BIG NEWS...

As many of you know, my family has recently moved. We are in a new town and that means new docs. I have scheduled appointments with a family doc, but also with an OB/GYN and a Neurologist. Both of these doctors are important and will need to work together as my husband and I have made a really big decision... we have decided to try to have a baby again! For those of you who do not know my story, I had a tubal reversal back in 2006. The following year and a half contained two miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy. We gave up trying due to the emotional toll it took on our family. A month ago, we had a long talk. I love my husband so much. He has no biological children. He longs for a little one to call him "Dad". I am terrified, though. That is why I am seeing the specialists.

I would greatly appreciate any helpful information from those of you who have had pregnancy after diagnosis. I have read that vaginal birth and Epidurals are bad for Chiarians. I have also read they are safe. I am so confused. It appears that the safest form of delivery is general anesthesia and a C Section :(. This is all in the miraculous event of a successful pregnancy...

Please help!

Good Luck! I wish you the nest. I was diagnosed with Chiari Type 1 in January Right now, surgery is not necessary, but that of course can change. I enjoy reading your journey, it has been very helpful. I have blogged a bit about it too. http://crazykiddies.blogspot.com/2011_01_01_archive.html
