Hi, welcome to HCM.
FSGS ( focal segmental glomerulosclerosis )during pregnancy may be associated with pregnancy. Is a treatable condition and can be cured. It may regress after pregnancy.
You just continue with pregnancy and medications advised by your doctors. Have regular follow up for best outcome.
Best luck.
