YES Bob...my first! (Unless you count my daughter's little chihuahua who has been living with me for the past 6 years...I always called him my first grandson!)
She went to her OB/GYN yesterday. When he asked about health issues, she told him about her MS diagnosis. His eyebrows shot straight up--LOL! Asked if she was on any meds, blah, blah. blah. She explained her natural treatment for the past 3 years. He explained the stoppage of MS while pg and the HUGE relapse possibility after birth but feels since she has had not any real issues in 3 years, she will probably be fine. She has contacted Vonner for their additional guidance. And she is TERRIFIED she will lose the baby! Yesterday she told the doctor, "I am scared to death!" and burst into tears!
I told her to ENJOY and trust in God...He will take care of her and her baby. If something happens then it was not meant to be. And her doctor pointed out: Now you know you can get pregnant!
Lots of emotions rolling around..I am just plain giddy! I have 3--count them THREE--children and this is my FIRST!!! We all live in different cities and I am trying to sell my house here so I can take early retirement and move up with my girls.
Hope all of you are doing well...thanks! Chris
She should be fine. I had MS for almost 18 years now and I had 3 babies within 5 years apart. I went off the pill and I was popping babies out like a pez dispenser. I finally got my tubes tied. My youngest is 14 months old. All babies are healthy and I am fine chasing them around all day and I have no help.
Your daughter is new to MS ( IMHO) so it's normal to be scared. I thought I would have a serious attack after each baby and I didn't. Had all babies by c-section which is harder because you have to recover from surgery.
