Hey sis . . . you've been though so-o-o-o much. First of all, be very focused on whether or not you and your hubby want a baby. I know there is a feeling of pressure from family . . . but this isn't their call . . . so be very selfish about
your decision in this regard.
I know how desperately I wanted children from the time I can remember (3-4 years old???) and I know I would have been crushed if I couldn't have my own . . . so I really do understand the desire for bearing a child. Mine are grown now and I have some friends who have fostered, then adopted, a couple of kids . . . . I actually feel guilty for not having done that myself. What a beautiful family. The beauty was that the kids were temporary placements and only after all was working well, they started the adoption process. So there is even a way to "test the waters". . . . nuff about
The first step I would take is to make an appointment with a high risk OB/GYN and go over all the knitty gritty with a real doctor. Everyone here can tell you their experience . . . but we are all so different and you having had a kidney transplant, gives an added dimension. But there are some members here who can share their experiences. Emma'smom just had a second baby and Redrose is well into her pregnancy. I had my children before I was on any meds.
((((((((Suzanne)))))))))) Hugs and hot tea for you . . . along with a sincere prayer that you and hubby will sort through this and come up with a decision that will be best for you and him.
