I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and taking the cocktail. I have had some problems with side effects and I have not gained a pound yet which they contribute to the cocktail. I have a great system in MN of a nurse that visits my house once a month and great id that deals with pregnancy too.

I can just say that in my hospital in the netherlands there have been 6 births by HIV+ moms in 2006 and the cocktail didn't harm any of the babies. I think you are very very brave and I want to follow that route myself. Doctors in Israel are very thorough and strict when it comes to babies & birth (many of the routine checks in Israel are not performed in Europe) and I believe that they would not take chances.

Yes I am.

I am so sorry I can't help with the lipo. I am not going to make any suggestions on this, because I am sure you tried many of them. Just send you strength, and I think it's wonderful you are pregnant.

I will be offline now for 5-6 days. See you next week & all the best.

She is measuring in weight and body size three weeks ahead. Your body will suffer not the babies usually. I finally did gain a pound this appointment today but so far I should have gained at least 15. I have had numerous ultrasounds and she is doing very well with no signs of any problems.
With my last pregnancy I only gained 8 pounds so it may just be the way my body responds. However I have had a decreased appetite on the cocktail along with persistent diahrea.

I was curvy before I got pregnant and I am curvy now so not sure if I have had any lipo problems. However I have only been on the meds since December because even before I got pregnant my viral load was 663 and my cd 4 count was 504.

Bad news. I went to do a routine ultrasound today at week9 and there was no pulse, they checked it 3 times and decided I have to go thru an abortion, they set up a date on 20.05,
I was told in the hospitel I am the 5th woman today with the same story.
U have no idea how I feel , like I want to die , so empty ...
Is there any one of you who went thru the same thing ? Do u think its got anything to do with the hiv or with the cocktail ? I was told in the hospitel its got nothing to do one with the other and this is very common but still , I am having these thoughts what if it does got somthing to do with the hiv, what if it will repeat itself on the second time ?

I am so sorry to hear this.

I know this is common in all women, my friends went through this too and they are not positive. But I read somewhere that it might be even more common in positive women. I guess we will not be sure.

That's why I want to get pregnant asap, but I can't. My BF doesn't want a baby, and my job is not secure.

I wish you a quick recovery, be well and take good care.

5 times ?? god !! but was it 5 time i a row ? Now you are pregnent , is this your first pregnancy in general and is it your first pregnency with the drugs you are taking ,,, the 5 time there were no pulse ... were for the same pregnancy ? Is this mean I should expect to fail some more pregnents ? I can't take it ! What did your dr. say ? Thos they say its got anything to do with the drugs or with the hiv in general? my dr, says its got nothing to do with this ,,, What drugs are you taking currently during pregnancy, do u have any idea if kaletra+videx and viread can cause this abortion? When we furst thinking of getting pregnent i was still with stockrin and been adv its nit safety, i refused to switch it to kaletra cause of the lipo so i was given the viramune - but unfortunately , the viramune caused for Steven Jhonson symptom , and i almost passed away, so i had no other choice but going back to the kaletra with the viread and videx ...

It was five times over four years. At the time I was dealing with an infertility specialist and the meds for infertility were getting me pregnant I just had a problem carrying past 10 weeks.
I have a beautiful two year old son though and I was not HIV pos. for that pregnancy. I did not learn I was HIV pos until this pregnancy. I started taking combivir and viracept around December however throughout my pregancy my viral load was under 5500 and in fact I actually started meds with a viral load of 664 and CD 4 count around 500.
With HIV if you are serious about getting pregant I would advise that you see an infertility specialist to get their take on what you should do. I say this because with your medicine and viral loads you may want to see if there is a better time so that you can wean from meds first and get pregnant quickly through a medical boosted cycle with chlomid etc. Remember that it takes time for your body to heal from a termination and you should wait at least three months with one charted cycle before you think of starting again.
Keep in mind that there may be absolutely nothing wrong with your fertility. There is a pretty high percentage of pregnancies that end in the first 12 weeks. My mom had two miscarriages and five children so that may give you an idea.
As for meds my dr. will only work with the meds that I am on during pregnancy and really does not like to do them until the second trimester. Not really sure that your meds would have caused this.
