Discuss with your husband how to convey to the docs, et al that you are working as a team so that the docs, et al can feel more assured that the baby's interests are protected even if you have some recurrence of your symptoms--that your husband and maybe another friend or relative are there as the "safety net". If you are direct with the docs about all of this, I would hope that they would have more confidence in you because you are acknowledging the risks and vulnerabilities your illness does potentially pose, and you are doing what you need to do to ensure that supports are in place.

You might want to think of joining up with a maternal-child support service like visiting public health nurses or early intervention programs, or a new moms' support group. Every state in the US has early intervention services of some kind--it is mandated by federal law. Call your state health and human services to find out about what is available in your area. Or the ob or ob nurses might be able to tell you.

I guess the bottom line is "be proactive".
