Re: Lupus and successful pregnancy?

I have had lupus since I was 14 years old. I am now 29. My husband and I want a family SO bad. I just went to go see a perinatologist on Tuesday for a 'prepregnancy consultation.' The thing with this is, I have done soooo much research on Lupus and pregnancy so I know the risks, however hearing him tell me the risks really had me petrofied. I know that dosen't make any sense especially if I already knew the risks. I just left the dr office, sat in my car and cried. My husband and I are still going to try even though we know the risks...The dr said one of his main worries with me is preeclampsia. We are not pregnant yet that I know of, but we are trying. I will keep you guys posted on how I'm doing if and when we finally become pregnant. Tammyd I wish you the best. Don't give up. We don't plan on it either.
