Im 20 weeks pregnant. I was warned that i might get better, worse or stayed the same but i can honestly say that i feel 'cured'. My system has completely changed:im eating salad and orange juice with ZERO problems, im going to the toilet once a day and my stools are completely 'normal', not just normal for me but normal for someone without crohn's. I've got no pain, no bloating, mimimal gas, no urges to go, no D. While i should be really enjoying all of this, i feel like my body is teasing me-it's given me a glimmer of how easy and comfortable my life could be and while i can't wait to be a mummy, it's making me want to stay pregnant forever!
I know this is all only temporary but i wondered if anyone experience something similar. I've literally NEVER felt this good, my skin is pink for the first time in 10 years! Did you find your symptoms can back immediately? Were they better or worse than before you got pregnant? Did breastfeeding help delay things?
Does anyone know if there is any drug out there that can recreate pregnancy hormones? Immunosuppressants have never worked for me so im wondering if it's just the hormones that are making me feel so good? Im just confussed as to what's going on. My body IS capable of succesful digestion under certain circumstances whereas before i felt it was just completely broken. Sorry for all the questions.
