From everything my dr.'s told me when I found out I was pregnant, 1/3 of women get better, 1/3 women stay the same, 1/3 women worsen. I was in remission since I was diagnosed in 12/06. I conceived in 12/07 and the flare began 4/08. So I went a good 4 mos. with no symptoms, in fact my normally crazy stomach was feeling incredible. Unfortunately, I had some anxiety issues and skipped my colazol a few times (well more than a few) and wound right back up where I started in 11/06. My doc had put me on canasa at first. 1000mg suppository at night to control the flare but I was on that for 16 days with little relief (plus I've developed a hemi which made the constant D and blood even worse and more painful to deal with). When I went back to the dr. with no relief he put me on cortifoam 2 x a day and entocort 3 pills a day for two weeks and then taper...This is my first experience with steroids and I have only been on them for a day and a half, but already I'm feeling some relief. I was hesitant to go on them because of side effects and so on to my baby and myself, but after weighing the risks of the medicine and the risk of the continued flare, the medicine is the right choice for me. I'm already feeling better (a little, I'm trying to be optimistic). I'm keeping a journal now and writing down every single thing I can remember for when this flare began b/c to me it seemed like it came on overnight and i was in urgently in the bathroom 10 x a day, but looking back there were things that should have tipped me off and now that I am aware of that, I know for next time (we want to have another child someday, this is our first) what to look for and I'll go on meds right away. As long as you don't flare having a baby is just as normal as someone who doesn't have uc. And for that lady who's dr. said she was selfish for wanting to have a child, you're doctor is an idiot and i think having a child is the most unselfish thing a person can do. Have your baby you'll be grea! Even if you do flare, hopefully you can get it under control! Good luck! Thanks to everyone for your posts and answers. I love this website, it's been so helpful this last month.
