Hi, I have had 2 babies - for the first 12 weeks just paracetamol (was hard but worth it) then I introduced codine, diazepam, tramadol - ALL of which the doctors advice was if benefits outweigh the risks then take. HOWEVER when both of mine were born (emergency section 1st then 2nd elective c-section - best option for pain) they had to stay in hospital for 10 days as they needed to be monitored incase they suffered any withdraw symptoms. Get your GP to immediately refer you to the hospital (pref a obs dr with fibro experience) and be hospital led and not midwife led.

I also had accupunture, hydrotherapy & reflexology (all after week 12) and benefitted but they were really expensive.

Good luck - I admire you very much, I wish I could cope with having more children!!

:hugs:

Hey

welcome to the forum.

I had a baby 2 years ago (just) and I actually found my symptoms got better when I was pregnant. I too came off my meds but had them nearby just incase I needed a little something.

I was still taking small amounts of Morphine as and when needed and all was OK with baby.
My care was mainly midwife care but I was under the consultants as I had to have a section due to other health conditions.

I did however get sterilised when I had her as I didn't want to run the risk again.

Elsbeth - what date 2 yrs ago? I had my 2nd on 8th July 06 so she is just two too!!

I have just heard from my cousin (who also has fibro) she is expecting her 3rd child (only 8 weeks gone) but she says in the last week her fibro symptoms have almost disappeared! When I googled I found lots of sites saying that pregnancy helped their symptoms! Fifelass Maybe you'll be one of those people?? How were you throughout your other 6 pregnancies?
