For a moment, I thought I might be pregnant. It turned out that I wasn't. My husband and I aren't trying to have a child, but we're not trying to not have one either.
So I was wondering if fibro causes problems with conception, and what effects it has on a pregnancy. Can it also harm the baby?
Has anyone had problems with their fibro and pregnancy?

although i wasn't officially diagnosed yet when i had my last two sons, i had been having symptoms for awhile. i have to say i actually felt better during my pregnancies. i don't know if it's because i ate better, got more rest, drank more water, and didn't smoke or if there is some sort of pain relieving effects to pregnancy hormones or what. i do have to say that i felt significantly worse after i had my sons, but that could be because i had c-sections.

i wouldn't think that there is anything significantly harmful about fibro to a baby (both of my boys were big and healthy), but i would imagine that during pregnancy you'd have to stop taking your meds.

this being human is a guest house.
every morning a new arrival-a joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awarenewss comes as an unexpected visitor.
welcome and entertain them all!
even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably
he may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
