First of all, Welcome - I'm glad you found us! And there are a couple of women on here that I'm sure will chime in later this evening with their experiences, but in the mean time to tide you over...
Most people seem to try Remicade first (myself included). It was a wonder drug for me for a little over two years. I found enough women on this site, and through my research, that I was completely prepared and comfortable getting Remicade through any potential pregnancy. There are suggestions as far as time windows (i.e. try to plan to get pregnant immediately after an infusion, and make it as far through the first trimester as you can before your next infusion, etc.) but I'll let Stef17 or someone that's been through it lay all that out for ya. Bottom line is - there are lots of "Remicade Babies" out there and they are doing JUST FINE.
Humira hasn't been around as long, so it's harder to find people who have had "Humira babies", but there is a Pregnancy Registry for Humira and they are really trying to get a handle on how things go with that... might just be a little harder to find hard data on that one.
The first two years on Remicade were amazing for me, and had I been with my (now) husband and in the right "place" - that would have been the ideal time for ME to get pregnant. Fate didn't really work out that way, but I'm crossing my fingers for another "window" of feeling-good-oportunity.
(oh, and just in case you see my signature about
the miscarriage and think I'm full of hooey... the Remicade stopped working for me before several months before I got preggo - and then I flared during the pregnancy/miscarriage because I didn't see much point in continuing it if it wasn't working anymore, etc. I'm on Humira now, and hoping that it works so hubby and I can try again before too terribly much longer... I'm giving it a good six months of "YES I FEEL GOOD" before I get preggo again!)
