WELCOME BACK!!!!! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif
I am so glad to see that you have returned! I have been thinking of you and a bit worried that you were gone for so long. I hope you were able to get at least alittle rest over the summer.
Beth sure is lucky to have the family support that she has and what would she ever do without her Mom? I hope you guys are able to get things under control for her as soon as possible! (if there is such a thing)
& PURPLE! What great taste she has! I would give ANYTHING to have my nails done on a mionthly basis let alone a NIGHTLY one!
& YEP! It's a girl! Her name is Riley Nicole and she is due to greet us on the 27th of December. She was quite the surprise for us, but we have never been more happy. I was very concerned in the begining with the seisures & all but I have not had any since about my 3rd week in pregnancy. Well.....I think that is about har fare along I was when I last had a seizure anyway. I was almost 10 weeks pregnant before we knew it. I had all the signs but I kept chalking everything up to the side effects from all the meds they had me on. DUH!!!! I really felt sorta silly to not have known, but this is my first baby so I also use that as an exuse!
I do plan on breast feeding her and after talking to my Neurologist I still have not decided if I am going to go back on any meds after she is born. I am going to continue to stay at home with her & I do not feel I can be on the meds & safetly take care of my baby. I have been on every drug possible I think & they all made me feel terribly drunk & very clumsy & all I did was sleep. I just do not think I can function when I am on them. My husband & I decided that we would almost rather deal with the seizure activity rather than all the side effects. Pr
-pregnancy I would have anywhere from 2-4 Gran-mals a month. If that pattern returns after I deliver then I think we would be more prepared to deal with a few days a month of being out of commision versus everyday of being out of commision with the meds. My Neuorologist is leaving it in our hands & we have put it in God's hands. Please put us in your prayers about this tough choice we are about to be faced with!
So glad to see that you are back & I want details of your vacation!!!!!!
Big hugs to you & Beth! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif
