AMK77, that is a very low dose of Prednisone. It may have a mild positive effect on your UC (decreased bleeding or frequency if you're flaring) but likely you won't notice any difference. For UC, we usually take 40 mg. and then taper after two to six weeks.
Pred's effectiveness isn't limited to the first course. Many people take it repeatedly with good results, although the effectiveness eventually decreases for most of us. Your short, low-dose course shouldn't have any effect on it.
Congratulations on your pregnancy, and I hope you manage to stay healthy throughout.
