Change of treatment plans... again!!!!!!

I am pregnant!

(no other way to really word that eh?)

Its a surprise (kinda, we knew we had unprotected sex once but had no idea how short my cycle was this last month!) We have eben in nebraska the last week seeing where my husbands family grew up and we spread our grand parents ashes off the bluff in the city where they met, got married and had a family.... so its kinda weird to deal with death, and then life all in the same time frame...

I just knew I didnt feel right!

I am in shock, scared, freaked out...... I was on all my meds for the last 2 weeks not even thinking this could happen. good news all meds are category B and C so hopefully these last 2 weeks we haven't screwed anything up! I take good care of my self and eat lots of healthy stuff so I am sure we will be fine.

We contacted our 2 llmds and our llnd.... they all agreed 3000mg of amox while I am pregnant will give us a 99% chance of a child with out lyme! You have no idea how happy I am about that!

Of course I can't wait to call all my Drs on monday..... I have been off all meds since thursday..... OMG!!!!

I feel fine so far!

AAAAGHH!! I am SO HAPPY FOR YOU BOTH!! Yay - babies are such a blessing and they have a way of making life look rosy. A baby fotomom - thats so awesome! Congrats!



What a relief to hear 99% chance of lyme free baby.

Try not worry about the meds you were on having any negative effects. I'm sure everything is fine.

How are you feeling? How many weeks are you?

Re: Change of treatment plans... again!!!!!!

My due date is early April, the calculators say either 4/4 or 4/9 but I know when I ovulated.... and I know when we had un-protected sex!

I feel fine! I have been off all my meds for a few days now and everything is normal! (*knock on wood*)

I was reading my journal from when I was prego 5 years ago and at this time I was sick as a dog with morning sickness! So lets hope it stays away!!!!

OMG I still can't get over this!!!!!!!

Fotomom
Get out the camera. Congratulations. I know you must be happy and a little scared too. You are doing all the right things. Try to enjoy the joy and think forward to the little one. Hope morning sickness stays away.

Re: Change of treatment plans... again!!!!!!

Thanks everyone....

today I had an U/S... its considered a VIABLE pregnancy and I am at 5.5 weeks. Its planted high int he uterus and the yolk sac is visable.... we suspect we can see the heart beat at the next u/s on 9/5.... we are so excited.

So far so good on only amox 3000mg.... I had mild bladder flare on saturday night but it sibsided, nothing that was to bad... everything else is way to perfect. No hand pain, I sleep through the night.... I am off all my othe meds but the baby aspirin. CRAZY!!!!!!!!
