Pregnant with Chrons/UC

Fri, August 07, 2020 5:44 PM

Is anyone else on here pregnant with either of these conditions? I am in my third trimester and am experiencing a flare. I contacted by doctor, as well as my obgyn, and we're waiting on a test to come back before we start some sort of treatment (hopefully). Today I had to go in for fluids because I'm having between 4-6 episodes of diarrehea a day. 

The overall pregnancy has been good, but I was hoping this would stay far away. My first pregnancy was so difficult. I'm a bit nervous now for the health of this one. If anyone has any stories to share, that would be wonderful. Oh! And I'm also a teacher getting ready to return to school. A bit nervous about that too!

I'm 26 years old and was diagnosed with Crohn's when I was 16. I've been thru a lot of treatments and very hard times. I am now married and on the road to a better life. My husband and I are now planning for a baby. I'm very nervouse about my Crohn's and pregnancy and what's going to happen. Right now I'm on Remicade treatments and Imuran. I've discussed my options with my doctor and in my case we both agreed it would be best for me to stay on the remicade treatments. It is the only thing that has made my Crohn's go into "remission." I used to be severely iron deficient so my doctor is worried that if I was to have a flare up the results could turn out bad for me and the baby. I was just wondering if anyone else has been thru pregnancy with Crohn's and even while on Remicade? What was pregnancy like with Crohn's? How long did it take to get pregnant? or any advice for Crohn's and pregnancy. Thanks.
