of large families (6 and 10 children). We talked about children before marriage, but I don’t think I ever wanted a certain number.

Model Posts Photos Showing Off Baby Bump, But Nobody Believes She’s 6 Months Pregnant Belle Lucia, an Australian model, is six months pregnant with her first child. She's very fit, so her bump doesn’t “pop” very much. And, of course, the trolls had to chime in.

Wondering if you're pregnant ? Take the Clearblue quiz to see if those symptoms could be an early indicator of pregnancy . If you test early and get a ‘Not Pregnant ’ result it is possible that the level of pregnancy hormone may not yet be high enough to be detected.

I ' m pregnant with my fifth child and while I am certainly excited and love this baby very much, I can't help but be a little bit embarrassed, too. The truth couldn’t be less boring and although my sex life and reproductive choices should not be up for discussion, having a lot of kids certainly puts it out there.

I do remember my husband suggesting having 10 because his mother had 10.

I scoffed and said I was "too old." My oldest child ended up being born just before my 26th birthday.

God must have heard me laugh and in just under 10 years of marriage, we were blessed with 11 pregnancies. That includes seven singletons, one set of twins, two miscarriages, and one due here shortly. Is it tiring to be constantly pregnant?

Thankfully, my body handles pregnancy well, and believe it or not, I still get thrilled with each positive test.

I’m starting to recognize the early signs and usually get a positive test before a missed cycle. We can’t surprise our family and friends though because by now, everyone expects the news. My husband isn’t really surprised either because it’s been a normal part of our entire marriage. I’m sure that sounds so foreign to most people, but since it’s all we’ve ever known, the experience of going a few years without a pregnancy would be extremely foreign to us.

I Want My Kids to Be Healthy, but That Doesn't Mean I'm Feeding Them Only Organic Food

I Want My Kids to Be Healthy, but That Doesn't Mean I'm Feeding Them Only Organic Food While I believe it's important to teach my kids about healthy eating and living an overall healthy lifestyle, I refuse to become obsessed with feeding my kids all-organic food. I think it's great that some parents are able to ride the all-organic train - more power to you! But after years of parenting, I've found that it's just too much for me and my family to worry about. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Am I Pregnant Again ? Pregnancy test results. A little bit about me : I am a stay at home mom of 2 kids under 2, Ellerie and Eli! I have been married to my highschool sweetheart (Kyle) for 3 years now and we are just sharing parts of our life with you.

I just found out that I am pregnant again after a c-section 6 months ago. Thanks for asking this question! i was searching this website for anything similar to what i am going through now. I ' m pregnant again after only having my daughter 2 months ago via C-section.

Of course managing so many littles has its challenges.

Even though they may drive me batty at times, I can’t imagine being happy doing anything else. Some of the challenges are having multiple babies in diapers, finding more than one sitter at a time, having to book more than one hotel room, driving and parking a 15-passenger van, washing tons of laundry, always cleaning up messes, etc., etc. Oh! And did I mention the staring and comments we get out in public?

The "You must have your hands full" comments when I’m out with just two or three of the children are always amusing.

If they only knew! Once when I was out with two of my girls, someone asked if I was going to try for a boy. I had to break the news to her I already had six boys.

How long does it really take to get pregnant?

How long does it really take to get pregnant? You want to have a baby. Will it take weeks to get pregnant? Months? Years? Doctors explain.

Congratulations, kudos, and woo hoo – you're pregnant ! In those rare moments when you're not dancing on air or completely freaking out, you may wonder what you need to do next. Here are the most important things to do as you wait to meet your baby.

Yes , again . But being pregnant is a little like having a chronic illness; it seems to encourage people to say some very silly things to you, and because you are in a somewhat fragile state, you don’t just laugh them off as you might otherwise.

We’ve also had a few rude encounters. From unpleasant stares to statements like, "Did you have them all with the same partner?!" or "Seven kids? That’s terrible!"

One of the perks of having so many littles is having more than one child on the same mental/physical level. Because of that they usually play well together and enjoy doing the same things. Another thing I enjoy is all the excitement we experience at Christmas, birthdays, and family trips. I actually gave birth to a party!

We get asked at times whether or not we plan on having more children. The honest truth? I really don’t know. Due to complete placenta previa and a cord issue during my twin pregnancy I’ve already had to have two C-sections. Thankfully, I found a great team of midwives at our university’s hospital and I’ve had the opportunity to VBAC since then. I’m sure by now I’m one of their regulars and folks at the ultrasound office even recognize me and my chart.

Turns out I am pregnant again after my miscarriage. Yes , absolutely! I miscarried in May 2010 and went 7 weeks w/o having another period. Again all my tests were negative, but I knew as I had multiple symptoms; particularly sore breasts which I have never had except during pregnancy !

Yes , it was a little unexpected, but it was meant to be :D. So you got pregnant 5 months after having a baby! AWESOME, and CONGRATULATIONS! When you tell people that you are pregnant again be sure to add how happy you are that your kids will be close in age.

Some people have expressed concern about my health, but the rest of my pregnancies have been complication-free and full-term.

However, I know anything can happen in the future and if other complications come our way, we’ll wisely consider our family planning options.

Until then, I reckon we’ll continue to take them as they come and celebrate each positive pregnancy test and the unique little life it brings. Children are a blessing indeed.

Stephanie Swedberg, who is 33 weeks pregnant, saw a fully dressed mother wading through the water screaming for help. “I didn’t realize anything was off until I saw one of the moms fully dressed, sprinting into the water and screaming for somebody to help her son,” Swedberg, a former lifeguard, told Fox 9. “Then I looked over and I saw one of the boys unable to keep his head above the water. He wasn’t screaming… he was just thrashing around, bobbing a little bit.” Swedberg told the news outlet she handed her own son off to someone and headed over to the boy to grab him.
