In brief: Ask your doctor
I have cared for women who have had children while having severe renal disease.
The key is working very closely with your doctor and paying careful attention to your medical treatment.

Need to know details about your question.
Is dialysis iminent ie have you been told that you will end up on dialysis after pregancy since you have chronic kidney disease ? If this is the scenario, its better to try and get a kidney transplant if possible. If u have an option think about home hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.
