Get back on your meds. It's a lot more dangerous to flare than it is it be on mesalamine-based meds during pregnancy. I took Apriso and mesalamine enemas the entire time I was pregnant with my second (UC developed after my first was born), and she was born at 39 weeks, 6 days, weighing in at 7 lbs 13 oz. She's now two and is still just fine (perfect, really)! ;)
Yes, mesalamine is a class B drug, but all class B really means is that not enough studies have been done to show they're for sure safe. And, when you think about
the number of pregnant women who have UC and are taking mesalamine, this makes sense. However, the studies that have been done all indicate the fetus is not harmed. There's at least one great article that talks about
IBD meds in pregnancy in the resource thread (sticky thread at the top of the page).
I encourage you to read it and get back on Lialda stat.
