Hi Sam, was it a rhuematology consutant? If I were you Id have a talk to your GP. Im not sure about getting arthritis while you are pregnant, if its just a hormone thing, but Im sure someone on here will help you.

Hi Sam - here is an excellent medical article about RA and other autoimmune diseases during and after pregnancy - its a bit technical but some of it is clear...

The summary is interesting - it suggests to me that if you did have RA that the genetics in your baby might be different - and hopefully not have the same HLA genes that pre-dispose to RA. :)

This is because if your immune system had to adapt to stop rejection of your baby - then you would normally have seen any RA symptoms reduce during pregnancy.
