Anyone ever been category d meds while pregnant ?

I'm on so many medications while pregnant to my second to avoid having a major flare after giving birth as this happened in my first pregnancy though I'm scared as I don't know of anyone with crohns to tell me if they took meds and baby was fine. So far on gentamicin prednisone and pentasa
Failed on humira and infliximab so in Australia u have a 5 year ban once you fail so can't try them again for a while. My question really is did the baby turn out healthy once born ? I've read the meds I'm on can cause birth defects
Pred and pentasa are pretty safe I believe. Not sure about the antibiotic but many people have had healthy pregnancies on prednisone and 5asa drugs (like pentasa)
