Due Jul 12, 2011 (girl)
I am 27 years old and expecting my 2nd child in the coming year. I have to say I was pretty shocked to find out I was pregnant again and still wonder if I am making the right decision in keeping this baby. My baby girl Justice will be turning 2 in January 2011 and I really want to give her all of my attention and worry if all that will change when the new baby is here. With them being 2 and a half years apart, I'm hoping they will grow to be the best of friends and not drive me crazy during the process..LOL
