No, I didn't stop treatment at all, especially in the 3rd trimester. The difficulty is that if you flare, you are likely to go into early labor. Overall, it's safer to continue Remicade. I have to have c-sections because of my RV fistula, so we time out my infusions throughout the pregnancy so that my delivery is a couple of days before the next infusion so that as much of the Remicade is out of the baby's system as possible. After delivery, we don't go anywhere public for 8 weeks. As for vaccines, the only ones we don't do are live vaccines for like 6 months or something like that. This basically just skips the rotavirus vaccine.
