I was diagnosised at age 16 and had a baby at age 29. I had kidney involvement back then and was due to start prednisone treatement when the edema subsided. I haven't had any flare-ups since then except for some skin rashes here and there. I developed HELLP syndrome at 32 weeks (7 months) and the baby had to be born permature. He is doing fine and I have recovered 100%. There is no evidence that Lupus caused the pregnancy induced hypertension, but it didn't help! I have been advised that there is no proof this will happen again, it may or may not. I am 33 right now thinking about having another...it is a hard decision.
