Hi Ena! I'm not quite sure what you are trying to say...I think you are asking if you can have a baby while dealing with Fibromyalgia?

You should look through some of the posts and read the ones about being pregnant with FMS. Those posts might help you understand a little better. I think the most important thing for you to talk to your doctor about is what kind of medications you can take while pregnant and breast feeding, if you plan to do that as well. When you are pregnant, your first priority is the baby.

I got pretty lucky, I didn't have any major FMS problems while I was pregnant. But I have to admit, after having my 3rd and last child, my symptoms got a lot worse. There were days when it took everything I had just to get up and take care of my baby and my other 2 kids.

But I want you to know that having kids was the very best thing I ever did in my life. No matter how hard it was in the past, or how hard it will be in the future...I wouldn't change a minute of it! I've been blessed to be able to stay home with them for the last 12 years and being a Mom really is the most important job you will ever have.

I wish you the best and please don't be afraid to get married and have kids. Just enjoy all the positive things in your life.

Take Care of yourself, Stacey :o)

I will soon give birth to my 4th child, this is my second pregnancy since my diagnosis.
It is possible to have a baby and be a mom and have fibro. My kids are 11, 3, 10mths and baby #4 coming plus I work full time and still going to college.
It's not always easy, and some days are worse then others, but you rest when you can and do what you can on your good days, and hopefully have a good support system for your very bad days.
For me, on my bad days I find quiet activities to do with the kids, like lay in the floor and color,read books or play with blocks or cars, so I'm still resting but spending time with the kids.

For me, my fibro symptoms have been decreased during pregnancy with no flares until 3rd trimester, then it starts coming back full force, but I have to say, pregnancy has been a nice vacation from the flares.

Good luck
