  • Finally, I will be a Mom!!!

    I just found out that I am pregnant !!! As of today, my husband doesn't know yet. I am trying to surprise him on Christmas Eve to break this news. I am so dying to tell him, but it's not time yet. It'll be a great Christmas present for him I am so excited and very anxious at the same time. Well, because of my IC/PFD.... that may cause frequent UTI during the pregnancy. I pray that I have a safe and healthy pregnancy.
    I will be very grateful if you have any tips for me.
    thanks.

          Have a wonderful Christmas, everyone !!!

          Thank you all for warm, wonderful comments !!! Currently, I am not taking any medications besides prenatal vitamins. The reason why is that I had been trying to get pregnant for a while and didn't want to depend on medication so when I go through my pregnancy, I can have more tolerance for my pain. I believe in more natural healing. My husband started suspecting my pregnancy... I am trying not blow my cover until Christmas. just few more days.... I am feeling so tired and so hard to stay awake. Is this part of it????

            Good for you on the meds!! I hope the pregnancy hormones kick in and you have a wonderful, pain free pregnancy!! As for the tireness, oh baby, YES!! When I was pregnant with both my babies I was SO TIRED the first trimester. But after that I really perked up!! Just sleep as often and as much as you can. I loved being pregnant SO MUCH!! I hope you can enjoy it as much as I did!! I loved it, wow, just talking about it brings back such happy memories!! I hope you can save your secret til Christmas Eve!! I'd be about to bust!!! Good luck!!!

My urologist told me to stop taking the elmiron and my OB said it was ok??This is a miracle baby and i dont want to do anything that will harm the baby? Help if you have info or links i can get some good info on. I get so overwhelmed when i go online so much info..

                  Congratulations and Advice

                  Congratulations! I hope your pregnancy is absolutely wonderful and that you hang onto every minute of its joy. I know that your doctors will guide you with your medication questions; I was told by three extremely reputable docs in a teaching hospital not to take Elmiron, and so I didn't take it or anything else during the pregnancy (with the exception of Benadryl in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters). My baby was beautiful and is still thriving -- I was/am a late in life mom and she was a miracle after 3 failed IVF's and 2 miscarriages so I understand your concerns. I hope you will have what so many of us experience -- remission during pregnancy and post-partum, particularly during breastfeeding -- and I wish you all the best.
