It’s my first ever post on here, and believe it or not my first ever post in a forum seeking advice.
I have had Hypermobility Syndrome my entire life. But was diagnosed only a few years ago. As I’m sure you’ve all experienced, I was mis-diagnosed repeatedly. You name it it had it! It was only after 2 years of consistent complaining that I finally got somewhere. Within minutes of seeing a specialist she knew exactly what was wrong. It’s a strange feeling. A mixture of emotions which range from relief that you have answers and disappointed because it’s something you can fix. I’m very fortunate that I have such a loving and supportive husband, amazing friends and a very considerate work team. But it’s so hard to explain what you’re going through. But that’s not what I’m here for. I don’t need to explain what the pain is like, or the emotional struggle, because we all experience it.
My husband and I want to start trying for a family. But I worry that the pregnancy may be a struggle (more than usual!) and that I may not even be able to look after our little baby post birth.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? Do you have any advice? Any tips? Or am I over-thinking?
Appreciation and thanks in advance
