I know there have been some women on here who have been on remicade during their pregancy and am wondering if they will share there stories with those who need more information about doing this?  We have new members who need info on this.

I've had 2 remicade babies and both pregnancies were GREAT! And both kids are healthy and perfect, if I do say so myself. I'm working on remicade baby #3. If anyone else wants detailed info please feel free to email me.

I am hoping to start my family in the next 2 years and have been terrified what might happen (part of the reason im holding off)!!Congrats on the success stories and Best of luck to those trying.. Please post updates for us to know how you are doing..
