Hi all, I was wondering how anyone who had a resection did when they got pregnant. How was the pregnancy? Did you have to get a C-Section? Etc. How did you wait until you got pregnant after the resection?
I have 4 children - youngest is 14 months - I would like to have another child in the future but concerned about it. Please share your stories

I am also interested in what others have experienced. I had my first resection in July of this year and am trying to get pregnant right now. I was/am worried about my resection scar/incision site because it is still super sensitive. If I do too much in a day or stretch the wrong way it hurts ALOT so I am wondering if there will be pain from a growing belly. LOL! My GI says it is fine to start trying now, but I always like to hear what personal experiences others have had.

I had my second ressection 3 yrs ago and got pregnant about 6 mths ago-had no problems with growing belly or getting pregnant, although I was 2 and 1/2 years out of surgery. Did have a miscarriage at 12 wks, but was not thought to be due to Crohns.

I had a resection in June '06 and am currently 22 weeks pregnant.  Everything is fine so far.  I delivered by 2.5 year old via c-section on the advice of my GI due to extensive problems in my rectal area, and this one will be delivered via c/s as well. 

I was a little concerned about my scar since I developed a keloid but it's stretched out just fine and doesn't hurt.
