I got married this month, and my husband and I would like to start trying to have a baby early next year. But...I'm very worried about whether or not my eating disorder will affect my ability to get pregnant and whether or not it could affect the baby if I do get pregnant.
I know I'll never forgive myself if my baby is unhealthy because of my eating disorder, but at the same time, I don't know who I am without my eating disorder and I can't imagine completely stopping eating disorder related habits. I feel like that alone makes me a terrible potential mommy and like the fact that I have an eating disorder means I don't necessarily deserve to even have the chance to be a mommy. I know this is negative thinking and that it's wrong, but sometimes these thoughts pop into my head and just won't leave, if that makes any sense.
I want a baby so much...I don't know what to do.
