I just found out I was pregnant. Do you know of any risks or complications FMS may add to my pregnancy?

I don't know the answer to your question, but CONGRATULATIONS!

Delete the dashes in the above listed web site (this site seems to arbitrarily add dashes)

Thank you, JJ1. The article really helped. I never thought of it going into remission but it sounds logical b/c I have a friend that her RA went into remission during her preg. This is my 5th preg (prev 4 all miscarriages). So if you pray will you lift on up for me? Thanks again.

Oh, what happy news! Congratulations!
I didn't know it at the time but when I
was pregnant with my son in 1975 I had
fibro. I got tired a lot more it seemed but
lots of pregnant woman do. But there were no complications and I had a very
healthy baby. All the best to you and my
prayers are with you.

Jaennie3. Thank you for the well wishes and prayers. And the encouragement that you had no complications. Take care.

Dwilmoth, nearly 100% of fibro patients have hypothyroidism that is undiagnosed . You can research this at the FibroandFatigue.com site or by reading Mary Shomons books on "Living well with Hypothyroidism -what your doctor doesn't you that you need to know" . Mary's books will explain what tests you need to avoid being part of the 90% of patients that are still sick because of doctor's ignornace. There is a strong connection to infertility and pregnancy problems with hypothyroidism. Another great site is "Stopthethyroidmadness.com" and Mary Shomon's site that gets 29 million hits a month- thyroid-about.com. Congrats and best wishes!

congrats, I went into remission after the first trimester with both my pregnancies and I am nowhere near as bad as when I got pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago. Even after 6 months of no sleep courtesy of my monster son lol

My first pregnancy was wonderful - my second I got pelvis pain and was miserable. My first ended in pre-eclampsia but that is family related, my second went full term
