I am very glad I never know I had this disease before I had my 2 boys. They are awesome!!! Neither has the disease. It may happen it may not.
Each time you have a child you will never know if they will be healthy or not. it is always a gamble, we do our best to give them the best start possible and hope they are healthy.
I say go for it.... you won't regret it.
If my Mom had known the risks and still had me I would not be angry. We have recently realized my Grandma on my Dad's side probably had Crohn's. She still took the chance and my sister does not have the disease.
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 Started Humira June 2008 (have been on other cd meds)
Diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia May 2007 on Soma and Lyrica

I agree to leave it in God's hands.
I have a son who I love with all of my heart. I was diagnosed years after having him and I would not trade having him for the world. I hope and pray he does not get Crohn's, but there are also so many other things that can happen in this world...you just never know.
As of right now, I am the only person in my family to have Crohn's.
IF I ever found the right man (IF being the key word here, I have *horrible* luck with men) I would consider having another child, God willing.
I wish you and your boyfriend the very best!
