Having rash, mildly elevated AA during pregnancy. Worried about lupus. Suggestions?

I have overwhelming anxiety about developing lupus. I had a mildly elevated A A while I was pregnant. I have had 3 pregnancies with no complications. All were term and healthy. I also had a positive lupus anticoagulant . My doctors have tried to reassure me but every so often I go through this cyclical obsessive anxiety about having lupus and dying. It subsides after a while but I am in a worry cycle right now because of a rash that I have. I have a hard time getting labs drawn because I worry about the wait time and fearing positive results.

the biggest reassurance for you is that you have gone thru 3 pregnancies without complications, which would not have been possible had you had clinical lupus
