jax81, I'm curious how you are doing now? I am now 20 weeks pregnant but still flaring :( My worst symptom is and always has been bleeding. I feel like it's just been getting worse and Im starting to really worry about
what complications this could cause during/after labour.
I logged on here to find the exact same information. I am 8 weeks pregnant and am having a mild (hopefully) crohn's flare for the first time after a bowel resection 4 years ago. I currently have an inflamed skin condition called erythema nodosum. it is hideous. I also live overseas in a developing country ( I can find decent medical care but it adds to the stress) This is where my partner is from and our life is here. And it is awesome. I will go home to have my baby, now probaly earlier which will be a finanial disaster). Crohn's has killed all enjoyment of being pregnant. I went from super excited to feeling sorry for my self and having no idea what to do. I am on pred and going to taper off it quickly. I have a massive supply of salofalk and I will find out tomorrow if I can take it. I don't think it does much for me anyway, so probably not worth the risk. Anyway not much encouragement but just wanted to say congratulations and I can commiserate. I am also a teacher and get no down time- althoguh I am off this week which is a relief. It is draining thinking about this. It will all work out in the end x
