    Congratulations on being pregnant. I hope you will ask your doctor questions because he/she is a good resource for answers. There is an AIDS board on here that is very good, and I hope you will trust them to post about this there. I think you might be able to get some support and answers there too. Good luck.

    Hi Lorrine,
    Congrats on being PG. Get a good HIV doc, and yes with the right drugs they can keep your baby from getting HIV. The HIV care is very excellant these days. They now consider it more of a chronic condition that can be controlled. Not only can you have your baby, but you'll be raising him/her. I think you'll be less stressed when you get a good doc.

    My prayer's are with you and the babe. Please don't dispare.
