I was dx RRMS in June and my first is due 18th Feb. So I know exactly how you feel.
I was referred to a consultant obstetrician because of my MS diagnosis and I see her every few months just to check up on my pregnancy and MS symptoms. Been having a lot of bladder problems, so I am actually back to see the consultant today to discuss.
The consultant has also recommended a “normal” labour (no c-section) but would like me to have an epi. She said this is so I can sleep through some of the labour!!
Since I was already pregnant when diagnosed, I have not been given any DMDs as yet. But my MS nurse has suggested I start taking Tecfidera a couple of weeks after the baby arrives. That way I can breastfeed for a couple of weeks to give the baby colostrum, and then I can switch to formula so I can start treatment.
I think if I had been adamant I wanted to breastfeed for longer, they would have allowed me. But the risk of relapse after childbirth is quite high (although not certain by any means), so I want to start taking the DMDs fairly quickly.
Anyhoo, if you want to chat or send me a private message - please feel free! We can be bump buddies I can also let you know how I’m getting on after the birth if you would find it helpful.
Wishing you the best of luck with your pregnancy.
