I am happily married and both my husband and I have a case of baby fever. You may be saying, "What is the problem pop out a kid and cure your acute case of baby fever". Well, here come the challenging part. I have Cystic Fibrosis. Now this is not the end all be all for my baby desires. In face these days more and more women with Cystic Fibrosis are having one, two, or even more children. In fact, I follow several blogs written by these very women. The problem lies in the fact that doctors recommend women have FEV lung function 50% and higher in order to get pregnant. Here is the kicker. I have numbers that hover around 46%-49%. Ahhh so close and yet so far!!
***For those of you without CF knowledge and are concerned that I have less than 1/2 of my lungs let me explain. FEV is the amount of air a person can blow out in 1 second, not the amount of air they have in their lungs. The amount of air I blow out in one second is only 46% of what I SHOULD be blowing out in one second. ****
You may be saying, "What is the big deal? Work harder and improve your one second blow." As any CFer knows, it is not that easy, but as you will find out throughout this blog that I intend on doing just that! I have a very extensive action plan and you can have the enjoyment of seeing if it works!
