Lainy, I am absolutely amazed that your rheumy doesn't think you need to see an OB/GYN with regard to getting/staying pregnant. Is he going to monitor you? That's not his area of expertise. BTW, multiple miscarriages are often associated with lupus....and since you're undifferentiated, there could be some lupus in the mix. One miscarriage may not mean anything, but you need to be working with a doctor who really knows his/her stuff with regard to preganancy and AI diseases. You owe it to your baby and yourself. Geeze! I want to kick your rheumy! Where does he live? (just kidding)
If you haven't had any stomach issues with the Plaq. yet, you may very well be home free. For me and others I've spoken to, we got queasy at the very beginning, but it soon stopped. Plaq. must like you! Be patient. It does take a while to kick in.
Please do some research on UCTD. Today rheumys like to hit it hard right at the beginning, like Plaq. with MTX or something else that suppresses the immune system, so that it doesn't morph into something else. Studies have shown this approach is much more successful than treating with Plaq. alone. Unfortunately, that didn't work for me, but you could be more successful, as many are. Your doctor's comment about the OB/GYN really makes me wonder about how competent he is. It's really, really important that you educate yourself so you can be a partner in your care.
