Hello to all of you! I hope you are well. Just thought I would post and let everyone know I am 36 weeks tomorrow & our baby girl who we decided to name Emma Elizabeth is doing just fine :) I am eager for this to be over to I can hold my daughter but Im also not looking forward to Lupus being a fulltime part of my life again. I have been remissive with the pregnancy for the most part and felt as normal as I have in a very long time. What worries me most is having another seizure with hormone fluctuation like at the beginning of the pregnancy and the lupus getting worse. I finally am seeing a rheumy locally as well as my initial rheumy and they are going to work together to try and keep everything at bay. I am staying on the Keppra & Plaquenil while I breastfeed & there's talk of using prednisone if need be until I get the tests done for IBD & see what other kind of med we can use on a long-term basis after I am done breastfeeding. Guess well just have to see how everything goes. Other than really tired & moody I am feeling pretty good really but tired of being preggo! lol I will update again after the birth of the baby and be sure to post more pics of everything :) The profile pic up now was taken at 33 weeks 5 days and Emma was 4lbs 6ozs at that point. Ill have to get a new profile pic of myself up there so you can see my big bump lol Hope you all have a wonderful day and God Bless! :) Brittanee

I am so happy for you. Good luck and I pray that everything goes perfect for you in the next several weeks. Enjoy your baby girl and have a speedy recovery and I hope that the Lupus stays minimal for you.
