Gathering info before trying to get pregnant

Hi all! I’d love to hear from some j-pouchers who have been pregnant. I have an appointment at a fertility clinic in a few weeks and I want to gather as much info as possible to make a decision whether to pursue pregnancy. Any recommendations for things I should ask?

For context, I’ve had my j-pouch since 2012. I regularly deal with pouchitis and I also have (unconfirmed but suspected) endometriosis. They know there’s a lot of scar tissue in there. I’m 33 and have never been pregnant. I would love to have a bio child but I’m also worried about what it would be like and want to make the best decision for myself, my husband and a possible child. Any advice, resources, or stories of your experience are greatly appreciated. I’m in Ontario, Canada so if you have any provider recommendations I’d love those too. Thank you!!
