Thanks once again
I will keep you all posted on my progress. I will be going for my infusion Friday morning...I will be thinking about all the great experiences everyone has had the entire time I have to sit there.
I am so glad I joined this forum, it has really given me a piece of mind and has provided me with the encouragement I need during this time..

Well I did it Stef 17!!!!!! I went for my infusion this past Friday. I was a nervous wreck the entire time but tried hard to relax and think about all the positive feedback I have received from everyone.
So far I feel great I am just over 8 weeks now, so I hope everything remains well and that I will be ok.
I will keep you posted. My next infusion is not until the end of March.
I continued with Remicade in February as I began to feel sick. We (hubby and I) decided a sick mother creates a sick baby. Later in February at the 22 week ultrasound, the maternal/fetal dr. observed the VSD hole was becoming smaller and he thinks the hole will continue to close and cause no future complications. I remain positive and have continued remicade. I am looking forward to the birth of the baby in July.
I gave copies of the aforemention research articles to the GI and discussed my concerns with him. My GI and I did explore other treatments if I felt totally uncomfortable with continuing Remicade.
Below are links to research articles that discuss placental and breast milk transfer of remicade.
