I'm really surprised to be here, pregnant with #5.<br><br>
I just found out yesterday and I'm kind of freaked out. This was not a planned pregnancy, and while I'm sure I'll get used to it soon and even feel happy, right now I just feel freaked out! Four children is a lot, and I homeschool, and sometimes I do not feel like a very patient effective mom.<br><br>
I am grateful that so far this pregnancy has been easy -- so easy that I didn't even THINK I might be pregnant. It was only complete exhaustion that drove me to my general practitioner to find out if my iron was low.<br><br>
I had weight loss surgery 18 months ago, so I will probably be doing shadow care with an Ob/Gyn. My weight loss surgery is not the standard Roux-N-Y gastric bypass; I had a Biliopancreatic Diversion with a Duodenal Switch. I've lost 130lbs. This will be my first pregnancy at a normal body weight. I'm still planning a homebirth.<br><br>
Here's to a wild ride!

Congrats! Glad you can join us here!<br><br>
Having a big family is so awesome! No mom is perfect, and I know I'm not. The next one will fit right in, like s/he has always been there <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> .
