the diagnostic period is the worse! i was diagnosed with systemic lupus in october when i was 7 weeks pregnant. i also have reynaud's phenomenon which made visiting my family up north a problem. it sounds like your anti ds-dna antibodies came back negative. that is the most definitive test for sle, but there are several other tests that can point towards a sle diagnosis. autoimmune disorders are so hard to pin point i know it can feel frustrating.

technically, you won't be diagnosed til your see your rheumatologist. i wish you luck and i hope you find out soon enough!
