Hello to all,

I have been reading the messages left on the board, and you guys are so helpful. I too have found out that I am pregnant. I am now 10 weeks pregnant. I am researching the sites that were provided to leah and plan to ask my doctor about the Imuran, since I also have lupus nephritis. I've been on 20mg steroids for awhile, and both my doctors want me to continue stay on it. I have been so tired lately, I've been keeping my faith strong in the Lord. And asking that all my family and friends do the same.

Hallo Zhabi,

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on your pregnancy

:welcome:

I've moverd your thread to one of your own so you get more replies and don't get missed:wink2:.

I hope all continues to go well with the pregnancy. Is this your first? Are you seeing a high risk specialised obstetrician?

It is very normal to feel exhausted in the first trimester. Add lupus into the equasion, and you'll just need to be very gentle with yourself in regards to the fatigue. Rest when you feel you need it:blush:

All the very best, and keep us updated with how you are doing:rolleyes:

Congratulations! What a happy time... and tiring time. I recall some serious fatigue setting in around week 8 of my pregnancy which did abate as the experts will tell you will happen...by the 2nd trimester. I was so tired I almost had to pull over to sleep while driving back home from Chicago from a trip.

May the Imuran and steroids help keep your lupus nephritis at bay for the pregnancy and beyond - and you and your baby will be in my thoughts & prayers. Do your best to just enjoy this very special time - as I'm sure you're doing already!

Dear Zhabi, Hello and Well Done, I hope you have a lovely pregnancy but even if it is a bit difficult it is worth it!
