So, I am about 8 weeks pregnant and not on any medication and let me tell you- it sucks! I now go to the bathroom like 20 times a day and I had to go to the ER. They told me all my labs looked fine and I just need to keep drinking and talk to my GI.

Well, when the OB took my labs I am way low on Red Blood Cells, and way high for clotting factors! Probably because I can't even get out of bed!

I am starting Humira as soon as my chest x-ray comes back clean... I really hope it works and works FAST!

I started telling some close friends about the pregnancy and one mentioned there is a silver lining this time- I get a baby when this all works out!

Hope your week was better than mine!
UC (Pancolitis... 90%!) December 2001
Arthritis (2003)
Upper GI Ulcer (2006)
Osteopenia (2008)
Depression/Anxiety (2002)

Meds:Bump up every couple years... You name it, I've used it! Sulfasalizine, Asacol, Rowasas, Pentasa,
Remicade, 6mps... And now it looks like the once daily Lialda taken twice a day isn't enough...
Here comes Humera.

Soon to be mom- hopefully! As long as this flare dosen't take me out...

Congrats on your pregnancy! Maybe you should go on pred to get your trips to the bathroom down. I was mildly flaring early in my pregnancy, went on a short course of pred for a rash and ended up being in remission until delivery (I wasn't on any other meds). Got to love those pregnancy hormones! I hope you find relief soon.
