Shouldn't, but...: Your disease should not effect your pregnancy, but some forms if ectodermal dysplasia are inherited. You may need to meet with a genetic counsellor to discuss your risk.

Ectodermal dysplasia: Ectodermal dysplasia consists of the triad of sparse hair, no (or few sweat) glands and absent (or a few ) teeth. It is a recessive x-linked transmission and therefore the full expression is seen in boys. Partial expression may be seen in female carriers due to random inactivation of the x chromosome. I believe that you have the latter form of the disease and therefore pregnancy may be safe.
