Hey JackRube (sorry I should remember your name from July thread but I have forgotten!) thanks for the reply, makes me feel a lot better. Like I said, bubs is fine, I've had 4 scans and blood tests and it's all great but it doesn't stop me from worrying sometimes.
Riley'smummy - I know what you mean! I had a panic when I found out I was pregnant too as the neurologist told me we would have to plan meds around me getting pregnant but I didn't realise I was already pregnant at the time we had that convo. The first thing you should do is call your neurologist and tell them you are pregnant. What medication are you on? The good thing is that you have gotten through one pregnancy fine without any problems with your epilepsy.
With me I just talked to my neurologist, saw the GP and made sure I took folate which is the issue with my medication (Epilim), to prevent any neural tube defects. I am classified as high risk so I have had 4 ultrasounds including the NT scan at 12 weeks.
I did have to stop driving for 3 months after I started the meds but at my 3 months follow up my neurologist was happy with how I was going so she signed the form for the RTA and I was able to get my license back. It's not even restricted now.
I don't know if they will let me go full-term, at my last ob app I had a lovely doctor who said they will just monitor me. But so far there is no indication that there are any problems with my epilepsy so I am wanting to just let everything happen naturally.
Sorry if I have rambled a bit I just wish there had been someone I could have asked all this stuff when I first found out - so I am more than happy to answer all your questions!
