Oh wow Liza I cannot imagine how horrified you were when the doc suggested abortion to you (((((((HUGS)))))))
The decision is yours in my opinion and at this point you're almost 2 months which means only about
7 months left to go and there is the possibility that at some point during your pregnancy you could go into remission.
What exactly are your symptoms at the present time, how many times/day are you going and are you having mainly D?
Like I mentioned above I was in a flare (always have been) during my second pregnancy I had D about
10-12 times a day with bleeding on occassion and my pregnancy and baby were perfectly healthy and normal, part way through my pregnancy my D became more formed stools, soft but formation was definitely there and the frequency did cut back a little too (maybe about
6-8 times/day) so it can be done and I wasn't on any meds at all because I've either been allergic or non-responsive to them.
I say as others have, get another opinion.
My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
