I meant to keep this updated, just in case some other person in my shoes happened upon the post...sorry! So far so good! Only had minor Copaxone drama which I'll get to.
Baby is doing well, HR always good, very active on the last US and everything appeared normal. We have the fetal abnormality screen and a genetic consult (I don't know what they will say about MS prevention that Dr J has not already!) in a few weeks. The AFP screen was negative, and the DNA 21 Plus labs were also normal. Saw my neuro a few weeks ago and got upgraded to every 5 month visits since I am doing so well!
On to the fire juice. It took me a few shots to figure out there was a pattern to the chest pressure and shortness of breath I was feeling all day, and apparently the increase in blood flow to the legs is causing rapid absorption the injection. I've just moved off to other areas and no problems now.
I have volunteered to be part of a study, called Mother to Baby. They have different studies enrolling moms with MS, some looking for certain exposures to medications. I thought I would be in a Copaxone study, but I will be a control for others. I'm happy to give back either way!
A few random pregger things:
Where's the heat? I'm getting colder as time goes on, do I blame MS
I have found Flax4Life muffins, they have about 5g omega 3 per muffin. Good Karma vanilla flax milk is awesome, and has 1200mg omega 3 per glass. Bragg's nutritional yeast is the only one I can find that has published testing for lead, and it's tasty. SafeCatch Elite tests every tuna fish for mercury, is suppose to be the lowest contaminants on the market, and tastes great. Rolling your foot on a golf ball works so well for aching feet. I like Headspace, the meditation app, and it had a free 2 week trial. Prenatal massage...you need one!
