I wish I had first hand experience to help you.... All I know is that every pregnancy, even for those without health issues, are different each time. It could very well be that your lupus is more active right now. Your body is going through a lot! I think you need to speak to your obgyn. I wish your phones were working. That must concern you.
Is there any way I can email you personally? I would really like to talk to someone about pregnancy and lupus and all our complications. I have no one to talk to who really KNOWS what the process is like, and what to expect. I would love to be a mom, but my APS presents extreme challenges. I'll be 34 in a few months and my clock is ticking like a time bomb. Just feeling lonely and upset that my options to be a mom have been taken away.... Who in ever would even let me adopt a child with my medical history? I'm really having a lot of trouble getting through this stage of my life. If you would rather keep our talks to the forum I understand. Just wanted to ask. You can email me. My address is public.
I hope you get some answers soon Redrose. Just try to rest as much as possible.. (((hugs)))
