My Mom and I were both diagnosed when our first born was a year old, but we both showed signs as children. I have 2 daughters who both show signs but nothing to the point of testing. Holding my breath until they have kids! My Mom's cousin has CD and her son has UC. Their uncle, my great uncle had what was called before he died, TB of the intestine. This was before Dr. Crohn's discovered Crohn's. So a big family history on my maternal side since I don't really have many relatives at all. And just recently, my Father was Dx with AS, so I'm waiting for that shoe to drop too, since that can run in families too and is an auto immune disease. Both my parents were only children and I only have an adopted sister, so biologically I am an only child.
