In Reply to: Babies and Guld War Syndrome posted by Carolyn on October 25, 2000 at 04:51:50:
: I am very concerned with getting pregnant because my husband has the gulf war syndrome. He was married to another woman when he got back. His wife was pregnant twice with the first being a miscarriage and the second being severly handicapped. Now we are together and have been for a few years and i have a healthy child from a previous marriage and just experienced my first miscarriage with my husband. Now i am concerned that if i am able to carry a child that it will be severly handicapped. Does anyone have a similiar story?
: Feel free to email me.
I am Mark and i have a similar problem, when i got out of the service i was doing ok i had
just gotten divorced.it wasn't till i got remarried that we had two healthy babys two years
apart.when we tried to have our third baby,this is when my wife had the miscarriage.she
was four months pregnant.when the doctor looked at the baby she or he did not have
the bones fully devolped .so far we have not tried again so i don't really know if it was
due to the gwi or it was fate .but what i have read on the internet is that alot of us
guys with gwi do have this problem where the baby was born but had problems
with thier lungs or different things.as for me i am going to try again to have another
baby and if in case she or he does come out not normal well i am going to give she
or he all my love and leave our gov't responcible for not giving us the answers that we
deserve god bless you carolyn
