hey ladies, I'm new to just mommies....been lurking around but really just been posting in wttc...hopefully in next couple of months that will change

Anyway in 2005 at the age of 30 I was diagnosed with full osteoporosis just a few months after having my baby girl. I know its rare at my age and hoped that after my body fully recovered from the pregnancy and all the calcium my sweet girl stole from my bones it would be different but it wasn't. My issue is that my body does not process calcium...lots in a urine catch but very low in blood. So I'm worried and don't know much about it and don't go back to the dr until November...if pregnancy can weaken bone, what happens when they are already weak?

Just looking for anyone that might know something about this and have advice or maybe if I'm lucky some encouragement.

Thank you!!!

I'm so sorry to hear about this! I don't know very much about osteoporosis or how it is managed... are you on any medications now to help your body absorb the calcium better? I would definitely talk with my general practitioner or family doctor to talk about what you can do, especially during a pregnancy, but I'm sure there are women in your situation who have been able to manage osteo and pregnancy at the same time! Good luck, keep us posted on how things are going, and I hope you graduate from wttc soon!

Im not currently on meds (partly because I haven't been to dr in so long). I had a dexa scan yesterday and will know more when that comes back. I also have an appt scheduled in November with my OB to discuss any special concerns with and the osteo. Plus I had HG with both of my kids and have to prepare for the likely 9 months of sickness to come. (hopefully)

I'm so ready and scared there will be a problem and its not real common to make it easy to find info on. Most with osteo are most menopausal...i'm the abnormal one lol
