Hello All,
I know I have not posted in a long time, but I do read your posts almost daily!  I just wanted to let you know that my baby girl arrived safely.  I had to have an emergency c section because Abbies hand was by her hand and she had prolapsed the cord!  But all is well.  She was born last Monday.  I am still sore, but recovering nicely!  She is a blessing!  My crohns is still under control by pentasa.  Go back to see the GI in a few weeks.  Just wanted to let you all know!! I hope you are doing well!

I am 28 years old and have been married for 3 years.  My husband and I are expecting our first child in November!

Nice to hear good news on this forum. Many blessings
I use FD&C Blue dye number 1 and it really seems to help me.  There is SCIENCE behind this.  Just ask me and I will explain it to you.  U/C and Crohn's for 34 years.  Blue dye for one month and I am feeling pretty good!  I am so excited by this but I need others to try it with their doctor's permission.  Simple food coloring!!  BLUE1.  
I can't make money on this, it's already in your kitchen.  I just want to help, especially the youngsters.
I do 2 drops in 6 ounces of water when I get up, 2 or 3 drops in 16 or 20 ounces of water that I sip all day and then 2 drops in 6 ounces of water at bedtime.   Max of 7 drops a day.
