In brief: Yes

I've had many patients who have this condition and go on to have successful normal pregnancies.
A consultation with a perinatologist would help you understand what possible complications there may be.

Yes, and it wouldn't hurt to let your hematologist know around the time you deliver so he/she is standing by.

ITP is relatively common. The main of course is having your platelets drop during the pregnancy. This can be a major issue during c section or if you have a placenta previa. However, we see ITP in pregnancy a lot. I would say its probably fine, however only you can determine ultimately if the risk to you is worth being pregnant. The same goes for diabetics, women with cardiac disease, etc.
