Fortunately, many patients with RA actually feel better during pregnancy. This does not always occur so be sure to discuss the benefits and potential risk of pregnancy with your doctors.

I compleatly understand. I am 27 and was just diagnosed with RA about a month ago. My husband and I are not trying yet but we planned on it in a couple years. I feel like I being punished for waiting until were in a better spot. I hope everything works out for you.
