Currently, I am 22 weeks pregnant and we are having another girl. My due date is October 10th but we are planning on delivering at about 36 weeks in light of what has happened in the past although early delivery is no guarantee that something may not happen again. As of right now, everything is fine with my pregnancy but it always has been at this point. I'm working with three doctors - a local OB & MFM (maternal fetal medicine specialist) and an MFM in St. Louis associated with Washington University in St. Louis - and we plan to deliver in St. Louis. With this pregnancy, Mr. Rochester and I are just trying to be prepared for anything because we have no idea what might happen. Everything could go fine and we might have a healthy baby girl, we could have a baby with severe disabilities, or we could end up with the same outcome as our last two baby girls. Although we continue to realistically examine our situation, we are still trying to remain cautiously optimistic about the future with the hopes that this pregnancy will end with a different outcome than with our last two girls.
