Welcome to my pregnancy with Fibromyalgia vlog series, this is week 24!
As a third time mama doing pregnancy with fibromyalgia I have been sharing my journey in case it helps you.
When I was pregnant for the first time in 2013, I would have loved to hear another mamas experience, read a book or take a course to help me cope.
In the absence of these things, I created my own.

Pregnancy with Fibromyalgia Week 24 Video
It is so exciting to achieve week 24, as this is the point where the hospitals consider baby “viable” if something were to happen and they came early. Certainly as week 24 has continued I am noticeably less worried and now focusing on my affirmations for birth.
As I note in the video, I have created some birth affirmation cards, but I will not put these in my Etsy store as they are very personalised. I do have these general Fibromyalgia affirmation cards for use in meditation though.
I have been struggling with the lack of mobility and ability to achieve much, despite the Fibromyalgia, I have always been busy and trying to do all the things. So it’s a lesson in patience, particularly with myself.
In the beginning I make it clear that my story is not going to be the same as everyone’s and even this pregnancy is different than my other two due to Low Dose Naltrexone. It is helping me sleep, even though it is still very broken by pain and bathroom stops, it is still better than before. If you want to purchase my mini eBook, which includes research, my experience, some information about LDN and pregnancy and my one year update, find it here.
I also mentioned my book Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia, available now.
