    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Was diagnosed when I was 4 months pregnant and only married for 5 months. It was so scary for all three of us and my whole family since no one in my family has or had breast cancer.

    Whether wait till full term or deliver a month early

    Decision Point

    Wanted me to get induced so could start my second round of chemo.
