Sophia has an announcement to make!

She wants to tell everyone that she is going to be a big sister!:-)
WE ARE EXPECTING!!!! WE found out in January, things are going fairly well so far. We were starting to talk about getting pregnant again, but probably waiting until the summer or fall. We certainly didn't expect it to happen as fast as it did. We are thrilled, the kids are happy although I am not sure that they completely understand what is going on
We have been to high risk OB as well as the regular OB. High risk OB basically said, yeah I definitely have the risks for HELLP and pre-eclampsia again. But she said is that my only risk factor is that I have done it before. SO unfortunately there is nothing that I can do to decrease my chances of getting it again, but we are praying hard that it doesn't happen again. I certainly am praying for full term and healthy with no complications, and while I am at it, for a VBAC will you join me?
I am feeling ok although definitely tired, and quite often weak as I am vomiting a lot. The OB that I am seeing now doesn't typically do anything for the nausea so at this point I am just trying to deal with it.
We finally started telling people this week as we are 13 weeks tomorrow! Our due date is October 7th:-)
