Good evening, lovies.
I have been having the baby blues real bad lately. I have married my best friend, Steve last year after dating for 5 years. Many of you know how great he was to me during and after my lumbar fusion surgery last year. He is wonderful to me all of the time truth be told. We have both been married before, and both have one child from our previous marraiges. My daughter is 9 years old and is with us part time, she is happy and has a great dad that we share time with. His son is 8 years old and has not been living with us even part time for many years due to ongoing custody battles with his estranged wife. We both would love the opportunity to have and hold a child of our own. That being said, I have had many spinal complications over the last 10+ years, and I have also had cervical cancer removed in 2000. I am nervous about what pregnancy would do to my body, and if I would be able to have pain management that would not effect the babe. I know you can't make this decision for me. But, is there anyone out there willing to share thier post op pregnancy story good bad or indifferent?
