Am feeling broody and DP is beginning to as well - which is great! But a bit nervous as I have type 1 diabetes, epilepsy and am being tested for some other cardiac and auto-immune conditions. Am hoping to start trying sometime next year. Would love to hear something positive about my chances of healthy pregnancy or just to hear from others who are thinking about trying in "uncertain circumstances" too. We are surrounded by nieces, nephews and much loved friends' children. I want one!
Hey hun I have hypermobility syndrome and hypothyroidism, both of which require regular medication like your conditions do! My best piece of advice is to go and talk to your GP about it, or bring it up with your consultant regarding your epilepsy. I do believe there is alternative medication they can put you on for the epilepsy depending on how severe it is, but you should discuss all aspects with the doctor! I think that as long as you take very good care of yourself and follow the advice of your doctors then there should be no reason why you can't have a good pregnancy and have the baby you both want Preparation is the key ;)
I have type 1 and had a pre-conception appt at the hospital which was very useful. I have a healthy 2 year old ds. Your pg is automatically more complicated and monitored than others but pg is an unpredictable thing and you never know how it will turn out even without underlying conditions. Go for it!
