Any one else struggling with the decision to get pregnant? I have had a hard time getting back under control since i had my daughter a year ago. I definately want more kids, but my husband is really stressed about putting my body through it again, especially if i finally do get back into remission. We have decided that i need to stay on my remicade irregardless, and I know it is supposed to be safe to be pregnant on remicade, but i still worry about down the line side effects. I guess I am feeling guilty because i wonder if i am being selfish in wanting another child. should i just be happy with the wonderful daughter i already have, not to mention my wonderful husband who would have to take on a lot if i get really sick again? I guess i just dont know what top think or to do. Help!!!
