I'm 37 weeks pregnant & have been diagnosed with lupus for 7 years. My lupys has been very stable during my pregnancy & I have only been taking 1 plaquinel tablet daily. I gave had 2 incidents of a little mark appearing but it has faded of its own accord. I've been seeing a consultant throughout & he prescribed clexane injections due to me having the ro positive antibody.
He is planning on an internal check tomorrow & if my cervix is favourable (tmi sorry!) he will give me an induction date for my 38th/39th week. My question is- how did you cope with labour & lupus? I've got non lupus friends who have had their labours induced & it's lasted over 24hrs. I'm worried that after a long labour I won't have energy to push my baby out & lapse into a fatigue flare which will mean I won't be able to look after my baby.
Any tips/ hints/ suggestions? I know lupus is unpredictable, but its worrying!!!
