My mother was confronted by her mother-in-law. Mother-in-law, of no religion, said to my mom, being pregnant with number 6," when are you going to stop." She answered, "When you say these things, it not only hurts me, it hurts your son, who desires to have more." Mom said, mother-in-law left them alone and mom and dad had 9 of us.
When I was pregnant with number 2 in 1975, a lady old enough to be my mom said it was to early for me to have another. I said, this is our child, not yours.
Then I had a new order catholic woman, say to 2 protestant women that the 4th child I carried was a mistake. She proved herself by saying there was a 5 years gap between the children. Little did that woman know, that the 2 protestant women knew me and spoke up for me, saying they knew different. And this happened in front of our 13 year old daughter. Wow!
Wouldn't it be nice to hear congratulations, like it used to be in the 1950's or such.
Even my doctor told me that my file was thick and I told him that having children is a business.
I really feel for the families of today! They have so much of the world against them and CPS and police knocking on their doors. Doctors who deliver babies and damage women's bladders! So sad!
