Not yet, but hoping for it.

The plan is to continue on Imuran until about month 8 of pregnancy, then stop. The effects of the Imuran should hopefully continue for a few months after that, and stopping will allow me to breast-feed.

Spent a whole year wondering why no drugs worked for me, only to find out it was probably c-diff (which didn't show up with the regular tests) the entire time. Now I'm retrying all the meds and finding success!

When I got pregnant I was on Imuran.   I stopped a bit in, personal choice, but really the doctors all reassured me it was safe to be on for pregnancy and such.  My little guy is 16 months now and perfectly happy and healthy.
Even breast feeding is a bit split, some say good, some say no...but still, talk to your doctors and find out what they personally think.  Alot of women here have been on practically all the meds it seems and had happy healthy babies.
Remember best is always to stay on some sort of med and take care of yourself first and foremost cause an unhealthy flaring up mom is worse then any med that keeps up healthy and controlled basically.

The only med I have heard to avoid in pregnancy is Methotrexate. As Lady said above we have had multiple pregancies on this very forum while on meds such as Imuran/6mp, Humira and Remicade. All had healthy happy babies. Good luck and keep us posted on if you are or not. Hugs!
