My husband and I are currently childless and have been hesitant to try getting pregnant for a year now as I've had to be on prednisone so often. However, I seem (hopefully!) to be stabilizing lately and if I am lucky enough to get pregnant, we are committed to keeping me in a bubble for nine months.
Even if I have a healthy pregnancy however, I'm anxious about parenting with severe asthma. When I have bad attacks I feel completely debilitated and can barely function. I also worry about limiting my child's life as I will never be able to go to any of their friends' houses who have pets and so forth. (Hopefully, the imaginary child will inherit my husband's immune system of steel and not mine!!)
I know this is a delicate subject but my friends with kids just don't understand as they are all in remarkably good health and can't grasp what it's like to have a scary chronic condition like ours.
So I thought I'd ask for insight here from people who have been through it. Any thoughts advice comments etc. are most welcome.
Thanks so much in advance!
