was diagnosed with FM a few mnths ago and have also been trying to get pregnant for the past year. with this diagnosis, i am wondering if having a baby is even in my future. i have an 18 yr old son and was married last may but we have been together for 10 yrs and my husband has no children of his own. we both want a baby but am wondering if i would be able to have a child going thru the daily pain that i go thru. i would really like to hear from someone who has given birth and who has gone thru the experience of pregnancy knowing they have FM and how it has affected them physically and mentally. any advice would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
I know exactly what ur saying. i have an 18 yr old son who is getting ready to go prom in a month and who is graduating in 2 months and he just doesnt understand the daily pain i live with. him being my only child, we were always doing everything together and now i cant get motivated to do ANYTHING and he gets so upset with me, i feel horrible. i have had coversations with him about what fibromyalgia is and how it affects you phyically, mentally and emotionally and he understands a little better. i had my husband read about fibromyalgia and now he completely understands and no longer thinks its all in my head, maybe u may want to try that with ur husband. i really hope things get better for u bcuz believe me, i know exactly what u r going thruView Thread
