I know it's taken me long enough to get this up.

Today I am 26 weeks and 4 days.
We are very happy about the new family member on the way.

We have 4 other children. 2 girls and 2 boys and this one is supposed to be another boy.

I have had 4 cesareans, but I am attempting a VBAC this time.

I am very worried about my weight gain. I always gain a ton and this time has been no exception. I don't understand it.

Anyhow, now I am in the middle of the Due Date List and nearing the 3rd trimester. Yay!

I have been lurking the forum watching everyone wait for their bumps and thought it's time for a proper Thread for what's going on with us.

Another diary to read yay.

What age are your other kids. I've got 3 other kids 2 girls, 12 and 10 and a boy of 8, think we'll both have our hands full after this LO comes along.

You can deal with the weight after the birth hun, don't worry about it just now, although I can sympathise as I'm a bit worried about putting on too much. Thankfully its under control just now and I've only put on just under a stone and I'm half way there.

I have two boys aged 8 and 5, and I have two girls aged 6 and 3.

Yeah I have decided not to stress about the weight and just try to manage from here. Pulled out some prenatal exercise dvd's, so I will start something light.

Yeah chasing 5 kids around will help drop some pounds, lol!

Yes you can have a vbac after 4 cesareans. The key is finding a good support team. I have heard of a woman who had a vbac after 7. It's totally possible.
