Talk to your doctor: Talk to your CF doctor and your high-risk obstetrics doctor. Making your nutrition the best and controlling lung infections are crucial and adjusting your medications for best safety while pregnant are important. If you are generally in good health and take good care of yourself, pregnancy can go very well.
