I've had SLE & fibro for years. Just turned 35 and having my first baby. I'm only 8 weeks. My husband & i are happy but im so worried & anxious about continuing to take meds and the effect it my have on the baby. I've stopped azathorprine, just taking plaquenil & 5mg steroids. My symptoms are up and down but I have got sooooooooo depressed. I've been in bed 6 days as feel so low. Cant talk to anyone. I used to take anti-depressants but stopped them too. Has anyone had a baby whilst taking meds?? Does pregnancy stop flare ups? Any help would be appreciated.
