we are thinking about baby #2 and i'm trying out different prenatals and so far they are all turning my fairly decent poo into icky mush.

any suggestions?
(i didn't have UC with first pregnancy, so the prenatal i took then isn't working out for me now.)

thanks!

UC (probably pancolitis, but no c-scope yet), diagnosed June 2006, started having major symptoms sometime in January 2006, about 3 months after childbirth. 2nd flare (minor) may 2007 after taking caprylic acid for 2 weeks.
-tried SCD for 4 weeks with no improvement...
-Prednisone 8/28/06-2/28/07. and again may '07, 8 week course.
-Asacol, probiotics, ground psyllium husk, fish oil, CalMag

may you live all the days of your life.

I take Materna. I'm currently 22 weeks. I'm just coming out of a flare after being hospitalized and put on IV steroids, so it's hard to say, but I didn't find the prenatal vitamin did anything weird to my BMs when I wasn't flaring.

i took extra folic acid, 4 mg, and a flintstones, with iron. Alot of OB's will tell you that a flintstones is just as good as anything else, and easier on your tummy. Good luck!

I am taking Natachew. It's a chewable prenatal. I had problems with the first two prenatals the OB gave me because they both contained stool softeners. Natachew does not contain a stool softener... so no problems!
Current Medications:
- Asacol (4 pills, 3x per day)
- Rowasa (1 enema daily, as needed)
- Folic Acid (1 mg, 1x per day)
- Calcium (600 mg, 2x per day)
- Prenatal Vitamin (1x per day)
- Iron (2x per day)
