Smell aversions and Crohn's Disease

Ok...

I'm starting to think what I am currently experiencing is not a flare afterall.

Has anyone else ever gotten "smell" aversions with Crohns? Just the smell of something really sets me off and sends me to the restroom gagging. Add that with constant nausea unless I'm snacking on saltines or drinking lemonaid or OJ...

Been so tired I fell asleep twice at work and passing out at home at 8pm.

The thought of chicken makes me want to puke. The worst right now though is smells...and I've had some mild "PMS" style cramping off and on for the last 2 weeks. Last weekend I was so sure I was getting a visit from AF but didnt...

Ladies...do you sense where I'm going with this?

Could it be that? Or is this just a nasty, nasty flare?

I hate to suggest this, cuz I don't really know you that well, but that completely sounds like pregnancy to me. Any chance?

Yah there is a very good chance. Well except for the fact for the past 30 years I've never gotten preggo. I bought a couple tests tonight but I felt kinda silly doing it. I'm sure this is just going to be some freakish Crohns episode.

Nice to know I feel like I"m going insane.

Go test for my benefit! I'm dying to know.

And for what it's worth, smells bothered me BIG time during my pregnancies. ;0)

Tinkee. HAha - was that a slip-type, or did you mean it?? It's cute!
Yeah - I was WAY WAY OVER sensitive to smells when I was preggo.

DO YOUR BOOBS HURT?????
That is a GOOD sign of being pregnant, even before the test it can happen!

This is SO true. I had boob surgery, got pregnant two months later and I knew I was pregnant because the morning I put my bra on, well, I basically wanted to die, LOL. They were ultra-sensitive suddenly after losing feeling in them. I glanced at the calender, did some counting and knew right then and there.

Well maybe it is freak-a-zoid flare symptoms then since my boobers aren't too sore?

You know Mark ... you're starting to worry me. There has been a lot of talk today about you having a baby. Is there something you need to share with the class?

Hey guys- took a turn for the worse last night. I'm about to drive myself to yee ol'ER. As much as I cannot afford the co-pay right now, something isn't right.


I had flare pains last night that started at about 3am and they haven't stopped since. I'm going in now rather than later to get some meds so I don't have to suffer this entire weekend.

I was in so much pain last night and on the toilet constantly. So you can imagine I did not feel like doing the HPT this morning. I'll just get the hospital to check.

But yah I just had a double Remicade dose April 22nd so believe me I am not happy about this.


Hopefully back sometime today...Kittee

Well guys- turns out I'm most likely flaring and...7 weeks preggo.

I have no idea how this happened. I swear I had a visit from aunt flo in april. So they sent me home, told me to rest until Tuesday when I can call my GI doc. The ER doc's wouldn't send me home with any meds. ><

So I bought some Ensure and some soup. Looks like I'm liquid dieting this weekend. lol.

The worst part of it all though is having to wait until Monday evening to tell my hubbers the news.

Thanks for being so supportive.

Yah!!! Congrats Kittee. I know I don't know you at all, but I'm still very excited for you. I was 8 weeks along before I found out I was pregnant, and I had a period in the first month as well. I was told it's actually more common than people realize. <shrug> Yah... congrats again!

Well you see, when two people love each other they take off all their clothes and hug for 1-2 minutes and then the man shakes violently for about 5-10 seconds and the a baby happens 9 months later. I haven't quite figured out the process this is just what i have been told

It only takes 1-2 minutes?

Congratulations! And you thought my little online test was a crock? Pfft!

If you're 7 weeks pregnant (and have a regular cycle) that means you're technically only 5 weeks pregnant (since they count pregnancy from the first day of your last period), so that's why you had your menstrual in April!

*Edit* Doh, we're still in May, LOL. You probably just experienced breakthough bleeding then.
