Pregnant and Hiv Positive =(

Ok, so I am 7 months pregnant.  And I just had my month Dr's appointment checkup yesterday. And everything went fine.  And the Dr realized that she never givven me a HIV testing.  And so, after I went to see her.  I went right away to the lab to get my HIV test done.  And so later on that afternooon I got a call from the clinic.  Asking if I can come in tomarrow (which is today).  I said SURE!  Wasn't expecting any bad news.

So, then, I go to the clinic and there it is.  The BIG SHOCKER!  That's when I gotten the bad news.  I don't understand it...  I really don't!  I don't use drugs with needles.   My last HIV testing was in January and it came out negative.  And I"m also not sleeping around  either!!!   So, I don't know how I am to be positive?  Is there any other way??????????  I mean, I talked to the father of my baby.  And he said he hasn't done ANYTHING!  He's going in to get tested tomarrow.  But, lets just say he really didn't do anything.  Is there any possible way that I could've gotten it?

Like I said, I don't mess with needles unless its at the doctors.  And I haven't had any partners since I been with my bf.  And plus, I just got hiv tested in january =negative.  I"m confused and depressed now.  I don't know what to do.  But, I guess if I am.  That really sucks.  My life just keeps getting better and better.

Becareful out there everyone.  I guess you don't realize how precious life is and how short it is until you get hit with some bad news.

Hi my dear,<br />
I don't know what you believe in but I believe in God.<br />
Sickness and disease is a result of sin in the world. Jesus came to deliver us from sin therefore sickness too. I have been healed from HIV by the power of God. What you believe is what you shall have. Get a bible and search for every healing sc<x>ripture or check it online if you want. sit in a quiet place in your bedroom and tell God what your want and believe it and he will heal you and your baby. I know you don't know me but trust me on this one. Remember to forgive every one first and forgive yourself too. Then pray, if you do not have the faith go to a chuch of God and let the pastor deliver you.

Hi sir.. I am so interested to know more about your story..... Thank you and God bless you..

I'd like to clear up 2 misconceptions:<br />
<br />
1. a fetus' hiv status is not at all dependent on the father's hiv status. The only way an unborn baby gets infected is via childbirth and/or breastfeeding. These days, mother to child transmission is very rare, as long as the mother knows her status. She takes HAART and then gives birth via c-section. <br />
<br />
2. xxomorgan --- are you pulling this info out of the air?!?!!? HIV cannot lie dormant for years...hardly! Almost all cases show up within 3 mons and all within 6 mons. Quit spreading awful misinformation!!!

u really have to check this thread:<br />
(http://www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/SafeSex/Q203328.html?ic=2003) <br />
on www.thebody.com because your case like this is not the first. there seems to be a relatively high false positive rate on hiv elisa testing with women entering mid-late stage pregnancy due to cross reacting non-specific antibodies produced as a result of their pregnancy. A confirmation test known as wb(western blot) is used to rule out infection. A proviral dna test can be taken too.

it is amazing to know that you are tested negative...as i have read in your post i can feel your worries...i would feel the same if i was in your shoes....but all is well and i have learned something a very valuable lesson in your post....to value what we have today and be stay faithful...

Just another update. It's been two years since I've last wrote this. And just got tested this year a few months back. And I am still Negative! Thank you! And my son is 2 years old in July. He is very healthy! I am blessed. Thanks.

That neg result must feel like a huge weight off you back. But I wonder how they got the pos result wrong

iam praying for you and your family just remember god love you and he is with you all the time i will be your friend all way thank you evangelist pastor susie houston

HIV is so frightening due to it's ability to lie dormant from anywhere between 10 to 15 years. AIDS usually pursues two to four years afterwords. HIV can infect someone and not show up a sign or indication, even in testing, for 10 to 15 years. This is partly why the disease is so successful in being incurable.<br />
<br />
Another reason is that the straining of AIDS (not HIV) changes constantly within a bodily system. Once they have found a cure to one strain of AIDS, the disease in the person has already changed course and mutated again. Physical contact is not a way of getting HIV and AIDS, physical contact with their bodily fluids is. May it be blood, sexual fluids or as suspected, saliva and sweat, but those are not yet proven. <br />
<br />
And of course if none of those fit the bill-- most certainly get retested and try again. Having a baby and a family in the future, however, shouldn't be too effected by your disease. It can be managed for quite a long time, and people do adapt quite well when honest and open about needing each other, from what I understand.<br />
Humans have a very sleek way of being able to round about in whatever situation because they have to most times, and not because they want to. This may be a good thing to remember when you are down-- that it is never too late as long as you are here. This experience will make you incredibly strong, and will give you ultimate perseverance.

I definitely think you should get retested, especially if your boyfriend's test comes back negative. I know some people will get mad at me for saying this, but the tests are not 100%. There are other factors that can make the test come back positive and pregnancy is one of them. There is another factor that can be involved also ....it's called CEBV (Chronic Epstein Barr Virus) and it can also cause that test to light up like a Christmas tree because Epstein Barr has been shown to cause false positives on that test. It is also highly contagious and mimics the seroconversion sickness that is spoken of. That being said, I wanted to ask everyone on here that has tested positive this question........Besides having CD4 counts and viral load testing, has any of you ever gone back and retested during all this time? Have any of you ever been tested for Epstein Barr? I am curious.

well i got back from my docs visit going over the lab work . said i was hiv possitive.. i just wanted to die! he did say it could be a false possitve i pray to god it is im 2 and a half months pregnant and i dont want my child to get the hiv. its really hard the father of my child is just the guy i hook up with . i should have been so stupid . im really hoping its a negative i have a 4year old and this would be too much for me . if i didnt have a kid and one on the way i wouldnt wanna live this way. plz say a prayer for me ! take care

oh, i am sooooo happy for you... what a blessing. take care, dear... =D

Ok, people. I just got back from the doctor's. I guess after your first result. If it came out positive. They send the second result to another labratory. Anyway, turns out I am NOT HIV POSITIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <br />
OMGGGGGGGg I am soooooooo relieved!!!! It was a false positive!!!! Thank god!!!! Now, I can go on with my life and be healthy with my baby!!!<br />
I got hit hard with reality. I'm going to take care of myself and watch out. I know I found the love of my life and know that I won't be sleeping with anyone other than him. <br />
So, relieved and stress free now. There is hope and second chances out there for some people!!!!!!<br />
Good luck to everyone out theree!!!!

Is it possible for them to find out the results the very same day?????? Because when I went to go the labs done. 5-6 hours later I recieved a call to go in the next day. And then, of course I was told.<br />
I still keep tellin myself it's unbelievable!? I have another appointment next friday. I have to go see a specialist or something. I wasn't givin any medication prescriptions or anything.<br />
I'm just so confused to what's going on. Because, as soon as he told me my mind went blank...<br />
So, I'm not tooo sure as to what's going to happen on my appt next friday.<br />
Gosh, I just don't want to believe it. It's bad for the baby but I have been really depressed. I'm tryin to be stong though.<br />
I pray life will get better! hopefullie....... :(

I really hope that you are getting retested.

Now that you know focus on the positive. Apply for Social Security Disability or it's equivalent if you're not in the US. If you're positive and your baby's father is negative then your baby could be negative. As I understand it one parent having HIV doesn't mean the child will have it. It's takes time for a positive HIV test to come in sometimes. I know because my ex-husband tested positive a few months after he'd tested negative. I'm HIV free and his daughter from me and his then girlfriend are also. Try and concentrate on your new baby and taking every step to make sure he/she is okay. You'll be fine if you don't let the diagnosis take control over your life.

Wow. What a story. Get retested. On rare occasions, a false positive may occur. Years ago, you needed two positives to confirm the diagnosis, not one. Follow the medication regimine too. It is managable now, not like it wasn't years ago.

Aids and HIV, it may be found, are contagious but can only be transferred through bodily contact. It is understood that it could be transferred through kissing but I stand to be corrected on this point. You might try taking these two simple but beneficial products; coconut (in any of its forms but preferably its oil) and olive leaf extract. There are other natural substances that are helpful but those two are good (this does not come with any guarantee). I wish you and your baby well, meantime, you have my commiserations.

I think you need to get retested.
