Well, I feel okay not great but okay. We will see Wednesday what is going to happen or if it will be more of a waiting game. I am scared. I want this baby to be okay. I know if I can make it to 35 weeks the baby will be fine. The big question is will I make it that far? So far no labor. Which is awesome since in the past I have always been in labor at least once by now. I still get random contractions but I think those are the practice ones since they are so different than the ones I had when in pre-term labor. Gosh what a difference having control of the lupus makes.
Now for the weird part. My rheumy told me to expect the RA to go into remission around 20 weeks and last until delivery. My RA is flaring right now. Actually so is my husband's arthritis problems. I am unsure why and wondering if anyone has any ideas?

If both you and your husband are having arthritis problems, maybe it's the weather or some dampness or chill or something elsewhere in your shared environment? food? mold? something aggravating you both would be my guess
