I'm expecting a child and I have sickle cell, what should I expect?

A healthy child. Expect a healthy child! if you have sickle cell anemia then you will pass that trait on to all your children and they will lead normal lives with just sickle cell trait. It is important to know if the father of the child has sickle trait...If so then there is a 50 % chance your children together will have sickle cell anemia. Have you discussed this with your physician? You need to.
