Hi! I'm new to this forum and I am ecstatic to have found this thread! It is exactly what I have been looking for. I have been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease for 2 years now. Other than my initial diagnosis, I have only had one flare up where I was hospitalized. My CD has been fairly manageable for the most part. 4 days ago I was experiencing some cramping in my abdomin and decided to go to the ER. Luckily I went because that's when they discovered that I'm pregnant. I am so happy about this wonderful news but also very scared. Since finding out I am pregnant I visited my GI. He told me I need to stay on my CD mediciation, Azathioprine, because if I don't I risk having a flare up and can lose the baby. But the ER doctor and my general physician tell me not to take it because it passes through the fetal cord and can result in fetal fetality or birth defects. Both options are scary I don't know what to do and I would really like some insight on others experiences. Thanks for taking the time to read this! God bless!
