Bless you! just ignore them - they aren't worth gettin upset about (I know thats easy to say)
and as for the benefits like wtc if you're entitled to it claim it! who cares what they think!?
they're just jealous - you've got something a lot of people haven't - a big loving family and you manage it without being a layabout!
good on u!

I admire you! I've got 1 and 1 on the way and I'm struggling! For these people to jump to the conclusions of benefits so quickly, it shows how their minds work. They must be the type of people to bleed the system dry, not you! I personally would confront them and explain that you don't claim anything. They're are weak bullies who would get a shock if you stood up for yourself. That would soon stop the gossip. Also though, I agree with Kat88, you are likely to be entitled to some benefits, why don't you claim them, those daft people chatting about you probably are and so are most parents in this country. Why not you? Don't be proud, every penny helps!
Congrats on number 6.

Firstly, congratulations on your 6th baby! Secondly, as everyone else has said, you have nothing to be ashamed of. If you can cope and give a happy family life to 5 children and another on the way you are doing a fanstastic job. It is awful the way people judge when they have no idea about you, but you know you are doing a good job so just keep your chin up and ignore them. Also definately see if you are entitled to benefits - there is nothing wrong with claiming them when you are entitled to them.

To hell with what people think and say its really not their business, i think you should feel free to tell them exactly what you think if they ever had the balls to say their nasty comments to your face. They're probably just jealous as you're happy living your life to suite you with your lovely family - tell them to suck it up
Life is to short to waste time on negative people so go on and please yourself as that what they do.
Good luck with this pregnancy, no stressing take it easy Axx
