Christiny, I am so sorry to hear of your situation. I am always drinking Ensure because it has several vitamins and minerals that your body needs, and when I'm flaring I just don't absorb everything I need from food. Certainly talk to a doctor, but I wouldn't worry about starving the baby by going on a liquid diet - as long as you are very careful to choose the things that will provide adequate nutrition. Even if you were drinking the Ensure, you'd still need to include more than that to your diet. I tried to find a product similar to Ensure or Boost that is sold in Australia, but couldn't find anything...although I'm sure it exists there! They sell Ensure and Boost at most grocery stores here in the US, they are a nutritional supplement drink (and they are quite tasty too).
The other thing you could do is search online for good smoothie recipes. During a flare, I do try to avoid fruits because of the sugar content (encourages D), but you can do a good smoothie with the fruits you like, but include things like tofu (for protein) and flax seed oil (which helps the inflammation) and even add fish oil. Smoothies are a great way to pack in all those essential nutrients your body needs and they would be easy on your digestive system.
I hope that you are able to speak with your doc soon and they can give you some reassurance. Remember to REST and RELAX as much as possible. Right now there are several things happening to you all at once, and it is likely that this is not helping your Crohn's! So, as much as possible, try to trust that things will be okay. ((((hugs))))
My prayers are with you, your hubby, and your sweet little bump,
30 year old wifey and mom to 3 little girls, 2 dogs, and 2 ratties and working full-time outside of the home...nap anyone?
Suffered with symptoms for 12 years, dx Crohn's-Colitis 11/2007. Taking Asacol, Omeprazol,
Rowasa, Bentyl. Flaring off and on and trying to avoid steriods. Visited a naturopath (aka angel), got a vitamin B injection and have started taking NF Formula's "RF Plus" with every meal. Seems to be helping.
