This may be a dumb question but I was pregnant with my son when I was diagnosed with UC. Is he at a higher risk for developing this disease because of this? Also, does anyone else worry that their UC symptoms might be masking other health problems? For instance, my back is hurting and I just think it is because I am in a flare but what if it is something else and I do nothing because I think it is just the UC? I must have too much time on my hands that I am thinking too much.
