My name is Rachel, I am 42 and found out a week ago that I am pregnant. Saw my OB 2 days ago and he said I am 6 weeks along. I am both scared and excited. I have 3 boys - 13, 12 & 8 and this is my 5th pregnancy. I had a miscarriage 2 years ago and I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) on Feb. 9, 2010. So far, I am doing well with my MS since there are no major flare ups except for some numbness and tingly sensations on my right thumb, pointer and index fingers. I stopped my medication, with my neurologist's approval the day I found out I was pregnant. I hope this pregnancy will go well. My husband and I haven't announced it yet. We wanted to make sure that the baby's fine before we tell the kids because they were really saddened with my last pregnancy. There was no heartbeat at 10 weeks.
Is there any member out here that is or was in the same situation as I am today? I mean, pregnant at 42 with MS?
