Hi Ajgambrell,
Welcome back to Healthcare Magic Physician's Desk!
Four children are a sufficient family I think, especially when you are having deranged renal profile.
It is risky to be pregnant in presence of renal failure, there are toxins in the body to which fetus would be exposed, risk of abortion and bleeding are high.
If you still want to get pregnant then you should be in constant follow up of a nephrologist and gynecologist.
Kidney diseases cause anemia due to lack of erythropoetin hormone, ensure that you have more than 10gram of Hb. before getting pregnant, take less salt in diets to avoid fluid overload.
Wish you a great health!

Hi, ovulation means release of egg from the follicle. For conceiving, you just need to know the ovulation time, so that you can try naturally. Once the egg is released, it survives for 24 hrs.
Before planning for conception, consult your nephrologist.
Make sure your kidney functions are normal, as pregnancy tends to worsen the kidney problems. Consult your doctor and get yourself evaluated for fertility. Good luck.
