This is my second pregnancy, but first with UC, and I'm having trouble knowing when/how to take my Asacol because I'm so nauseated all the time.  Any advice from those who've BTDT.  I'd like to avoid a flare-up on top of everything else ...
Diagnosed with UC in transverse and descending colon in Feb. 2007
Doing well so far on Asacol 800 mg. 2x a day
Also take 25 mg. Paxil, 100 mg. Wellbutrin, 1 probiotic pearl per day

Is there any food you can eat that doesn't nauseate you? Such as crackers or toast? You can try taking smaller doses of your Asacol thru out the day just as long as you're taking the prescribed amount then maybe you might be able to keep it down easier.

Agh, I remember the morning sickness oh so well and it's been 12 years! I didn't get that when I was pregnant with my first (I didn't have UC with my son) but I had Uc when I was pregnant with my daughter. Luckily the morning sickness subsided after the 1st trimester.
Left sided Uc -'92 - Colazal, Canasa, 6mp, Prilosec, Biotin, Forvia, Pro-Bio 
Allergies - Singulair, Astelin(got the script - just haven't tried it yet!)
Secondary Reynauds Syndrome - '04 - Norvasc
Fibromyalgia - '06

I found with my pregnancy that I was so sick all the time that I couldn't keep any thing down including my meds.( I lost 15 pounds in my first trimester.) In my case I actually found that my UC went into remission during my pregnancy and has been mostly not a problem since. I remember panicking that I wouldn't be able to take my meds and wondering what would happen. I would talk to your doc and see what they say. I found that if I took a can of pop and cooked it down to a syrup on the stove that sometimes a little of that would help me be able to eat. Also, I hate beer but, the nonalcoholic kind (taken in small sips) also helped. Hope you are able to find relief
