I have Fibro and I am pregnant

Postby SarahNewbery » Fri Nov 02, 2012 4:51 am

Hi I just would like to hear other peoples opinions and stories please who have got this condition and had a baby. I have two kids but had them before I got Fibro so it's all new to me now. One main thing I would like to know is can I still give birth naturally, I did with my two I had just gas and air but with Fibro if I stub my toe I feel like it has been sawn off so will I be able to cope with labour without a c-section or epidural. Thanks

Congratulations on your Nappy News Sarah :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Pregnancy with FM is something that pops up periodically. A search of the forum might bring up some helpful info for you.

Like all things FM, how it may affect you could be very different to how it might affect someone else :facepalm: :facepalm: One thing that has popped up quite often tho is that pregnancy can make symptoms either go into a remission/dormant like state or be eased right back to much more manageable levels. These can last a few weeks, or even months after giving birth.

As for the type of birth that you could have, you really need to talk to all the people involved in your care. We can't say whether you would be able to have a birth like your previous ones. Things can change rapidly where FM is concerned, and as virtually anything could happen between now and when your bundle of joy arrives, being aware of options, possibilities and potential outcomes would make sense.


If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either

Congratulations :teddy-bear:
When I was pregnant my pain disappeared completely it was wonderful :clap: and it didn't return until I stopped breast feeding, I had all my other symptoms but because I had no pain the other symptoms didn't bother me so much, so fingers crossed :fingerscrossed: you'll be pain free !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry can't advise about birth as I had cesaren
Congrats again.
