Hello, I have 3 children and I flared really bad with the first and last one. I took Salofalk tablets throughout my whole pregnancy with all three kids. With the first child I used Salofalk enemas nightly while flaring. With my Third child I used Cortifoam up to 3 x a day and I also used most nights the Hycort enemas. I also did the Vitamin E enemas, Just empty capsules in the cortifoam applicator and insert, it helps alot for bleeding and inflamation plus its natural.
I increased my probiotic intake to morning and evenings, that helps alot plus I continued to take MEtamucil daily to bulk things up.
Bread and Flour products were a major problem to me so I cut them out and my flare slowly improved until things were normal again, which was around the 5th month with my last child.
All of my children were healthy.
If you live in Canada you can look up the motherisk website they have a hotline # in which you can call and they will tell you if the medication you are perscribed is safe for your baby or not. They operate out of Sick Childrens Hospital in Toronto and they do tests and studies on most of these medications. They are extremely helpful and I Have called them with every medication that I was put on and all were safe to the baby. Most rectal medications are safe but if unsure look them up plus there are other websites that rate meds with a letter rating.
I hope this helps. Try to relax and exercise as well stress just causes UC to get worse.
