I have spina bifida and can I conceive?

Spina bifida. Spina bifida is a very broad spectrum of disorders. In most cases it does not prevent conception but if you have it you should have a prenatal evaluation to determine the severity of it and whether you might need to medications such as folic acid before conceiving.
Yes. Yes. But there may be other issues that impact your ability to carry a pregnancy to term, or other problems with delivery. I would consult with your ob/gyn. Good luck.

Consult Geneticist. In this case I'd advise that you be referred to a geneticist as well as try and discover if an autopsy was ever done on your 20 week stillborn to find out whether or not it may have also suffered some birth defects especially neural tube which is what the 32 weeker seemed to have.
