Wow, dietcoke. That is a really shaky way to try a pregnancy.
I flared throughout both my pregnancies and ended up with bleeding, a hemorrhage, obstructions in preg. #2, gestational diabetes with insulin, polyhydramnius, and a mild problem with my heart.
I ended up having an emerg. c-section with my first because my son was doing very poorly at the end; his heart rate was slow.
But, yes, I too had two beautiful healthy children, Thank God!
I wouldn't recommend to anyone who is pregnant and flaring to go without meds. I was on pred. & pentasa & prayer both times and I had a very strict natural diet. Prednisone is proven safe for pregnancy for decades.
But I am glad your child is also healthy and for the hope you've provided.
