... It's some weeks that I am reading you all... and would like to thank you because you give me strenght... we're just at the beginning... and my mood changes so rapidly and continuosly during the day.
... I just hope I could be a mother one day... and that my child could be negative...
And hope to live enough to see my baby become an adult and have babies too...
I know you can understand me.
God bless you all.
Luv,

lyla,

Keep your head up!  I too thought the same things about having a healthy child.  Now I am a mother of a wonderful little boy who is healthy and will be turning 5 in August.  I wasn't expecting to get pregnant but it just happened.  I was so worried about him being positive but I took my meds just like my doctor told me to and he took Retrovir for the first 6 weeks and he tested negative every time.  Good luck to you!!!

Becoming a mother
« Reply #3 on: February 11, 2010, 07:02:31 PM »
Hi Lyla,
I wanted to send you a little note of support and warm wishes.  You can absolutely become a mother and have a health pregnancy and baby if that is something you decide to do.  If you are taking treatment, there is a less than 2% chance of your baby becoming infected during pregnancy and delivery, and there are more and more clinics and doctors that specialize in helping HIV positive women become moms.  Check out http://pwn.bc.ca/hiv-body/pregnancy-and-hiv/ for the most basic information.  Of course there's lots more to read and discuss and learn when you decide you're ready, but hopefully this will help you to feel excited about the possibility.  All the best!

Hi Miriam!
Thanks a lot for your message and for encouraging me!!!
I really appreciate it and will visit and read the link you sent.
Yesterday we have been to the Doctors, and we have met the doctors that will take care of us.
Obviously my first question was: will I be able to have a healthy baby? I said, it's true that the percentage that the baby could be positivi is around 2%?
The doctor said that now percentages are less than 1% and that if you follow all the prescriptions and then when baby is born you take care of him... is less than 1%!
I know that now is not the moment... obviously,but this encourage me and gives me hope and makes me stronger!!!
It's a pleasure to have you close to me... so... keep in touch if you like it too...
How are you anyway?? Everything ok???
A big hug

That was my first fear after diagnosis too - and now I've got a little 10 week old boy (not planned!).  First test was negative, we're just waiting for the others.  Follow all the medical advice and you can absolutely have a healthy baby and live a long life.
