In this moment

Some days I feel at peace, some days I feel the anger, the fear and the sadness when I think about my condition.  But I know that what’s important is to live in the moment. To face reality head on.  My reality is that I have passed the 3 months landmark in my pregnancy.

In this moment I am celebrating. 

In this moment I am faced with medication changes.

In this moment I am worried how my body is going to react to the new medication. 

In this moment I am worried about my health stability.

In this moment I know that truth and acceptance are my only best friends.

In this moment I know God will never leave me.

The medication is what is best for you especially during your pregnancy.
Your body will get used to the medication.

Hi Ladies....and Mano,

How exciting to hear that you are just about over the first trimester!!! Congratulations. I got diagnosed around 16weeks and within 6 weeks of diagnosis I was put on medication. I have tolerated the medicines quite well apart from tiredness which my doctor thinks its more pregnancy related. I am happy to say we are now 35weeks gone and once baby is here I will be coming of the meds! You are going to be fine!! Of course there is the anxiety and worry about how your body will react but there are some really new combo's out there which has a lot of safety data for pregnancy and also well tolerated. Best Wishes!!

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find a friendly health care provider who is knowledgeable about HIV and pregnancy. Some health care providers simply are not aware of the wealth of information about pregnancy planning for their patients living with HIV (HIV+). Perhaps even more challenging, though, are the judgmental attitudes that many health care providers still have.
