I am 40 years old. I am having one 17 years old boy. After my first baby, I had three miscarriages and I did not get pregnant after. Unexpectedly, I got pregnant a few months ago and now I am in week 14. I had all the necessary tests, which came out normal except the anti-TPO. It is high 319, but I have a normal thyroid hormone test. I have a history of psoriatic arthritis and my gynecologist put me on medication for the rest of my pregnancy as follows. Nexium 40 mg once daily till week 36, Aspirin 75 mg one pill daily till week 36, Prednisone 5 mg once daily till week 32, Innohep 0.35 injections once daily till my due date, Folic acid 5 mg, Ferricure 150 mg once daily started from week 13, Omega 3 and Euro D 10,000 once a week. I am too much worried about my baby. Although, I wish to have another baby, I would like to make sure that my baby is healthy. After reading the side effects of Nexium and Prednisone during pregnancy on the baby, I cannot stop thinking that I may be harming my baby instead of giving protection. I really look forward to your opinion in my case. Thank you.
