any expectant new mums out there?

Hello, i am 30 years old and live in Leeds. I have RRMS and am expecting my first baby at the end of May 2013 and am really excited about it but was thinking it might be nice to meet some other mums who also understood the extra pressures that having MS may bring at this time and to be able to share information and experiences and support :O)

Hi Helen

Congratulations! I’m also expecting my first Baby and have RRMS. Mine is due on 16th Feb so not long to go now. I know how you feel, it is exciting. I can’t wait to meet my little one but I’m also a little apprehensive of how I might cope if and when I relapse.

How has your pregnancy been so far?

Hey Helen,

My husband and I haven’t been able to get pregnant. But I guess you can say we’re expecting cause we’re going to start the adoption process this year. Yeah! I’m 28 and have RRMS. I totally understand the pressures cause every time I have a “bad week” I start thinking, “how the heck can I take care of a kid like this?” but I know your maternal instinct kicks in and it’s amazing the things you can accomplish even when having a “bad week.”

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

@helenw8686, you wouldn’t be using an iPad or an Apple Mac, would you? It’s just that I know of another problem which seems to be Apple-based……

I believe the Avatar issue may be down to the size of the image being used. Try and resize the image to 150 x 150 pixels and see if that does it. 😎
