Hi ladies

My name is Kristen. We weren't planning on having anymore kids so it was quite a shock to find out I was expecting #6 while in the ER last week being treated for dehydration. I *thought* I had a stomach bug, but I was wrong

I have 5 kids (15, 13, 8, 5, and almost 3). My last pregnancy was a nightmare, as I have a very rare antibody problem that's difficult to explain (similar to RH but different). The problem with my condition is that it gets more aggressive with each sensitized pregnancy. We had an early pregnancy loss in Aug of 2011 so i'm cautiously expecting. I don't have an exact due date yet, as i'm waiting to hear back from my OB with some test results (for something non pregnancy related), so i'm sure he'll schedule a dating u/s next week. I'm guessing my due date will be late June, but there is a very high chance i'll be having another preemie.

If you know me from the Jan 2010 board and are on my FB please don't say anything. We aren't telling friends & family at this point

Welcome Kristin! My SIL has something very similiar with the antibodies. Hers was so severe with the second that they are done (she also has a bledding disorder)

I hope you have a healthy and happy, long pregnancy.

Kat.

Congratulations, welcome, and lots of prayers for the little bean. I know how hard losses are, and early labor. Maybe this surprise baby was just meant to be. And hopefully you get a change of pace making this pregnancy not so terrible and stressful.

Also, I was 15 when my little sister was born and she is now 12 and we are so close. She has been attached to me since she was 4 months old and I absolutely love her. The age gap is huge but it doesn't matter with us, we are close as could be.

Welcome and congrats. How early were your others? All mine have been early so I'm hoping we both make it full term.
