Thanks all! Yeah we're pretty excited here. At first I felt like a teenager in trouble but got over that pretty fast! The baby is due July 25th. I was hoping for August because August is the best month to be born-- not that I'm biased or anything ;o) I haven't told many people in "real" life yet mostly because my wife and I like the quiet life and find it hard to graciously accept unsolicited advice! Ha! People are just trying to be nice but we just want to focus on our baby and our growing family.

Congrats, Ryan. Best wishes to you and your partner.
 
 
Dx:  UC Proctitis 2006 
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence. 
Started Meds:  Apr 9 08 500mg 5ASA (salofalk) to ease flare, tapering, stopped. 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 Added: tumeric and probiotics.
