I posted a while back that I was sick with some CD pains and puking and scared it was CD and not my pregnancy because I'm in the second tri. My labs all came back perfect, so I *should* still be in remission. Unfortunately, still eating my safe diet and having D, nausea, and my first night time "poople accident." Apparently this pregnancy has decided to mimic a CD flare. As long as there's no damage being done to my guts I can deal with it, but it's hard not to worry about CD causing some of these problems.

Hang in there girl! I hope this flare will settle for you soon too. What about some prednisone? Would that help?

Thanks guys. Hanging in. Talking to the ob this week.
Stef-- for now he's not calling it a flare at all. Sticking with the Pentasa, but assuming this pregnancy is just causing cd-like problems. If things change we'll try entocort first then pred. Really want to avoid pred, don't need the mood swings.
I guess this is just proof that each preg is different just like each kid will be. I felt WONDERFUL the full 42 weeks last time. Oh well. It's all worth it.
