About Me: Female, 35, Ketchikan, AK, member since Jul 2009
29 year old female, with dilated cardiomyopathy. Single, no kids. I've been watching kids since I could remember always wanting to do nursery during church, since then I've always been a babysitter and a live in nanny for 3 different families. I've always loved children
[More] and they seem to be attracted to me in the same way. I want to have a baby through a donor. I am waiting for thoughts from my cardiologist whom lives in another City, as where I live in Alaska on a small island there is not one cardiologist I've been on heart meds for 7 years, back then my heart was working at only 10%. Now my heart is practically normal due to medication I'd have to stop my meds while pregnant, I had assumed I could be switched to heart meds that would be safe while pregnant, but was wrong. This is something I have my mind totally set on, and I know there as to be mothers out there that have had healthy babies....that are in my same situation. I just want to hear some stories and experiences and any advice will be gladly accepted. I want a child I was to love it unconditionaly, I want it to want me and need me I want to give it all my love and I feel like I'd be complete as woman, I would be thrilled to have a little baby I can love and teach all sorts of new things to. I beilieve every woman should have the opportunity to have a child. I am willing to take risks, and i know there will be risks, I would be considered extremely high risk. Please any information would help. I was the most excited than I've ever been when I finally made my mind up to go through with this and try and become pregnant, but after an appt with my regular Dr, I was crushed. I held it in, but then just started crying uncontrollably. Thank you for taking time to read about me.
