In brief: Yes!

Most risks are maneable.
It is difficult to get pregnant if you have active disease. Most women are quite with disease activity, before they get pregnant. However, there is a frequent flare in the last trimester, whicch usually subsides after parturition. You need to be screen for antiphospholipid antibodies if you become pregnant. Your rheumatologist and ob/gyn doctors can work in tandem.
