Hi..welcome to the forum! I would say that yes, you're flaring based on the fact that you have a diagnosis of UC. There are a few aspects such as hormone fluctuations combined with stress on top of a probably slow simmer of inflammation that has brought you to this point.
It's unfortunate that the doctor didn't suggest you taper the enemas in a fashion to get you to them at least twice a week especially after your baby was born.
I agree you need to have a colonoscopy to have proper biopsies throughout and to make sure there's nothing else going on as well as the exact extent of UC.
Could you possibly be pregnant again?
If you have the enemas, you might consider to start them today anyway.
Keep us posted as to regarding the visit with your GI.
If you can...request oral and the rectal 5ASA (mesalamine) rather than going on pred if he suggests it.
Especially considering it worked so well for you in the past.
*Heather* Status..Asacol (3 x2 daily); flaring /Dec 22, tapered to every 3rd nite..back to nightly (Jan 22)..tapered too fast

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
