I was diagnosed with it 11 years ago!!! Sever one now. I have it also in my lungs!!!!!!
I have two healthy boys 3yrs old , and 4 mns old.
During my first pregnancy, Crhon's was more active, I carried to term and had a great easy vaginal delivery. After I had the baby, Crohn's did go into remrtion for 2 long years.
My second pregnancy, was easier, Croh's was not active. After an easier delivery than the first one, my Crohn's was more active.
Dr. told me, 1/3 women get worse, 1/3 better, 1/3 no difference
Hope this help, good luck

hi, I had 2 babys before being diagnosed and have had 2 babys since being diagnosed, with all 4 pregnancys it has been the exact same, so i have had no trouble with crohns at all during, but after my last I did have a few days of stomach pain and a bit of diarreah (diarrhea). both my babys born when i had crohns were well, but with my lasti had to have 4 weekly scans due to being on azathioaprine, they thought she may be small, and she was compared to my others but not small where there were problems. good luck

Thanks for responding, Ive had some pain in my small intestines where its at but thats about all Ive had for a while, I dont take any medicine for crohns I found that it made me go to the bathroom worse so I stopped, and it seems that things are clear for now and also being pregnant has made me constipated so I guess its kinda evened out .

Talk to your doctor about taking a stool softener like Colace. When I was pregnant my gastro told me to take 1 a day, my OB confirmed it was ok (so check with them too). I don't know if it did the trick or if I was just lucky but I wasn't constipated at all during my pregnancy.

Congratulations.

My midwife told me today to take colace, I think I would feel better if I could go to the bathroom on a regular basis...Everytime I eat I feel like **** and I dont even eat that much Im just full of ****...I guess
