So my DH and I are not "officially" trying yet we are waiting for the go ahead from all my doctors. I have several autoimmune disorders: Crohn's, RA, and uvetitis.

My regular OBGYN has sent me to a high risk OBGYN for a preconception appointment...so I was wondering what should I ask...will he ask me questions or do I need to be prepared with my list.

My biggest concern is that my white blood cells will attack the fetus...as that what my white blood cells do, they attack the good things.

Any help would be great...I go to the doctor in less than a week.

Thank you all!

I can only speak on the RA. When I was pregnant my RA went into remission. It was wonderful, I was like a brand new woman! I still had the regular aches and pains from pregnancy but they were nothing compared to my RA. I was off of all of my medications but there are some that are still safe for pregnancy (Prednisone and Plaquenil come to mind). My preganancies were closely monitored by my OB and a high risk OB but were completely normal.

As for a preconception appointment, I would come prepared with questions (what to expect for monitoring and care, will they let you go to your due date or induce early, is a vaginal birth possible or a c-section reccomended) but the doctor will most likely give you a run down of how they do things.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!
