Pregnancy & Tysabri Help

I am looking for advice from people who have taken Tysabri while pregnant. I just started my 3rd trimester and I would like to continue taking Tysabri through the whole pregnancy. It is very hot where I live right now and I am scared that if I stop the Tysabri my symptoms will get much worse. I also do not want to harm my unborn child and am curious what others have experienced.

@lindsey_hutchison_gilfillan , I have no personal experience to call on but understand your concerns.

I found this piece of research which is fairly recent :-

and this Forum post from a few years ago :-

I hope this helps

@stumbler Thank you for the information!
