Seriously don't worry, I have had arthritis since 15 months old and been on all kinds of chemical nasties and got pregnant v v v quickly! Arthritis does not affect getting pregnant at all, I know no one with arthritis that has had any difficulty in fact it is strangely easy! You feel fab after the first trimester, you will no doubt have a chat about any meds you are on but I was kept on steroids and paracetamol during my whole preganancy. I was on tramadol prior to pregnancy and Indomethacin but I did have to come of those. I have an incredibly healthy huge baby boy, I am petite and he looks big on me! Don't worry!

Can I also add and this is just hearsay on some day time horrendous prog a woman who kept having multiple miscarraiges was given steroids during one of her pregancies and it prevented miscarriage, I can not seriously say if this is true or not, there may well be something online about it? Take a look into it because the very drug that helps some arthritics may help you carry to term, I really wish you the best. Don't worry about being creaky I am sure you will be a fabulous mummy :o)
