My mother had UC (has a colostomy) she had my brother when she was 18 and I do not belive she had active UC at that time, he is now 42 and does not have UC. My mother had me when she was 28 and was flaring while pg w/me and I was dx'd with mild UC in 2000 when I was 24 (hers was severe, mine is not even close to being as bad as hers). She had my sister when she was 33 and was even more sick w/her than with me, my sister is now 26 and does not have UC.
I am 1 of 3 and do have it but it is milder than hers. Also, I worry about passing that down to my children. Hopefully my future children will get my husband's colon.
