Sorry I'm so late getting to this....
I'm sorry you are going through this. But I'll be happy to help answer questions and give you support. I have Crohn's Disease, diagnosed in June 2002. I just had my first child in September. My CD is well under control with medications and I had no problems during pregnancy.

To address your post: I have never heard anything to the contrary that Crohn's is an autoimmune disease. Also it's an Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which is different than Irritable Bowel Syndrome. There is actual inflammation in your gut, which is what needs to be treated.

A GREAT resource for people with IBD is a message board called IBD Sucks.
IBD Sucks!™ - Please Log In
I have learned so much there. They are just as supportive as people here!

Good luck moving forward with this. I'll check back into this thread to see if you have any questions.
