Pregnancy after heart surgery?

Hello...  I'm a 38 year old female and just had a quadruple bypass a few months ago.  Heart disease runs in my family as does diabetes and hypertension.  Currently I am in a cardiac rehabilitation program and have been making significant improvements according to blood work results.  I feel that my overall health is much improved with modifications I've made in my diet and exercise.  Prior to knowing I needed to have the heart surgery, my husband and I were planning to start a family (we are "older" newlyweds).  My greatest frustration is this:  now that I have had the CABG, I was advised not to get pregnant.  This truly breaks my heart and I guess I need a second opinion.  Thank you...
