In brief: Yes

Active Rheumatoid Arthritis increases pregnancy risks for pre-eclampsia, hypertension and other problems during pregnancy.
The good news is that many women (around 50%) with RA go into remission during pregnancy. For those who don't, RA can be treated but medication options are much more limited. Best wishes!
