MS and pregnancy?

Hi everyone, I haven't been on here for a while but I'm hoping some of you can help me out with some real life info. I am currently 4 months pregnant and saw my MS nurse today who told me that it is likely I will be put under 'dual care' with a consultant neurologist for my pregnancy and birth. She also said this would probably mean I would have to give birth in hospital (rather than a midwife led unit) and would be unable to have a water birth. I'm wondering what people's experiences of being pregnant and giving birth with MS are. Did you find that it affected these types of decisions? How did you feel during birth - nurse said I'm likely to fatigue more quickly which I hadn't even thought of. I was diagnosed just over 2 years ago but have been generally well since then. Any info or advice will be much appreciated, thanks everyone. Anna
