Saying hello

Hi everyone...looks like I will be joining you.
My name is Rachel and I am due around Oct 10th, I believe, and this will be my 5th baby. My other children are 1, 2, 3 and 4 years old. I have been married for five years.
Being pregnant again is QUITE a shock to me and will take time to believe. I am 26 years old and a 2 year breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed at 24 years old and 14 weeks pregnant with our 4th child.
I was scheduled to have my final breast reconstruction surgery March 6th, and once healed from that I was supposed to have a hysterectomy since I am brca1 positive and have a 50% chance at getting ovarian cancer. Needless to say, this pregnancy is going to complicate things Smile I really am shocked to be pregant, cause even though I could not be on birth control cause of the hormones, we were SOOOO careful and used protection constantly! But I know these things happen Smile Its all very overwhelming for me right now but I am in it to win it so it looks like its going to be another looooong summer! Can't wait to get to know you ladies and hh9m to you all!

Congrats on being pg again! Those are some challenging ages close together so you must be a super woman to do all and have health issues!! I am no stranger to chaos myself though with #7 on the way!
