Iam 34 and would like to have one more child. I guess I am just wondering if it is a good idea, and how many people have had a baby and not passed lyme to them. I would hate to pass this on to a baby.

My daughter is 22 months . Ive had Lyme 9 yrs, from what i suspect. She is healthy and very smart and beautiful. I didnt know I had Lyme until after her birth i developed bad symptoms. We are currently waiting for her Western blot to come back. We will see. but she is very healthy most of the time.

She has had some strange things happen but im on the wall about it.
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards.

Iam glad that she is ok. MY first son is now 10. I have had lyme for about 10 years. He seems to be ok. Some things he has I think could be lyme, but he keeps testing neg. I would just feel awful if i passed it to a new born. is it worth it?

I understand that many LLMD's will treat with Amox. during your pregnacy and while you are breastfeeding.

Our Baby just turned the big ONE, she is so far so Healthy and Cute. I waited to get Pregnant till I was symptom free for about 9 months and stayed on Amoxy the whole time.
 
She tested Negative at Birth and we will always worry but she is so much worth it.
 
I stopped taking antibitics when I was done breastfeeding and it came back again. Be very careful Post Pregnancy.

Really lyme. That is good to hear . Iam glad she is doing well. I am not symptom free at this time, (not sure if I ever will be). Iam on Tetracycline now or was on it. I know that one you can not take.

Do you think it would be a good idea to get on that now instead of Tetra? I know that Tetra has a warning on it for being pregnant, and if you want to become pregnant. I Have been on it for a little over a year.

My Dr told me today it's not a good enough anibiotic to treat Lyme, it's great when your pregnant but if your not you need something stronger. I would kick its butt as hard as you can for a little while before you get Pregnant.
 
I am not sure what your symptoms are but mine were all Nuerological and I really needed IV antibiotics. Everyone is different but for me the IV Rochephin really worked.
 
Do you have a good supportive Lyme Dr?

Mine are mostly nuerological. I dont have the best dr. he does not do the IV stuff. Plus I dont have alot of money so I try to get drugs that are cheaper. I had my self on a time line, did not want to have kids after I turned 36. I guess Lyme has put a wrench in that.
