    Natasha,
    And how are you feeling, little mama? Do you know your due date yet? I'm sure enjoying holding my new little grandson. We'll all be overjoyed to see pics of your little one in a few months!

    Hello Francesca
    i had my son 3 years ago. I had a really good pregnancy. I did have to stop taking all medication but I felt great no flares at all the whole 9 months. I gained like 20 lbs he did come 3 weeks early but he was healthy and he weighed 5 lbs 2 oz. I did have to get an ultrasound every month but that was really cool my doctors just wanted to keep a close eye on my pregnancy. As soon as had him though i got really sick i couldnt keep any food down and they had to up my prednisone to 20mg a day which made me gain like 30 pounds which I am still fighting to get off. I hope i helped a little
    Lupus is not my problem, I gave it to God.
