I would really love to hear from anyone who has been in this situation before because I am not sure if taking these drugs while pregnant is safe.

I took both while pregnant with my son. Women have been taking these meds while pregnant for over 40 years. There is a slight risk with Imuran during early pregnancy and Prednisone slightly increases the risk of PROM (premature rupture of membranes) but both risks are lower than the risks associated with uncontrolled lupus. At least that was what my doctors all said. Understand I am not a medical professional only a patient.
