Hello! My husband and I recently started talking about trying to have another baby. We have tried 3 times before I got sick with UC (all 3 ended in miscarriage). The last time I had to have a D&C and the type of antibiotics I was on for so long actually started my UC (I will never take clindamycin ever again lol).
As you can probably guess, I'm really nervous about it. My OB wanted me to lose weight the last time I miscarried before trying again, I weighed 220 at that time. Now I'm down to 125, mostly due to being sick. Over the past 6 months I seem to have gotten my UC under control with major help from my Primary Care Physcian. He is amazing! He put me on Lialda at my request, and then has me on the rest of the things in my signature. Also suggested I go Gluten Free 4 months ago and it's helping amazingly :)
My main thing is I'm just wondering what I would be facing with a pregnancy and having UC? I heard it's best to get pregnant while in remission (which I seem to be). Would it still be ok to take the Lialda for the duration of a pregnancy? I really don't want to stop taking it. I have an appointment to see my PCP here soon, but I wanted to post this as well. He is great and all, but I still like hearing from people who actually know what I go through, or have been through the same thing. Any input is greatly appreciated and thanks!!
