Hi Suzanne!

I'm still around, doing more "lurking" than posting, but was just reading about you thinking about getting pregnant--how exciting for you!  I wish you the best of luck and pray things turn out the way you hope for.  I'm doing very well, labs are good, meds are being tolerated, working my regular hours at the hospital plus more when people go on vacations, etc.  My 24 yr old daughter just moved back home, she had been engaged and living with her fiance's family for the past 5 yrs and just found out he was stepping out on her, she's being very strong, but hurting quite a bit.  She's working full time and going to school at night, so since the community college is just down the street from me we're room mates again--it's actually kind of fun!  Other news, my son is going to make me a grandma!  I'm so excited, they're due in May, this will be my first grandchild.

As far as my pregnancies, I noticed you were asking about people getting pregnant with lupus.  I hadn't been diagnosed yet when I had my kids, I think I was just beginning to start having some minor symptoms, I had Caleb when I was 25 and Rachel when I was 27.  Was spilling small amounts of protein at the time, but they thought it was maybe pregnancy related.  Then by the time I was 30, was spilling tons.  So, I had no pregnancy problems--although, they're still not diagnosing me with lupus, it's some "lupus-like" auto immune disease.  Whatever!

Again, you're in my thoughts, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! 

I hope everyone had wonderful holidays, I think of you all often!

Lori

Hi Lori!
I am so glad that things are working out for you after the transplant. I am doing better since the flare in march, and i docs are with me with the whole pregnancy thing. I'm so glad that you are able to be back at work, i dont know about you but the whole resting and recuperating thing was so very boring for me, and with moving its hard to find a new job. i actually had an interview yesterday for an administrative assistant position, but honestly i am very afraid to go back to work. i'm not sure if you read any of my other posts but it has not been going to smooth for me, the docs just diagnosed me with avascular necrosis in my hips and ankles and of course i have had them in my knees for several years now, and with doc appts and pain and just not feeling 85% ( i could only ever dream of 100%) i am afraid that i will not do well at any job and that is just not me. and the crazy thing is i really want this position but i am afraid of stress now, cuz it does crazy things to me and my emotions not to mention that's why i flared last time. i am very sorry about your daughter, thank goodness that she found out before she married the fool, the same thing happened to my hubby's cousin except he found out after they were married for two months and the reason she didnt tell him til then was because the evil b*&*h wanted the wedding and honeymoon. And also very much congrats on being a Grandma, Nana, Grams or whatever you decide what you wanna be called. I know that my parents were on cloud nine when my sis had her kids (but they refused to be called Grandma and Grandpa, they are only in their early 40's) so they are called Nana and Papa. we are still keeping our fingers crossed that all the tests say that we can have a baby and that if we get pregnant that everything goes alright and we have a healthy baby. please dont be a stranger. you and yours are in our thoughts and prayers.
Hugs and prayers,                      If it was easy being a lupie,
