Iih And Pregnant


I was diagnosed with IIH about 6 years ago when I had horrible headaches. I had one lumbar puncture and was on meds and it "cleared up" quickly. I just had another "bout" with it after gaining some weight. I had a lumbar puncture again and was on meds for about 6 months and my optic nerves are normal again. I was supposed to be losing weight to avoid this again... and then I found out I am pregnant. Im really nervous about being pregnant and already at my heaviest weight ever and having IIH. Anyone else that is pregnant or has gone through a pregnancy with this? I'm just wondering what I might be in for..
