Mctd And Pregnancy
I'm a 30 year old woman, I have had Fibromyalgia for about 10 years, and almost 3 years ago developed MCTD. I actually find the Fibro pain worse, but only because no meds will affect my pain. I do quite well on the meds for MCTD (but only if I'm on a lot of the stronger ones) My MCTD seems to be most like Lupus and Scarderma.
I know Doctors are really busy, but I wish they could spend more time to explain things more, instead I have to look up stuff on the internet, and scare the pants off myself. (Ignorance really can be bliss, can't it!?)
My husband and I want to start trying for a baby. I'm scared now, I'm seeing my family doctor, rhumy, highrisk obgyn, and a pharmacologist. It's scary thinking I might have to go off some of my pain pills and drugs for MCTD, but also scary for the baby to think I'll have to stay on some of them. I'm also hoping I'll be up to taking care of a family.
I find that I get so tired and want to sleep, but when put in a situation that I HAVE to deal with, often helps. So I'm hoping motherhood would give me a kickstart, can't sit around feeling sorry for yourself when you have a baby to look after right?
I'm still nervous, any other mom's out or hoping to be moms would like to talk?
