I wish I KNEW I had HIV before being pregnant.
I'd have had time to read books about babies in my six remaining months of pregnancy, instead of having HIV research occupy my life. I'd have NOT been so moody, thinking about bringing a new life into the world and at the same time thinking I was dying. I'd plan a nursery room and have money put aside for my meds, which were more than $500 out of pocket monthly.
It would have been nice to know other HIV-positive women who were pregnant at the time so I didn't feel so alone.
