I slipped a disc around 10 months ago and it's hitting my sciatic nerve I was stuck in bed for around 4 months, I was unable to get up everything was impossible at this point. However, I mangaged to get myself up and about and it's starting to get more manageable.
I've had the epidural injection but got no relief from it so I'm now just getting by as I don't want to have the operation.
What is bothering me is that myself and my fiancee are ready to try for a baby but I'm scared that my body won't be able to cope with carrying the baby or the birth. I've spoke to the doctor but she didn't offer me that much advice, basically just saying that pregancy is hard work for your body and it depends if I want to put myself through it.
Has anyone else had a slipped disc and then carried a baby?
How did you cope with birth?
Were you offered any help or support throughout your pregnancy?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
