I was dx with Crohn's after having a VERY bad flare during my first pregnancy in 05. In Dec, my husband and I talked with my GI about
all the issues regarding getting pregnant again (ie: going off meds, staying on Remicade, changing doses, ect). I recently found out that I am pregnant-5 weeks. My GI was confident that I had a better chance of getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy and baby by staying on Remicade and not risking a flare. I have had one bowel resection (july 07) and I am feeling fabulous right now. My question(s) are about
any kind of delivery complications after a resection? Is natural childbirth still an option or is a c-section required? I have an appt with my OB/GYN next week so I will definitely ask him then, but I enjoy other personal experiences as well. My OB/GYN is not over joyed about
me staying on Remicade but for me it was the only/right choice. He has agreed to still treat me and stay in contact with my GI.
