I stumbled across your blog today as I have RA and am 23 weeks pregnant and think I'm beginning to have a flare :( I thought this wouldn't happen in pregnancy! Thanks for sharing your honest journey with an overwhelming thread of positivity. Was really nice to read something like this when I'm feeling a bit disheartened.
RACHEL: Turns out RA is a jerk even when you are pregnant. ~;o( Although lots of people go into remission when pregnant, some people still flare. I did during my third trimester when I was as big as a whale and on bedrest! But I will tell you that each and every minute spent in pain while pregnant is erased over and over again every time my amazing son laughs! Hang in there - I promise it will be worth it in the end! And please feel free to email me if you need more support to get you through the hard days! FromThisPoint.Forward@gmail.com
Thanks Mariah! Yes, I was diagnosed following a flare after my first was born, so know its totally worth it!
