Pregnant w/Lupus flare, breastfeeding while doing treatment.

I am on sterioids right now at 27 weeks pregnant, thankfully just stopped my Lasix. Most likely we'll have a premie, hopefully not a really young preemie, but chances are high. Anyone have advice with milk supply while doing treatment for Lupus.

    You may find your lupus calms after the birth. Mine did- they induced me due to a lupus flare, but within a week of delivery, I was able to wean off all meds. I had a minor flar about 2 minhs ago, and it was easily treated with a predinisone taper, which is safe for use while nursing.

    Mines Lupus Nepritis & they will do kidney biopsy after birth to figure out treatment. I am thankfully not on Lasix anymore, just as needed, found it was really sucking my breast dry, which can't be good for supply after baby. :-/
