Fliskoraphy Vlog 36 Rheumatoid Arthritis and Pregnancy

January 14, 2020 0 By Jose Scott


Hello out there this blog today’s going to be
about rheumatoid arthritis and pregnancy I did the best research that i could, it
took me a long time to find a lot of my old documentation and took some time to
actually find out some actual facts on the medical conditions that i develop also and also a few pointers some information to hopefully help you along
your journey with your pregnancy or trying to get pregnant be prepared to
talk to your doctors about this and you’re gonna be told no will take into
consideration that no actually can mean NO, depending on what chronic illness
or severe disease that you have. . For me and rheumatoid arthritis, my rheumatologist told me no, “i advise against it”. . . . . . . was his words and I
just kind of was like “you know what I don’t believe that for a second”. especially
when I was a holistic an all natural and my life is actually got better and I’m
not lying I still have my bad days but it’s gotten better like I’ve been gone
to the ER yet. Anyway, getting off track You should have a rheumatologist, a ob-gyn, a pediatrician, a rheumatologist to keep you in check and your levels in check. and make sure you know you’re good Then your ob/gyn to make sure you and your baby are good and that a pediatrician who make sure your baby is good but you
don’t have to get pediatrician until You are about, oh,I don’t know I’ll say 30 to weeks 41 weeks, 41weeks the latest I guess You want a pediatrician to ensure your
child’s development and health you also want to make sure whether you want to
have a child circumcised or not you know there’s just a lot of things that you
gotta talk with pediatrician if-so-in-facto anything, really, be aware of being off
medication. yes, being off your medication or taking certain medications that are in tiny-tine doses, or Tylenol, like Children’s Tylenol not Tylenol, CHILDREN’s Tylenol or tiny
doses of painkillers, NSAIDs and your doctor your
ob/gyn is also gonna be a little picky about the certain amount of supplements
that you taking they might tell you to stop taking these. . . now after three to
four months into my pregnancy my inflammation and pain decreased but it didn’t go away, it decreased, which was nice actually I was actually happier, in bliss, and just AMAAAZING! like “LAAAAAA”. but, it can also go into remission but I wouldn’t bank on it
think of it because it didn’t happen for me it does happen and some women but not
everybody so try not to get your hopes up bank on that but do take into
consideration that your rheumatoid arthritis while having a child and then giving birth then, (oh, itchy). . .
giving birth it can go into remission and go like: Your good, you got no more pain also never do things alone when you’re pregnant and
have a rheumatoid arthritis, like take a bath when you take a bath your muscles are relaxed your
there’s also a period to about how many weeks later into your pregnancy when you should not take a bath or sometimes your doctor will say take a bath maybe it’ll
help your child flip, instead of being breached it’ll-he- she, she- he will flip and you’re good to go for natural labor now heavy lifting
don’t do it with your rheumatoid arthritis your joints are in weak, in your
pregnancy you don’t want so harden on your child or put any strain on your belly
like that, and usually the doctor’s advise that kind of precaution a little later and your pregnancy
between four to six months they’ll start saying stuff like that, im sorry, my throat is just horrible, still congested, still sick be prepared for having any kind of like
gestational or postpartum medical conditions what I mean by that is, well,
what is gestational? gestational means that. it is while you’re pregnant. then postpartum is after you have your child. It is, there are certain medical
condition that usually goes away during gestation period, it will go away when
you have your child, some times it doesn’t go away and your stick with it, that’s just the way that the dice rolled, you know? for example. . like. . gestational diabetes, means being diabetic while pregnant sometimes it will go away, it went away for me but I felt like it lingered to a point because I gained weight so quickly after
my second child, so you got to be aware of your health status if your gonna be having another one (baby) our second child was a surprise which
was actually really fun and nice, a lot easier than, you know, I
don’t know, anyway, Gestational Orthostatic Hypotenstion I had that, what that is, its that, where your heart beats slower per minute slows down and that happened to me severly a few times during my first pregnancy, my first pregnancy was
so rough I was in the ER at least a dozen times throughout that pregnancy, it was rough, it was really horrible, so, always communicate with allllllll of your doctor’s, communicate with them because you want to tell them how you
feel physically, number one physically then number two mentally, then number three emotionally, because your ob/gyn, if you break down and cry in front of him he’ll understand he deals with women all the
time being pregnant and not knowing how to go through life on your first
pregnancy. realize thats what they’re there for they are a team of doctors and I was blessed
with the doctor that I had it and he is an amazing doctor and he delivered both of our boys and it was just- he got me he got that I have RA, that I
had certain medical conditions in my younger years and got he just got it you just don’t know top notch, is on top of his sh!t and he
doesn’t mess around and he was really real with me he didn’t pussy foot around
a whole lot he just told me the facts and said how do you want to go about it and I like that kind of person I i am. . . . . .now be prepared for pain yeah, after you get off medication and you start trying to have children and if you go cut cold turkey off medications, well, not cold turkey
but how doctors say- “wean off medications” when that happens be prepared for pain, because. . . One: you might not get pregnant right away Two: there might be a situation where
you might have to do invitro because you’re rheumatoid arthritis, your
reproductive system or your partner’s reproductive system so
that’s usually a sensitive topic but you gotta be compassionate about it and
understanding. . . people can’t, you know, can’t judge a person based upon their
reproductive system because of their medical condition, thats just, pretty shallow, now. . . just do a lot of healthy, natural, holistic things to keep you balanced during your pregnancy and
having rheumatoid arthritis and *cough* scuse’ me be aware of the dangers too *cough* i’m so sorry, god dang it, be aware of
the dangers during child’s development the growth in the womb and then after
childbirth equally, because having rheumatoid arthritis it could also give
your child a medical condition or give you a medical condition because you’re
already lacking that nutrition or your body has to work harder for your baby
but it’s still not good enough you know is just circumstantial stuff like that but your doctors, when you have good doctors they’ll be on top of it when you
do your research and shop around for doctors it’ll, it will play in your favor, trust me, the number one key, to going through rheumatoid arthritis and having your child, get LOTS of REST and do not be afraid to say I need rest So, have lots of sleep, lots of naps, down time, if you have to, do not be afraid to do that because the more you do that the better odds of both of you, you and your child being healthy andsuccessful through your pregnancy, okay, now, be aware of some physical damage from your rheumatoid arthirtis and being pregnant. if you’re not on medication, and like I said
new medical conditions that are not preexistant that are not gestational you could develop postmartum Sorry, almost swallowed my cough drop, also you know, do the research, dont just watch my video, watch everybody’s video watch everybody’s experience at least thatway you get the feeling like: Oh, my god, i’m not alone in this. . try to do this, other women have tried,
succeeded and unfortunately some women tried it and have failed. I shouldn’t say failed, that’s kind of mean that just are less fortunate also, get books or audio books, when you have a child you’re not going to have the time to read sometimes books on pregnancy rheumatoid arthritis
and yes even books on mental and emotional health for later development.
for your child’s development for yourself because now you’re taking on a
new family member into your guys’ life instead of just rheumatoid
arthritis and relationship and whatever else happens in your life, now, don’t be
scared to ask for help never be scared to ask for help, ever,
always ask for help because, the more help you have the less stressed it is for
you or your child and you know it’s different for women, your first pregnancy will be tough or
your second pregnancy will be tough it would be hard, to get through or your first one will be
easy or your second one will be, it’s kind of a you know, a flip of a coin really that’s all I got
