VP shunt/Chiari with pregnancy?

Hi guys!

I am 25 about to be married in September. I do have a VP shunt and a Chiari. Have an y of you experienced complications or increase in symptoms with pregnancy? We're hoping to start a family soon!

I do not have a shunt, and I did not know I had Chiari when I was pregnant 2 years ago, but I actually felt alot better when I was pregnant, all my symptoms slowly started to return about 4 months after I had my daughter.

I was the same. I didn't know I had Chiari when I was pregnant with my son in 2009. But while I was pregnant I started losing the feeling in my hands and feet. But that was the only thing that got worse for me. Everything else was either better or the same.
