Preg/autoimune dx: If Hasimotos check thyroid function. Hypothyroidism makes pregnancy/fetal life harder . If ANA + check for anti-phopholipid antibodies -it increases rate of miscarriage; some are on aspirin low dose through 34-36 weeks pregnancy. Check for anticardiolipin antibodies as well.F/U w/ rheumatologist -pregnancy expert . Dr Jill Buyon -NYU or Dr. Salmon -H of spec surg . www.lupus.org
