A Little Break - Or Pregnancy and Arthritis

I'm sure some astute regular readers may have noticed that I've not posted so frequently over the last 8 months. I haven't written about it before because this is a cooking/diet blog really and not a lifestyle blog, but, it's actually because I've been pregnant. Those months have trundled by and in a few days time, all being well, we will have a very much wanted little one. So, if you come on here and there are no new recipes - it's not because I'm not still Cooking with Arthur, it's just that I'm probably currently Nappy Changing with Arthur (or similar) and will be back soon!


PS.  At some point in the future, I may post about the trials and tribulations of being pregnant with psoriatic arthritis and auto-immune disease. If you think that would be an interesting or useful post (or have your own experience to share), let me know.

  2. Hope everything goes well - and, yes, posts about dealing with pregnancy and babies alongside chronic illness would be great. Not that they'll be any use to me but there will be plenty for whom it would remove concerns or doubts (one hopes, at least, that it wasn't bad enough to put you off another one ;-) )
    All the very best xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    1. Thank you Eileen for the good wishes. I will do a post, I didn't have the best experience of pregnancy but a lot of that was due to osteoarthritis and other medical issues rather than PA so hopefully I can be relatively upbeat about it! Having said all that, having a rubbish pregnancy means that I am absolutely adoring motherhood :)

  3. First of all, congratulations! I've been reading your blog for quite a while now and I love the recipes and posts about special gadgets for people with auto-immune diseases. Second of all, I would love to see posts about dealing with pregnancy and an auto-immune disease; I am a 23-year old woman with rheumatoid arthritis who wants to have children sometime in the future, and am trying to find as much information as I can about pregnancy + auto-immune diseases before that day comes.

    1. Thank you, really glad you like the blog. I will try and do a post about pregnancy soon whilst it's still fresh in my mind, I know I spent a lot of time talking to doctors and looking for info before I got pregnant so I'd be happy to share.
