Lyme Disease during pregnancy
I just found out I have Lyme's Disease. I am receiving treatment. 3 Whole months on antibiotics.

My question is does anyone know what the implications of Lyme's Disease would be during pregnancy? I am not sure how long I have had it or if I had it while carrying Meggy. I have probably had it for many years considering the length of time the pain has been present in my bones.

This is a good discovery for me as I have been in pain many years without an answer. I guess if I can remember everything and keep my thoughts straight this is yet another question for John Hopkins. I guess we will be keeping them busy. I hope they have enough time to go over everything with us and figure this out.

I am really wanting some help and soon.

I have no personal knowledge :) (of much of anything, lol) but I found this:

The possible association between Lyme disease during pregnancy and adverse outcome has recently received attention. Transplacental transmission of B. burgdorferi has been documented in a pregnant woman with Lyme disease who did not receive antimicrobial therapy. She delivered an infant with a congenital heart defect (1). The relationship between the intrauterine infection and congenital heart defect has not been established. In an effort to assess the risk of Lyme disease during pregnancy, the state and territorial epidemiologists and CDC have established a registry to enroll cases of Lyme disease in pregnant women before the outcome of pregnancy is known. Of the 19 pregnancies evaluated to date, none resulted in a child with a congenital heart defect. However, other adverse outcomes were found, including intrauterine fetal demise in the second trimester, prematurity, and developmental delay with cortical blindness. None of the adverse outcomes have been documented to be caused by Lyme disease. Outcomes of 14 of the pregnancies were completely normal. The risk of adverse outcome for pregnancies complicated by Lyme disease is not currently known. Reported by State and Territorial Epidemiologists; Respiratory and Special Pathogens Epidemiology Br, Div of Bacterial Diseases, Center for Infectious Diseases, CDC.

If you are worried about forgetting to ask the doc at John's hopkins about things write it all down. I have found that to be so helpful. And I wouldn't leave until they have answered or tried to answer everything weather they have time for it or not:)

Wow! First of all, I'm glad that you were able to get a diagnosis and possibly permanent relief. I'm very curious to hear what the doctor says about any transmission during pregnancy. Could they test her as well?

The test is a simple draw of blood and an order of about 10 different labs. So, they could test her, but her current team of docs here said no. They said just because u have doesn't mean she does. I said how about we just make sure considering. I was told again u r just a mom. We are the docs. Let us do our job and u be a mom.
I don't buy it. I will ask at John Hopkins.

I would want to have her tested too. Just to be on the safe side. I think the odds are in your favor that you did not pass it to her but if insurance covers the blood work why not rule it out? Just my OPINION. ;)
Check with your
doctor first!
