Has anyone been able to become pregnant naturally, medicaly, etc.? How long did it take? Did anyone stay on their medications (Humira, Remicaid, etc.) throughout their pregnancy? Did anyone go into remission, or use any fertility drugs? I have never personally gone into remission, and after 14 years, I am still dreaming and hoping:-) Any advice would be great. My husband and I love children and have been married for 6 years, and are still hoping for at least one child naturally (we were fortunate enough to be able to adopt our first, and have been waiting awhile for our 2nd whether through adoption or natural. whichever comes first:-).

I haven't had any personal experience in the areas which you are asking for information. I do know that on the Crohn's Forum we have had several women take Remicade during their entire pregnancy. We have one woman that has had two Remicade babies. You might popover to the Crohn's forum and see if you can locate some of those threads using the search function. If I have time I'll try to find some of them and I'll come back and post some links.

Using the google search function with the words -  Remicade pregnancy - brought up lots of links to posts on the subject.
 
Here's a link to one where Stef17 replied. She is the gal that has had two Remicade babies:

The beautiful thing about arthritis is you never know where it's going to strike. I've had it for nearly 48 years and have had 2 kids.
My boys are now 30 and 36. I was about 23 when it went into remission and struck again a few years later in other joints. When I
was running and weight lifting it seemed to help a lot...now I don't think I could do either. I'm only 56 years old and have lived with
it most of my life. If you are in early stages Bromelain and Gluc/Chondrotion helps. Bromelain is an anti-inflamatory. I now use
Super Cissus RX, Bio-Sil and Malic Acid. These are a God Send as I now have fibro too. I'm off everything from the drs except
darvacet, which I only have to take once in a while. The Super Cissus RX rebuilds the damage and has a built in painkiller. The
Bio-Sil rebuilds the callogen in the joints and Malic Acid detoxes. It's better than taking the stuff from the drs.
