have you ever heard this
« on: January 31, 2011, 09:41:37 AM »
When I took my little Gabi to the Dr and we got her first results, the Dr told me that given the first test being negative and my vl when I delivered etc, the baby only needs to be on the azt for 4 weeks as opposed to the 6 weeks.  Has anyone heard of this?  I would love not to have to always wake my sleeping angel to give it to her anymore but I do not want to risk her health either.

   Fran,

     If you feel uncomfortable with his advice you can tell him you would feel more assured for the babies well being if it was given for 6 weeks.   I did find this pdf file which seems to show some other dosing recommendations.

Thanks Skeebo.  That is exactly what I was looking for.  I just wanted to see that there was something published to back that up.  I am OK with giving it for only 4 weeks as long as they say it is OK but did not want to go by just one Dr.  I could not find anything like this on it but I also suck at doing research.  :P
So the Dr was right, the baby is a low risk since my numbers were so good for not even just the last month there but for almost 6 months at the end I was undetectable.  Also her first test was negative so that was a plus.  Given all of this I will stop her meds at 4 weeks which the Dr said the 1st of Feb. but she was born the 2nd of January so i will go until Wed and she will be done.  YAY!  Now just to get all of her test results and enjoy my baby without the worry of waking her up and pissing her off.
Thank you again for the link. ;D

   Fran,

    LOL Gia use to get pissy as well when we would wake her up for her dose.  She took it so well though, a real trooper, and I was so proud.  I am glad to hear Gabby is doing good.  Enjoy this part Fran, it will be gone before you know it.  Gia got in a little hot water at daycare on Friday, it seems she is quite the bully.

   Wanna trade?

   Skeebo
