Possibly,talk to doc: Etanercept is a pregnancy safety class B which means that it appears safe in animal studies.(A is the safest which means there's data that it is safe in human pregnant females).It is in a safer category than predinsone and NSAIDS (both categ C).There is a registry following women and babies exposed to etanercept in pregnancy.
