I have a confession to make. When I started this blog over a year ago, I started it with the purpose of writing about being pregnant with JRA. I had already started the process of weaning off my Arthritis medications in order to start a family and I felt lost and overwhelmed with the entire process. I longed for support and stories of other women who had been there before, but found very little. However, I realized I would not want to share the news of my pregnancy until I was past the first trimester. In addition to that, my life took an unexpected turn with a miscarriage and struggles with infertility. As a result I have been secretly blogging about my journey for the past year at Pregnant With JRA. Now that I am 17 weeks pregnant, I feel comfortable sharing my journey and I am hopeful that others who were in my same shoes will find support by reading my experiences. My experience of being pregnant with JRA has just begun and I will continue to blog and update at Pregnant With JRA.
