I'm Lisa and I have lupus as well. I'm so happy to see that you have two healthy children. Being on this board gives me so much hope. I just lost my baby 2 weeks ago today. I was 23 weeks 3 days. I developed preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome. After reading stories on here and other stories on the internet, I see that my condition could have been managed if I had more competent doctors. My lupus was totally in remission before pregnancy and throughout the entire 23 weeks. Well, that is until I developed HELLP. I got very sick and am just now recovering. It's nice to be on this board with other women who not only have lupus but who are pregnant. I am hoping to become pregnant ASAP. I really think having another baby right away will provide so much comfort. I don't have any children and was so happy being pregnant and looking forward to being a mommy. Keep us posted throughout your pregnancy. I am sending prayers your way for a healthy pregnancy and healthy delivery!

p.s. nice to meet you!
