Yep we have only been living here a year, but time for an expansion … “by 2 feet” :) Yep that’s right, come January 2014 my husband and I will be expecting our 1st little baby to arrive!
If you think people have opinions about MS or ANY other illness/treatment you use, wait until you are planning on having a baby or are pregnant, then the questions REALLY come.
a) Are you sure you can get pregnant?
b) Are you sure you’re going to be able to look after a baby?
c) What if you’re tired all the time?
d) What if your MS flares up and you end up in a wheelchair with a baby?
e) What if both you and baby get sick and your husband is left to take care of you?
f) What if your MS doesn’t go into remission when you’re pregnant and you have a flare up?
g) Will you go off drugs before you get pregnant?
h) What if you get sick off your medication?
i) How will you live with yourself if you don’t get back to “normal” post baby?
You can see the pattern it goes in, all valid questions, but good thing there aren’t 50 letters in the alphabet or I was in for A LOT of questions!
I will summarize all these questions with ONE answer … “I don’t know, now be happy for me”.
