I am having an emotional time trying to make the decision if I should try to get pregnant when I have this terrible FM. I know I want a child,but I am unsure if I can give a baby/child everything it needs to be happy and healthy. I feel like now without a child it is difficult for me to live a "normal" life. With the lack of energy and pain I feel on a daily basis, is it fair to bring a baby into a family where the mother may not be able to give it the kind of life I really want to give it? Not to mention, I worry about passing this FM onto my baby. I would not wish this on my worst enemy. My husband can not understand why I am so concerned and he believes I will just deal with whatever comes up and do my best. He wants a child so badly. How can I deny him of that. I work full time now, as a Kindergarten teacher, and many days don't have the patience or energy for the kids. When I go home, I barely can move. My husband does many chores for me to help out. I would have to contiune to work full time after my maternity leave, because finacially we would not be able to make it. I can't imagine working full time with children all day, then have to come home to my own child and tend to my house with this FM. In my heart I know that a child would complete my life and probably give me a reason to get up in the morning, but what if I physically can't do it. I watch my friends who have children and they have a hard time keeping up with their kids, and they are healthy! I also worry about the nine months of being pregnant. I would really like to hear from some other moms with FM and how they deal with it and if they think it is morally right to have a baby knowing I have FM? The anxiety just trying to make this decision is causing me total anguish. Thank you for your help.
