Pregnancy & Methotrexate

I'm on horrible methortrexate & humria for Crohns and have just discovered I'm pregnant. I remember when I was first presecribed Meth that my specialist said that under no circumstances should I get pregnant. THhis certainly wasn't planned and I'd love another baby...I just wondered whether anyone has any experience of this?

I don't have any experience w/ methotrexate, but this article does have a lot of information in it.

To reiterate what littlemissh said, see you doc ASAP.
