  1. Hello. So sorry I never replied. I don't get on the boards very often. I have a son, and I am pregnant now with a girl.

    Pregnancy really didn't restrict my life at all the 1st time around. I was never on bedrest, until my water broke early due to my small t-shaped uterus...not SCI related. I only gained about 15 pounds, so my people were still able to transfer me. This time has been a bit different. I started having contractions at 29 weeks and I have been taking it easy ever since. I am trying to get to 36 weeks, where we will induce labor.

    As far as my bladder, I do take Ditropan XL 10mg, 3x daily, and I have with both pregnancies. I actually take it along with 5/325 percocet because it helps my leg spasms. My doctor says that the benefits outweigh the risks, considering anything that causes Autonomic Dysreflexia can cause labor.

    If you want to talk and I dont reply, PLEASE PLEASE email me. I am totally open to talking about this stuff

    hey there!my names is Amanda(obviously)! I think we're about the same level of injury and you've had two babies post injury, right? I'm trying to pre-plan a safe pregnancy. and am looking for somebody who's been there! I mainly want to know how the pregnancy restricted your everyday life(were you ever put on bed rest? transfers impossible in third trimester?) and what you did for bladder maintenance?...I'm currently taking 15 mg of ditropan twice a day and that's a big no no for preggos. I got botox injections a few weeks ago...but am not getting the result I was hoping.....
