A pregnant woman who has fibromyalgia may find that the physical and emotional stress can intensify the symptoms of fibromyalgia, Pregnant women with fibromyalgia may experience significant pain, fatigue, and stress, particularly during the first and last trimesters of pregnancy , This is personal experience .
“Tia Martin said ” My doctor warned me that because I have fibromyalgia all over my body that he wouldn’t suggest I get pregnant, Did anybody else doctor advice them not to get pregnant? Anyway, I told him its to late I’m pregnant.
I asked him why? Doc: Well Miss.Martin, we find people with fibromyalgia like yourself that has it all over….you will have a hard pregnancy, The further you get the harder it will be for you and the baby.
He said you’re in your early stage and if you decide that you didn’t want to keep the baby I would write up something for you, My thinking was how hard can it be compare to what I’m going through at the time, Running back and forward to the doctor at less 2 – 3 x days a week. Boy was he right, I love my son to death, but my pregnancy was the worst. The pain was 10 x worst, It was time I thought I wasn’t going to make it, My asthma was worst. I threw up a lot due to me hurting so bad that it cause me to throw up, I stayed upstairs a lot.
