From Five to Eight said...

I'd probably cry (in shock) then call my friend, Sherrie :)
THEN tell my husband!

heartchild said...

I would go speechless and then cry I am sure. I would call everyone I know and start taking donations. LOL

We would be thrilled and scared out of our minds!
(I have been wanting to read this book since it came out :))

MommaofMany said...

I'd be absolutely thrilled, and begin praying for the safety of the babies. Then I'd begin to wonder how much extra skin I'd grow and how much weight I'd gain. :D But I really wouldn't care!

Jenni said...

Well...I would more than double the amount of children I have with just one pregnancy...which is hard to do when you already have 6 children, LOL!

I imagine I would have a certain time-frame of disbelief, then a time-frame of praising God for trusting me with such an amazing gift. Followed by a time-frame of doing research as to how I can help my babies be as healthy as possible in such a pregnancy.
Finally, I would brace myself to stand firm against the onslaught of suggestions from medical caregivers, friends, family, and perfect strangers, all who think I should have the pregnancy reduced because it is "too risky". Nothing is too risky for God. He knows the plans He has for us, and for our unborn children.

Tina in IN said...

I would probably sit in shock truth be known. Ask the doc HOW that was possible. Dh and I weren't supposed to have the three we have, and do to dh's fear of more, well we can't have more...But I would LOVE more, so later I would rejoice, cry and start planning!

Michelle Marie said...

I would cry, and then pray, pray, pray!

Momma to 1 Looking for #2 said...

I would rejoice because it would mean that we had a medical miracle...:)

Hilary said...

First... recover from shock. Then tell my husband. I'd call a few friends to start praying, then eventually (when I knew things were progressing well) post some cryptic hint on my blog. ;) I'd also start stocking up on cheap baby clothes and diapers and commission someone to build stacking cribs to somehow accommodate the babies in our tiny house!

Cathy said...

We have 5 so far and we get lots of comments about that, so I would probably order one of these shirts for me and my husband:


Cactus Flower said...

I'm sure I would cry and laugh altogether :-) But, realistically, I'd probably start on a bunch of freezer meals right away.

Faith said...

I would praise the Lord on High that He found me fit to be pregnant with so many blessings, after all it would be a miracle! Then I would sit back, take a deep breath and pray that God would give me the strength to parent seven itty-bitty babies who may have disablilities along with the 6 I already have. And then I would change the way I eat completely to give them the best chance. I really, really would like to read this book!

Jennie Lou said...

I know my prayer life and health seeking would go up several notches. And then I'd start planning. I'm hopelessly a list maker.

Vicki Miller said...

Do you want my honest answer???

If so, this is what I would do.
I would go check myself into the nearest crazy house!!

Ok so after I was there and the shock wore off. I would find the best cosmetic dr to fix me after wards then I would tell Bryce!

Then I would tell my family but since I would already be in a crazy house they would not mind too much:)

Ok this is how I think I would react, but seriously WOW is all I would be able to say for OH 20 years!!!!

debhmom3 said...

Invest in lots of diapers and some larger clothes. :)

Jubilee said...

I'd ignore the new Consumer Protection laws and start gathering used baby stuff like crazy. And I'd thank the Lord for blessing our family. Just think - the kids could each hold one and there'd still be one for me!

Shell said...

Oh my goodness. Jesus help me! That's what I would say.

I have a hard time carrying my babies past 22wks so, I'd be frightended of losing them. I'd pray alot, ask for church and family prayer. And get ready for my family to double quickly. And then I'd start praising God for a miracle!!

I'd pick names and have all the kids pick their new buddy. Because I'd need alot of help!!!!


Gretchen said...

I would stock up on books, movies, and ice cream because I'm going to be on bed rest for approximately 9 months.

I would also patent bunk(bed)cribs because no way would I fit 7 cribs in our spare bedroom.

I would also beg, demand, and plead for people to send their hand-me-downs our way.

I would also have to make a doctor's appointment for my husband because he would need some strong medication to cope with me long before the babies arrived : )

Ransomed~Redeemed said...

We have prayed for another batch of twins and even triplets. I'd praise the Lord and leap for joy. We would be thrilled! How amazing to be given such a great gift! We wuld be so pleased. I'd be sad as I doubt you can sling /breastfeed that many children. I could wear twins or triplets and have my 7 year old twins each sling a baby. :-) What an adventure. Alida w4

Lori in KY said...

Don't enter me, I've already got the book, I just wanted to say I LOVED it too! What a great family!

Carri said...

I would cry, then begin to pray, after getting over the shock of it all I would rejoice. Children are a blessing and the Lord has proven Himself so faithfull to us as we went from 4 to 9 in just a couple months and I know He would again.


Chas said...

Oh I would SHOUT, and cry and squeal and cry and shout some more... :)
I would love this book.
