That is really like the toss of a coin sweetie. I think i was bi-polar in the womb! LOL You can pass it down to your children but at times it can become a learned habit as they grow up, just by watching you. Just keep your eye's and ear's open and good luck! The cool part about you and daddy having it, is that at least you know what to look for! Best wishes to you and your family! -Mary!

Hi hun, such a worry for you.. somebody asked this question a few weeks ago so you could look through the archives. I have asked this question myself and I was told if one parent has bp the chances are 1/4 if 2 parents the chances are 1/2. Like marebear said its not necessarily a genetic issue.
I have 3 children, and I'm proud to say it has made me a better parent, not to say id wish this hell on anyone but it has made me who I am. 1 of my children concerns me sometimes with how his moods can change, but I think he has inherited my personality rather than my illness...
Good luck and don't worry too much!
You will be great x
