Don't give up and it is an excellent idea to check for a dr. on the Lupus.org advisory board. Please oh please see a hi risk ob to follow your future pregnancy closely. Find one who treats AI. I have lupus and antiphospholipid antibody syndrome and lost 5 babies because of it. The specialist I finally saw, in grief and desperation, said had I seen him after my second miscarriage, it could have been sucessfully managed with prednisone and heparin. But by the time I had my fifth loss in 5 years, he felt my antibodies, that come and GO!!!!! (a good dr. should KNOW that this is an expected characteristic of AI illness and doesn't mean.... a. you're not sick and b. you're CURED of whatever you imagined you had...) would likely be triggered by another pregnancy itself. It still hurts and I am grateful to God that I had 2 healthy daughters before my APS dx. Take care,
God knows, even if I don't....
