I'm nervous...

I have a doctors appointment later today with my kidney doctor and we're going to talk about pregnancy and whether or not I should/will be able to carry to term. **Yikes**

I'm so nervous, didn't think I would be, considering I'm not really looking to have a child, but want to know for future reference...

Good luck htc. I was in the same boat. I ended up being confined to bed for 4-5 months and was glad to do it. My nails finally grew looooooooong because all I did was fluff a VERY soft pillow from time-to-time and all the good vitamins I was taking!!! lol I had a fairly small baby 5 lbs. 3 oz. but he has more than made up for it now at 17!!!!

It's a huge fear of the unknown. Our kidney problems may be different, I don't know. Best of luck to you with this visit.

So the verdict is that pregnancy is definitely an option. My kidneys are good with the meds, if I get preg I'd just really have to watch out.

Now comes the hard part, trying to figure out if I really WANT to have a baby. That's the truly hard part because in 3 years, my step son goes to live with his Mom and DH and I won't be the primary care givers anymore, so I just might want to enjoy that freedom for a while...

...or you may not. Isn't it nice to know that you will be able to make a choice in the future? Good news, htc.

I am too, thanks for the thoughts guys! Now I can call my sister and tell her she won't have to pop out a baby for me. It'll be a good birthday present for her, since today is her birthday!

I'm happy to hear all is well with you. Glad those meds work..Don't worry about if you should or should'nt have a child, that you can decide later..I'm just pleased you have options open to you. Stay well..
