Recently diagnosed whilst pregnant sad & angry - grade 3 47m being induced tomorrow(38w) age 38.

Trying to focus on baby but very anxious that cancer has spread. I can’t have ct or bone scans until baby is out so don’t know my chances yet. Feeling very up and down, don’t want to be labelled a sick person and am determined to blast through my chemo so I can get back to my 3 kids but today I just feel low.

Hi Louise


I hope it all goes well tomorrow and that you are able to cherish your baby and appreciate him or her before you have to concentrate on your own health. Of course you are sad and angry and you have every right to be.


Please let us know how you get on and please ask anything once you know what your treatment plan is.


Thinking of you.
