Addison's and Pregnancy ???

Hi all,

I'm a young woman with Addisons and am wondering about pregnancy. I would like to get pregnant soon and am wondering if I need to find an OBGYN that deals with Addisons or is any OBGYN capable of dealing with this illness. I've already called like 20 different OBGYN's and so far no doctor has dealt with Addisons and Pregnancy. I've heard that when your delivering, I would have to be on an iv dosage of steroids. Is that true? Has anyone been pregnant with Addisons? How did you find your OBGYN that knew the illness? What special circumstances did you have to deal with?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
