Hi Makayla and welcome to HW, CF room.

I could not answer your question but I know who can....your CF doc can set your mind at ease. Since everyone's situation is different, your concerns, questions, etc....should be directed to your CF center.

this situation sounds oh so familiar. i had to get an abortion about a month ago. all the doctors sort of made me ya no. i do have a beautiful 2 yr old however i was healthy when i had him now well lets say im not as lucky. i am too sick anymore. when i was preg this last time, my blood pressure was really really really low and since i have a pancreatic insuffiency i cant keep food. well if i went thru with my pregnancy i had a high chance of killing me,the baby or both. im not telling u what to do..the only person/people who is going to know whats best for u in your situation is YOU and your doctors. i am still sad everyday after the abortion wondering if i woulda been ok however i have a 2 yr old to think about..i think he rather have me around as long as possible without me risking of killing myself sooner if that makes ne sense.

i wish ya the best..i hope i was some kind of help
