i started having fibro symptoms between the birth of my 2nd child and when i got pregnant with my 3rd. i actually felt a lot better while pregnant. i had more energy, ached less, and slept waaaay better! (pretty sad when a giant preggo can feel better than a standard fibro-mite) unfortunately, though, i felt worse after i gave birth. i did have a pretty stressful c-section delivery, though, so that might have had something to do with it.
i am not sure if there is something about
pregnancy-hormones, maybe?-that makes fibro better, or if its just because we tend to take better care of ourselves when we are pregnant. i know i ate better and drank more water and didnt smoke and got a lot more rest when i was pregnant.
also, even though i felt physically worse after giving birth, i had this beautiful new baby to love and so i didnt pay as much attention to the pain.
i hope this helps a little. best of luck to you whatever you decide! if you do decide to have a baby, remember that you can do it! and also that we will be right here cheering you on and supporting you all the way
love and hugs
