Hi all I am posting this for those who dont read my other post that is about my visit with my GI today. 
He knows my husband and I want a family and all other CD meds have stopped working and in order for me to have CD controlled I must do 1 shot each week.  Initially he mentioned when we get the okay from him (after anotehr scope in 6 months) that he would keep me on humira for the 1st 2 trimesters since it does cross the placenta. 
He informed me today he now knows when the time comes he will keep me on it for the whole pregancy and we will discuss it more when the time comes closer.  HUmira has been given a category B class for pregnancy just thought some people may be interested in that
Dx with Crohn's 1987, symptoms as early as 1984.
Temp iliostomy February 2007, reversed June 2007, Ovarian cysts, migraines, allergies (incl food allergies) , oral allergy syndrome (diff than true food allergies), Asthma, Gall Bladder removed 1999, Inguenal hernia 1987
