Congrats I had a baby 18 months ago and was fine the entire pregnancy. Afterwards I developed a r-v fistula, and also numerous vulvar inflammations that I believe are what is referred to as metastatic crohn's disease. Whether or not it had anything to do with pregnancy and birthing a child, I don't know what to think about that.
I did read in numerous places that people with IBD tend to have smaller babies. My little girl was 20 inches and 5pounds, 14 ounces. She was long, but very skinny, so for me, that was definitely true. She has since shot up to the 80th percentile in weight and 75th for height, so she didn't stay tiny!
Hmmm.. I had not heard of the smaller babies theory. My daughter was 5 pounds 14 ounces too! And my son (pre-diagnosis and symptoms) was 7lbs 15 oz. I had low amniotic fluid with her, so no idea if the sulfa meds caused that or if that contributed to her lower weight.
I also have a r-v fistula, but it wasn't due to the birth. It developed between children.
Congrats again, good luck with your ultrasound tomorrow!

I have read somewhere that it is preferred to do a c-section on people with Crohns then a natural birth as the stress and strain on the body can cause issues? Not sure if this is true or not.

Of course I told you all first! You are my Crohnie family. And safe, I know that word won't get out before i'm ready.

So, it appears i'm about 5 weeks, so pretty early....here I was worried I was closer to ten, shows how much I pay attn. to periods! Anyways, looks like according to that I'll be due early December, but i'll let the docs calculate that for me. :P LOL. Lines up pretty well with symptoms and such though. I have a small uterine bleed, but she said that's pretty normal, and I haven't had any spotting so i'm not too worried.

I've been feeling pretty good actually, the crohns seems to be more or less in check! Although I don't know if this weird tummy feeling is from the Crohns or the Pregnancy...LOL. It just feels really unsettled, if that makes sense. Not nauseous or anything, just unsettled. Hopefully things stay that way! I will continue to update, thanks again everyone for all the support and stories.

Pen, that was both of my grandfathers' birthday! My mom's dad was born on a Thanksgiving and weighed 11 lbs 12 oz. He joked that he was the turkey.

Funny thing is, he was only like 5'5 and I'm pretty sure he never weighed over 150 lbs in his life.

If you have had fistulas they do not recommend vaginal birth. You can develop a anal-vaginal fistula if you tear during birth. You are also at higher risk for anal incontinance if you deliver vaginally. I had a c-section with my DD because I have a history of fistulas.

I will guess 6 lb 5 oz. Thats how big my baby was. lol.
