27, Pregnant, and Diagnosed with RA

Last updated: October 2015

I was diagnosed with RA at the age of 27. I then found out I was pregnant two weeks later. My RA got WORSE with the pregnancy instead of going into remission like they thought it would. Because when I was going through this time in my life (my son is now 1) I couldn't find anyone with a similar story, I decided to created a blog about what I have went through, am going through now, and everything in between. Personally, when I found out, I thought my life was over (yes dramatic I know). My blog is here and I'd love it if you'd stop by my blog.
