Please go to infantrisk.org. There is a ton of information about pregnancy and breastfeeding there, more than your GI and your OB/Gyn know, I promise. The website is a result of many years of research done by Dr. Hale, who is widely respected as a world authority on medications and mother's milk.
And yes, Asacol is absolutely ok during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The only issue with breastfeeding is that baby might develop diarrhea. When you are breastfeeding your baby 9 months from now, I promise you will not know the difference between normal poop and diarrhea and it will probably freak you out, LOL, but it will all be ok. Stay healthy, and feel well and congrats!
