Pregnant :)

I am PREGNANT !!!! 16 weeks for today and I am really excited. Actually its mixed feeling, I am anxious too..so many thoughts come to my mind. Its scary too wondering what next. Currently I am only on prednisolone 5mg. I stopped Enbrel as soon as I conceived. My joints are slightly swollen but its manageable.

I hope everything goes smoothly. Fingers crossed :)

Wishing everyone a pain free and healthy 2015 XX

Congrats somo!

I got pregnant after I'd had my RA 10 years. I took prednisolone all the way through to keep my flare at bay. My obstetriciàn said it was important for me to be well as healthy mum healthy baby. I have a gorgeous son. I would see if you can see an occupational therapist for hand splints if you don't already have them. Choose your pram very carefully. It needs to be light and easy to get in and out of a car boot or fold up easily for pyblic transport. I would also have a changing station on each floor of your home and a Moses basket/cot/bed.

Really pleased for you.

Take care kikideelili
