I guess i had been in remission for about
2 1/2 years before i got pregnant. i went to see a specialist that has been working with crohn's patients for 30 years before getting pregnant and he assured me that it was safe. it is better to get remicade while in remision while pregnant than to have a flare during your pregnancy - in that case, it would be hard to treat you. i was aprehensive about
it...but had a wonderful pregnancy with ZERO problems and now have a very healthy baby. let me know if you have any other question!
