I have a question. I am 21 weeks pregnant with my first
. I am currently on Humira every 2 weeks. I have been feeling pretty good but there is quite a bit of blood in BM's. The Crohn's has always caused me to be amenic and in a recent blood test my hemoglobin was down to 82
My OB is concerned and has upped the iron supplement I am on. I have an appointment with my GI next week and am pretty sure he is going to suggest that I go on some prednisone to get the blood under control so hopefully my hemoglobin will come up a bit. Have any of you ladies been on prednisone while pregnant? I am just looking for some reassurance that healthy babies can be born to moms on Prednisone. Also, have any of you experienced the problems with anemia while pregnant and if so, how did you manage to get your levels up? I am also worried that if my levels don't come up enough my OB and GI will want to do another iron infusion or blood transfusion and I am not sure if this is something I want to do while pregnant.
Any insight is greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much!
