Sort of OT - Wife is pregnant

Postby feesher » Mon Nov 29, 2004 8:29 pm

A little off topic, but I have to type it because there's no one around to yap to.

My wife is RRMS, I would say very slightly worsening RRMS. But in the grand scheme of things, we're good. We have 2 boys. She stopped avonex in the summer for various reasons.

We've been doing a lot of soul searching in front of the antegren approval, and it's heightened since approval.

Now today - BLAM - we find out she's pregnant again. This one was most un-planned. It's been a huge shock.

But we are looking at it as a blessing (since we think she's pleny able physically to be pregnant again). We get to take 9 months to really think about antegren. We get to wait and see how it goes - maybe even wait for the 2 year data if there is any.

Anyway... had to get it off my chest. As far as i've found, pregnancy really is a 9 month remission (though not necessarily guaranteed).

:D Congratulations feesher to you and your wife - hope all goes well.

So first we all hope for a healthy baby but boy or girl? We had two girls not sure I would have known what to do with a boy baby!

That is great news!! I can honestly say my best 9 months with MS were when I was pregnant! I actually forgot I had MS for a while there!

Congratulations again!! :D
