I was in remission before I got pregnant and was fine until the third month and then starting flaring. I am six months now and have been flaring steadily since. It's not a really bad flare up but a nuisance nonetheless. My family doctor, OBGYN, and Gastro all tell me that I am having a healthy preganancy and the baby is doing just fine. I am hopeful that is the way it will continue and hope everything turns out fine in the end. As for the stats of women flaring during pregnancy, the rule of thumb tends to be a 1/3 stay the same, 1/3 get worse, and a 1/3 actually get better....some of us are just lucky and become that 1/3 that get worse! The important thing to note is making sure you are in remission when actually getting pregnant.
