I was diagnosed with viral meningitis on 17th January of this year. I was in hospital for two days and have not yet returned to work as still suffering from fatigue if I do too much and seem to be prone to colds too, so my immune system is working overtime. I am hoping with as much rest as possible that I will get back to full health.
However, before this happened, my husband and I had been thinking of trying for a second baby this year. At the moment my body feels far too weak to try just yet, but I guess I just want to think there is some hope that I will be well enough to think about trying for baby at some point in the not too distant future. I feel very scared and vulnerable that my body is so weak, I have never had an illness like this before, and have always been so healthy. So it is quite upsetting to think this may stop us growing our family. Has anyone had a positive experience of getting pregnant after viral meningitis and how did their body cope with it?
