I couldn't agree more, particularly with your comments about how there's nothing new and different to explore with yet another Sami pregnancy. Like you say, there's already a DiMera-Brady child, unless there's more paternity retconning coming up. Although I would love for there never to have an EJami baby, I'm not in favor of retconning either.

They played out the DiMera/Brady dynamic with a baby last year ad nauseam, my goodness, they even centered the whole history of the DiMeras and the Bradys around EJ and Sami through the form of Santeen. Everything last year was DiMera/Brady this, DiMera/Brady that. Everything connected right back to Sami and EJ. I'm frankly pretty exhausted by anything relating to the rivalry between those two families. EJ and Sami have one kid which can be used as a plot device to create drama between Stefano and Roman or whomever down the line, I'm not up for another round of 2007-early 2008.
Even as an individual character, there's nothing fresh and different about Sami having a fourth child. She's already gone through teen pregnancy, she's passed off a child as another man's, she's been through more than one custody battle, she's done WTD, she's had Stefano threaten her safety, hell, she's even produced twins with two different fathers! Her pregnancy adds nothing new the canvas. At least with Nicole, there are many more places to explore since this is her first one. I'd also like to see her alcoholism play into her pregnancy, maybe deal with the issue of fetal alcohol syndrome. This is a completely new dynamic for a character like Nicole whereas it's the same repetitive crap for Sami.
