Haven't been on for awhile been so worried about my pregnancy and Crohn's really been sending myself nuts.
Saturday before last my morning sickness was easing off then when I went to the bathroom I noticed I'd spotted some blood so I peaked.
Back to the hospital again 2nd time in a week 1st time they told me my morning sickness which isn't always in the morning was my crohn's playing up so I left when they started talking nasal gastic tubes.
But I knew I had to see a doc for the spotting to many miscarrages to mess around thankfully my bub was fine but they couldn't see where the
bleeding was coming from, hubby was convinced it was my bowels again as I was still getting that too even though I hadn't had D's for a few days.
They told us my cervix had opened slightly from the outside and I was to go home and to bed not do anything, with some blood stained muck I was back at the hospital on the Monday my Ob said she could see I was bleeding from behind the placenta I was gutted but bub was still ok so back to bed.
Scan on monday showed 11weeks 6 days pregnant bleeding stopped cervix closing what a releif on B12 shots weekly and extra iron as both really low but my other bloods have one er doc thinking this bub might have me looking at remission wow.
So I spoke to my gp and ob about Not going ahead with my hemi-colectomy in July I really just dont want anything happening to this bub I'll be 18 weeks nearly half way there and I've made it this far with no drugs, the B12 and extra iron seem to be binding me up so no D's have even tried some foods that would normally have me running with no ill effects. Although I'm scared to strain when using the bathroom as I'm sure this contributed to the spotting. All seems fine but morning sickness is back but I feel ok

What a challenge it must be... to be pregnant and have your Crohn's acting up at the same time. You and the baby keep hanging in there... :)...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
