Talking Pregnancy & Spinal Stenosis


I am 26 years old. I have had spinal stenosis since birth. My first operation was at 10 years old, my second at 13 and my third at 23. My doctor is currently trying to avoid a forth...My question was; How would a pregnancy affect my spinal stenosis? To be more precis, would I be put on bed-rest for most of the pregnancy? Would I be able to deliver vaginaly? (My sister scared me a bit because, after her first child, she said it would surprise her if, with the intensity of back labor, I could avoid a cesarian section!!)

Thank you
Mélanie Main*****

Sorry, I don't know about preganancy and spinal stenosis. My husband has spinal injuries (two central herniations), he also takes pain meds everyday just to get thru the day, so I can't imagine him giving birth (ha ha, sounds funny, but you know what I mean.) I'm sorry, I'm not trying to scare you or anything, I just know how he is if he doesn't have meds. But his problems may be different than yours. When is your dr's appt? Maybe your spine dr will work with your ob? Congratulations and good luck! Let us know how everything is going!
