Thanks for all of your responses. I really appreciate it. I would try the rectal meds but for some reason I'm thinking I read that they are not effective in people with pancolitis. I'm also wondering why my GI doctor wouldn't have brought it up 1st over Prednisone. Do they usually prescribe it or do you get it somewhere else? I'm leaning toward waiting since the blood is not every time and I'm really running out of time since the doctor said I could go any day now. I am concerned about the side effects such as insomnia and hormonal changes since I don't need those combined with having a baby and those hormonal changes and not sleeping, etc. However if I end up in a terrible flare it won't be good either so I'm just too confused.
