Tested positive for HIV and pregnancy last week
« on: October 15, 2006, 10:35:10 AM »
Talk about amazingly good and bad news. I am a SAHM of a two year old and I have been seperated from my ex for over a year. Last July I met an amazing man and we have been together ever since. Now I find all this out and it is scary and overwhelming. I am worried that I may have infected him. Before we met I had a test and it was negative but that was only after about a week from a sexual contact. I never followed up with the test because I was not informed that this may not be conclusive.
I was not supposed to conceive because of infertility so it is amazing that I have this one on the way. Still I am having a hard time sleeping and I am worried about my appt on the 25th to find out what my labs are and what meds I will need to start. Plus I am sitting here waiting to hear whether either my ex or my fiance is infected. I know it is not supposed to be a death sentence but to me it seems like one. My family for the most part has been pretty supportive but I am five hours away from them in a new city with a zero support network.

So you are saying that you didn't have a conclusive test?

Thanks dingowarrior. I have already seen a infectious specialist and I have another appt with him on the 25th. I also am seeing an OB specialist tomorrow so hopefully all my bases are covered.
