Well, here I am, 16 weeks preggers. I have had only slight hints of my Lyme disease during this pregnancy! Well, I should say, other than my nasty insomnia. When I found out I was pregnant, I quit all my meds cold turkey. Wow, I slept 2 hrs, 1.5 and 2.5 on benadryl. I was an anxious, sick, tired mess! I called my psyc and begged for mercy. He gave me doxepin, 100mg. OB said it was safe. I hope so. I have to take it or the consequences are worse than taking a med. It does give me restless leg, but I feel fairly ok.
This has caused me to somewhat ignore my Lyme, b/c everything can be blamed on pregnancy and my neuropathy is slight to non-existent. I have mild to moderate anxiety and insomnia, but that can be blamed partly on pregnancy too. More later:)
