I'm 9 weeks pregnant and have just been diagnosed with Lupus. I have suspected I had an autoimmune disease for a couple years but have never even considered lupus. My MIL has it and she is really sick and so I thought "I'm not that sick, so I'm sure it's not lupus". I'm still in shock and kinda in denial. Now that I look closely I can see the butterfly rash on my face .

I'm really scared. I don't want to be like my MIL. She is on so many medications and is always in pain. I'm scared for this baby. I developed pre-e with DD and I'm afraid I will get it earlier with this pregnancy.

I'm hoping someone on here has lupus and leads a normal life.
