April 2013 ALT level was elevated. 
May 2013 ANA +, my ALT level went back to normal. 
I was then referred to a Rheumatologist.  The RE ran even more tests all were normal with the exception of my + ANA and elevated RNP (1.3).  My Smith Antibody was normal.  RE said that + RNP is the front gate to Lupus, Scleroderma, or MCTD.  RE said I may be in the very beginning phase of my disease.  My RE wants to see me once a year or sooner if I produce more symptoms. 
Did anyone else start their Lupus or any other Auto Immune disease like this?  Just trying to make sense of all of this.  
What kind of symptoms should I watch out for? 

History: 2002 positive for antiphospholipid antibody, Ectopic pregnancy. 2005 Placental Abruption with son (lost him), after birth positive for Anticardiolipin antibody. No longer positive. 2007 gave birth to beautiful daughter. 2012 miscarriage. 2013: ANA +, RNP +

Symptoms: heart palpitations, lightheaded, fatigue, body aches, headaches
