Reply to "Gathering info before trying to get pregnant"

Aww good for you for taking that step! It can be fun but stressful and everything rolled into one. I’d suggest looking at previous advice on the pregnancy board on the j pouch forum here- I know we’re had some good discussions and advice here.

I got pregnant at 38, about 5 months after my takedown surgery and after a tumultuous 3 years of ulcerative colitis and being on and off prednisone and other drugs. My husband and I had actually prepared for some difficulty getting pregnant bc of all the health issues colitis and the pouch might being, but that didn’t happen. I had no probs at all with the pregnancy and my doc planned the c section. The surgery was cake compared to the j pouch surgery, plus you have this great bundle of joy. we had a colorectal surgeon on call in case they hit some issues with scar tissue, bleeding, etc, but nothing happened at all. Easy peasy.

Best of luck to you!
