Hello Beautiful People!
This blog is all about you getting to know me just a little more. Little known fact about me: I have Crohn’s Disease. For those of you that don’t know what that is, it is an inflammation of the digestive tract. I was diagnosed at 11 years old. Living with Crohn’s Disease hasn’t been easy. I have been in constant pain most of my life but I have some good days. The thing is, with Crohn’s disease you just NEVER know. I have to be on a strict diet because certain foods can trigger it, sometimes I follow my diet and it just still gets triggered.
When I was pregnant with my daughter my Crohn’s disease was a living nightmare. Since I have switched care from one health system to another -I feel so much better about going through this pregnancy with Crohn’s disease. I know and work with the providers- so there is that level of trust I have with them.
I have an appointment with Maternal Fetal Medicine doctors. The Maternal Fetal Medicine doctors are also known as MFM . They treat all “high risk” pregnancies, which can include anyone that is pregnant that also have a disease /injection or if anything is wrong with your baby.
This November, I will meet with the MFM specialist and also my GI doctor will also be sitting in the room. Together, they will decide on a course of treatment for this pregnancy. I feel really secure and taken care of. So far everything has been okay with baby, just a little abdominal pain and burning. So, I am encouraged all will continue to go well.
With the care that I get here I just feel safer and I feel like the care for my baby is actually in really great hands. Everyone, always says: each pregnancy is different. I have to say it is crazy seeing the difference between prenatal care with my daughter and now my son.
I hope everyone is having a great week and thank you for taking time out your day to read my post.
