Trying to Conceive

Number Four

Happy Holidays, lets try for number four!

My husband has long stated that he wants a large family, something that, for a long time, made me cringe and blink at him in wonder. I have a younger brother and he is the middle child of three. Hardly a basis for a large family in my eyes yet, we take a step back and look at his mother's family and now the basis is seen. My mother-in-law is one of eight. Yes, eight!

Baby Itch

Well, for about the last two weeks, Chris and I have been seriously talking about getting pregnant and starting a family. I went off my pills on Monday, December 15, 2008. Pregnancy has been the only thing on my mind since then. I can't wait for it to happen. I started taking a multivitamin that dad carries in the office and I feel more energized because of it. I hope this the beginning of a wonderful journey. I am so excited to go through it.

Pregnancy On Medication?

Dear Midwife,
I have been with my partner since i was 14, so I know he is the one for me, and we both feel ready to have a baby, we are in a stable place and it is all I have ever wanted.

However; I am on methotrexate, for rheumatoid arthritis, and I take a 5mg dose weekly, which, in January is due to be cut down to 2.5mg. do you think this will be a problem, if I do get pregnant? As I really want a baby now more than ever.

If it is due to be a problem, what will be the risks involved?

Many Thanks,
