I thought I would introduce myself so if I mention something you will know what I am talking about.

I will be married to Andrew for 6 years Feb 11th. We have a 3 year old, Xavier, and he will be 4 February 15th!

I had Xavier by c-section and 3 weeks later I developed a DVT and Pulmonary Embolism....nearly killed me so I will be on lovenox shots (blood thinners) every day in my belly throughout the pregnancy and after.

Nov '10 I had gastric bypass surgery and am down a whole human, I have lost 118lbs since surgery! YAY!

I am hoping for a VBAC with this pregnancy, I am calling my doctor first thing Monday Morning and trying to get into see him this week since I have a lot going on with my body and tons of questions since this is going to be a higher risk pregnancy!

We are thrilled to be pregnant. I still can not believe it!

Way to go Nikki!!! Happy for you and your pregnancy. Your weight loss is commendable! It's hard to not identify yourself as "big boned" or whatnot and then give yourself an excuse to not give it you all. You are awesome.
