Well here's the deal.I'm bipolar and my wife has borderline personality disorder. We just found out she's pregnant.She's about six weeks along and we are very excited!I was wondering what the chances are of our child having a disorder like ours are? If anyone knows or has been through this please give me some advice...

Congrats, that is very exciting news indeed. I do know there is a chance for the disorder to be passed along, but it doesn't mean it will happen. You should talk to your pdoc about the likely hood, and to put your mind at ease.
