The reason for no meds was that last year at about this time my immune system crashed out and I got desperately ill. Being that I was on Imuran and it is an immune suppressor I thought I should stop it for a while and let my natural immunities build back up.
Stupid??? Probably but..... Worked out in my favour being that I was off of the meds for about 6 months before conception.
I found my Pentasa last night and am back on it. Am waiting for am appointment with my gastro to follow up.
Congrats & Good Luck! I am a bit ahead of you at 29 weeks right now. I have been on Pentasa & Remicade throughout my entire pregnancy and I have not had any Crohn's related issues. If I can keep my preeclampsia in check now that I'm on bedrest everything should be fine.
I just made sure to have a high risk OB follow me closely and followed up with my Gastro every other month.
