I don't have RA but I do have an inflammatory bowel disease that gave me terrible joint pain. I want to give you some encouragement - I know my postpartum experience (mostly before my inflammatory disease involved my joints) included terrible pain in my feet - I actually think this is pretty normal for women after pregnancy.www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8691182
And you should also know that many, many women without RA have wrist pain post-partum, probably from the way you are holding your baby: www.handwristcenter.com/dequervains-tendinitis.cfm
