  • i'm so sorry that you are going through that. I wouldnt think it would affect the baby too much unless you had to have a part of your colon removed....

  • I was dignosed with UC when i was pregnant with my last baby. My GI thinks it's because i quit smoking cold turkey when i found out i was pregnant. I have since had my baby (She's 8 mons) and i have only had 1 flare up since her birth.

  • Oh, and it did not affect my pregnancy. But you can get dehydrated and anemic if you are constantly having diarrhea or bloody stools.
