I am a 23 year-old female that has been on Remicade Infusion since September 2007. I became pregnant in November 2007 and continued my infusions throughout my entire pregnancy up until now. I had no complications during my pregnancy. It actually pushed my Crohn's to the back burner. I had no stomach pain, no bloody stool, etc. My son was born 8/2/2008 weighing in at 8lbs. 1.1oz and was 20.5" long. He was and still is a healthy, growing baby boy.
Throughout my pregnancy, I was sick everyday. I threw up 5-7 times a day. I only gained 18 pounds while being pregnant. Now if that was a side effect or not of receiving infusion, I have no idea. Many women I have spoken to were sick throughout their pregnancy. (Women not on Remicade. Like aunts, and my Mom's friends).
There are no studies, unfortuantely, on Remicade and Pregnancy. You would think they would log this stuff and compile studies, but no. Why do that? While I looked for all the information, I could possibly find on the topic, women who stopped their infusions during pregnancy, were 75% more likely to have surgery immediately after giving birth. It was more detrimental to stop the infusions then to continue them. Unfortuantely, Remicade is to new of a medication to record it's effects. Only time will tell with both me and my Son, but so far, so good. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask. I am more than happy to help and ease any fears someone may have.
