Slowly Going Crazy….

Ugh, that’s how I feel. I hate to whine about this, but when I started this blog, I had decided that I would keep track of how often my flare-ups reoccur. Well this is a dandy. This flare is actually worse than the one I had when I initially found out I was pregnant this time.

Yesterday I thought I was having a “good” day. We took the kids out for supper, then out to the movies. I only got some bland soup thinking that won’t play with my insides too much. We went to the movies and I was a good girl, didn’t have any popcorn, pop or anything as the kids watched their movie. We saw curious george, it was pretty cute, I wanted to take that little monkey home with me. 🙂 Anyway, that was a struggle to sit through as I could feel my feet ballooning up and getting itchy, but those are normal joys of pregnancy.

When we got home I watched American Idol to see who got kicked off. Then fell asleep before CSI had a chance to come on. Then, 1am, it hit! Trip 1 to the can, then trip 10 happened around 7am. Then again, blah blah blah, you get the picture. I’m at the point now where I can’t even eat. I just have to sit really still. So I called my OB, he said to increase the prednisone only to 20mg for a few days then taper off to 10mg. The problem is I highly doubt this is going to do the trick. Anyway, here I am, praying for a miracle that 20mg will keep my insides happy. I got my ultrasound scheduled for the 15th. So we’ll see how little one is holding up amongst her mothers agony. UGH!

    Hi there – funny how I ended up on here and have so much in common with you. I am also in Canada and I am also pregnant – 33 weeks and growing daily AND I also have Crohn’s Disease and have for almost 10 years now. If you have some time – give me a shout on msn or by email

    Take care of yourself and wishing you better health in the near future.
