Hi guys. i am 29 and i was diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer in September 2011. I had surgery to remove the tumour and had 6 months of chemotherapy. I did not have any side effects at all from the chemotherapy treatment. Prior to being diagnosed my husband and I had been trying for a baby for a year without success. During and after chemo, every contraception I used was making me bleed. the oncologist told me I waould be infertile for a while so I decided to ditch contarception as it was making me bleed. Guess what I have just found out that I am 6 weeks pregnant (my first). That is 5and a half months after chemo and only a month afer coming off contraception. I didn't think it would happen that soon. I am so excited but worried at the same time. did anyone out there get pregnant soon after chemo? will my baby be ok? if u have a similar story to share, please do. I am driving myself insane and I don't think i can cope with 9 months of worry. thanks for taking time to read

I haven't but good luck with it all and hope everything works out for you, you sounds like you need something good after everything that's happened

Aw well if everyone waited until the 'right' time then there would be a lot less children in the world. Something always gets in the way but you just have to think stuff it, if its what you want you'd move mountains to make it happen and nothing can stand in your way.
Same with the chemo, you sound like a fighter so that'll be a good quality in pregnancy and motherhood
I agree u don't choose to have a baby a baby picks you. You have had the a most horrifying year. Your sliver lining is a baby that is goin to change your life and bring so much joy, happiness and love in your life. Am so excited for you once you see your wee baby roo bouncing about on that black and white screen everything your feeling now will disappear.
