 I just made it through my pregnancy with no flare ups.  I had a baby girl on Nov 5th.  With some their disease gets better during pregnancy.  I was in remission before I got pregnant though and not on any UC meds.  Good luck!

CONGRATS!!! I'll be trying next month, so hopefully I will be joining you shortly. Here is to a H&H and FLARE FREE 9 months!
Diagnosed: 
Officially Diagnosed with UC in June 2003.  Have had stomach issues since 1989.  Unknown if they are related or not.  Have mild/moderate UC.  Have had 4 flares, the last one caused by hormones from stopping breastfeeding.  Currently back in remission!  Only taking 6 Asacol a day.   Will take Rowasa enemas as needed. Colozal did not work for me.  Luckily my UC is relatively minor and responds well to meds, but man do those flares hurt!
