Re: VV and Pregnancy

From: Kris


Hi pam, I just read your posts. It's so encouraging to see soemone who is experiencing some of the same things as me...I feel so alone and don't like to discuss it much with famliy or friends. I was curious how you were doing with your pregnancy~ I hope all is well:) I found your comments so intersting about how the various doctors can't agree on what's your safest option. I am in the process of seeking pre-conceprion counseling and I am having trouble finding someone who understands my condition and who is willing to help me get around certain problems. I was wondering if you have avoided the blood tests and also if you planned on going natural(no IV or epidural) Are there any other drugs they can provide orally? Also do you have to provide a birth plan for all possibilities.

How are you feeling this far along in your pregnancy~What state of mind are you in?

I apologize for all the questions, I am just looking for advice from someone who is going through this who can relate. Good luck to you. Look forward to seeing our follow up post-Kristine
