Ok, I'm almost 7 months pregnant and on Saturday I had some blood and mucous. Today was a little less but still there. My BMs are normal and no urgency. My question is this, any chance the Tums I took(maybe around 10 in one day) from pregnancy heartburn brought this on? Should I stay away from them? I haven't taken any since because I'm scared to, but it would be nice to at least take a couple a day for heartburn. Oh man..I really hope I can keep this flare under control. I can't imagine delivering in a flare.
I'm really trying not to freak out.
Oh by the way...long time no see to everyone! Haven't been on much as I have been in remission for quite some time and pregnancy..a two year..work..and life have kept me busy!
I'm still on 6 Asacol a day which I take at night. When I saw the blood I upped it to 8 on my own, but will check in with my GI tomorrow to see what she thinks I should do.
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!
