I was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of nine. I am now 44 with four beautiful children. You just have to remember to take care of yourself as much as your baby. Get with your dr, because of your meds. When I had my children I had made the hard decision not to breast feed. I was taking my meds and I was afraid the children would stay hooked on the meds. I never found out if my meds had gone into my milk. So good luck and have fun trying.

It depends on what meds you're taking for your epilepsy. I've heard a lot of them can make it hard for you to conceive. Others do almost the exact opposite and make birth control pills less effective, so let your neurologist aware that you're trying to get pregnant.

Google could probably help you some too. I'm sure plenty of women have been in similar situations.

Good luck :)
