I'm sorry that you've had to enter the Breast Cancer club and also the rarer experience of being pregnant at the same time!
I was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 12 weeks pregnant (on the same day as my scan) and as I'm sure you are finding out it is an emotional rollercoaster.
As others have said the health professionals will do everything they can to support you and if you have any concerns big or small then don't be afraid to contact them.
Due to being early on in the pregnancy I had a Mastectomy, 3 x FEC and 3 Taxotere chemo treatments whilst pregnant. My son was born, healthy after 40 weeks and is now 5 months old.
Please feel free to inbox me if ever you want to chat. I am also on the facebook group: Maria Hopkins - I have the pic with a cupcake next to my face .

hope you are hanging on in there. so sorry to hear your diagnosis. i am 37 and discovered my 'lump' when breastfeeding my baby (now 5mths). i am now almost half way through chemo (3rd this friday) and doing ok. surgery is to follow for me then radiotherapy. i'm sure things are happening like greased lightening, i was amazed by how quickly the process has gone so far, but i hope you are able to cope. i wish you well and hope you have some answers and a plan now. hugs xxxx
Hi LG1, so sorry to hear this. It's utterly devastating when you're first diagnosed, and to be pregnant it must be a nightmare. There are a few lades on the Younger breast Cancer Network (YBCN) on facebook who have had chemo during pregnancy. Search the public page Younger Breast Cancer Network (UK) and email the admin asking to join the private group (only private group members will see your posts). Big hugs xx
