Holy shitballs. If I had a disease that I knew I could pass onto my child, I would take the chance. And I have. Medicine has come so far. But! Guess what disease you can pass on that medicine can't fix? Stupidity, and OP you have plenty of it.



Whatsarahsaid: Go have your baby. There are so many risks and chances that we take in life, that nothing is ever 100%. Your happiness and your willingness to bring a child into this world to love, and share your experience and knowledge with, is what matters. That other "woman's" opinion, is just that. An opinion. I am sure by the time your daughter is born, there will be some advance in medicine that will make your disease more than manageable. If you have support from your family, and even if you don't, do what is best for YOU and not everyone else.



And OP, grow up. I hope you don't pass on your hatefullness towards others to your children. Your closed-mindedness and inability to be empathic and compassionate has really hurt a woman who was only seeking a friend. One day, when you come face to face with a situation like this regarding your offspring, think back to these conversations. I truly hope you don't tell them to shut up and go die.

Bahaha these threads make me giggle.
But I just wanted to add that my husband has Neurofibromatosis, which can vary greatly in severity. His sister has it as well and hers is very mild, but DH's is more serious.
There's about a 50% chance of passing this onto your offspring.
My husband and I have two kids together and neither of them have it.

I have MS and have one child and one on the way. Is there a POSSIBILITY I could pass it on? Yup. Would I change my decisions? NOPE.



Suck it OP, troll.

If everyone who had any form of diseases, or disorder that caused pain decided not to reproduce we would end the human race pretty quickly. Good luck pairing up 2 people with no mental health or physical health history problems. I love ignorance. I have my own opinion on a few diseases, I have a friend who found out her SO was HIV positive, I advised her to use contraceptive as she could get it herself, and if she did and got pregnant she could pass it on to her LO. But she and her SO have since had 2 children together. Do agree with them to take the risk, really I don't know, I don't think I would have chanced it but NOT MY DECISION TO MAKE I informed her of what I knew NICELY and left it up to her. I now have 3 beautiful healthy God Children out of her chances and she is still HIV NEGATIVE thank God, but it's up to them not me, all I can do is pray that everyone stays healthy

<blockquote><b>Quoting Chuck Bass:</b>" If the disease you are talking about it endometriosis, I wouldn't let that in particular deter me from ... [snip!] ... its treatable, and there is 50% chance of having a boy anyway. Now if it were something like HIV, I definitely would not."</blockquote>




! Endo runs in my family and I have it as well. Along with other complications that are passed down. I've always worried that my daughter could have it and suffer like me and ny other family memebers but I know that it makes us stronger. Thank God I'm having a boy and I don't need to worry about it for now but like this person said if it was something like HIV I wouldn't.

Well, I did. And I will again.



I have asthma, hypothyroidism, diabetes, acid reflux, and bad seasonal allergies
SO has thrombocytopenia. My mom has high blood pressure.
But, for most things there are ways to prevent it.

If I would have been diagnosed with bipolar before I had kids, no I wouldn't have. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. It's all hell. But, I love my kids dearly and i'm so thankful things worked out as they did. I almost went to the doctor when I was 13 for it, but I didn't. I know the meds are not safe during pregnancy, so maybe it was a blessing in disguise. I just really, really, really hope it's not passed onto my kiddos. It's hard enough for me to deal with myself.
