Hi, i am so happy!!! just 5 weeks to give birth. everthing is fine, i had my scan on wednesday, baby is fine and happy. My crohn's is in total remission, no signs of the disease. This weekend a will write my birth plan, i have decided i want more natural as possible, no drugs, unless the pain is unberable. I have also decide to nurse my baby, but i will stay in azathioprine, i saw a few doctors to take this decision. I will keep post to let you know guys how i am doing.

Currently on azathioprine 100mg, fish oil and pregnancare.

Congrats. Glad all is well. Enjoy those last few weeks. It's so nice to still feel the baby's movement.
Hoping to stay in remission after the birth of a healthy baby girl. On Pentasa during my pregnancy, went med-free 2 months to nurse (stupid), but back on Pentasa and still nursing.
