Pregnancy and Parenting Guide

Do you remember the very first time you said “ Honey, I am pregnant” to your hubby when the pregnancy test kit showed a double line? I still remember that particular day vividly. We were at the fertility clinic and the urine test results showed a positive.  Hubby and I had gone through years of infertility and I had gone for fertility treatments to conceive Alycia. Throughout my pregnancy with Alycia, I was worried sick every single day that I would suffer a miscarriage. I surfed the internet very often to read about early pregnancy, how the fetus was growing, symptoms of miscarriage, birth and labor and much more. I had even printed out articles on pregnancy which filled up 3 thick arch files and read them religiously everyday to check my baby’s development.

How Do You Cope With 14 Kids?

I was watching channel 77 with my gals several days ago and there was a program called ‘Kids By The Dozen’. It featured one couple with 14 kids! I can’t even imagine my life with baby no. 3 though I know the day will one day come true as my hubby loves kids – the more the merrier so says my hubby. Montessorimum has posted in her blog that the trend now is that most families have 3 kids. Well, maybe 3 is still manageable but more than 3?? I wonder how these families cope physically, emotionally and especially financially. I really admire mothers with more than 2 kids yet manage to cope so well in every aspect.
