It’s been awhile but I am back!
Hello to all of you! I know that it has been a long time since I have posted anything, but please note that I always keep you all in my thoughts each and every day. It’s been a priveledge to be able to read all of your posts with exciting information regarding pregnancies. When I had first posted this original message I was hoping that one day I would be blessed with another child.
In July, despite the severity of my case, I was fortunate enough to discontinue my Lyrica. Oh, don’t get me wrong I still do have residuals, but they did not worsen after I discontinued the med–a blessing. That in turn opened the door for us to try and conceive. Wouldn’t you know, we were blessed again and are expecting in early May. Currently in week 10. Some of my residuals have worsened. The numbness and tingling in my feet has progressed to the point of being aggravating but not intolerable..YET. Fatigued a little more too. Other than that…Oh…I did have on going nausea prior to being PG…they are contributing that to post PGS as well…as it appears many of us have. Now being PG, the nausea has been extremely worse…and it’s present 24/7. I am just praying I get relief after the 1st trimester.
We are really excited and feel so blessed to have been given a chance to be parents again after a year and a half of hell. I am on eggshells though…although PG has not been shown to retrigger GBS, it is always in the back of my mind…and that is frightening to me. However, I just continue to latch to my faith and pray that what will be will be and I am once again given the strength to overcome what lies ahead.
Again, please keep posting…I so enjoy all of your posts…and if you’d like I will share what my post PGB PG encounters. Thank you all for being a great support system, you can’t imagine how important that has been to me.
