I had gbs 1 year to the day after the birth of my 2nd child (at 22) and the doctors strictly forbade me from getting pregnant again. My hubby got snipped 2 yrs later (at 24) and I had a relapse at 25. Well surprise surprise, I got pregnant this year!! (and had a miscarriage at 8 wks) They are not happy about it. I continue to be followed by a neurologist due to some minor nerve damage, and take some meds for tremors. They said that since it IS an autoimmune, that it can reactivate in pregnancy due to the foregin body. Pregnancy comes under that category of vaccinations and flu shots that we need to avoid at all costs. It is a horrible thing for me to have to say, because I KNOW it's true, but I SO desparately want another baby of my own. It classifies us as UNADVISABLE to carry a pregnancy. That dosen't mean you can't get pregnant. But your Immune system is permanently wonky, and it may turn on you or the baby at any point. If you are pregnant, and have had GBS, see a high risk OB/GYN ASAP!!!! IF not, consider adoption, a surrogate, ect. It sucks, but that's life. At least we are alive.
