I know that ibs isn't an autoimmune disease, but it's still quite distressing :/...just wondering if anyone on here has suffered with this during pregnancy, by any chance? Thanks

Hello IRUNPUNK and

IBS/IBD is in the autoimmune family... I didn't have it during pregnancy, but after and was diagnosed with that and UC 6 almost 7 years ago.

I'm really sorry you're having to go thru that during pregnancy... has your doctor been able to help you with any certain dietary changes, medications or resin powders?

How are you handling, managing it during your pregnancy?

Again thank you for joining and WELCOME!!! Let me know if there's anything I can do for you or don't hesitate to PM if ever you need to

Celena

Hi Celena,

Thanks for the warm welcome . Thankfully, my IBS just flares up when I eat something "bad" (for me at least ). I'm having a hard time taking some supplements, though, this seems to be the toughest thing since doctors like us to take so many different vitamins/supplements during pregnancy. I haven't talked about it to my doc yet, but I have an appointment this week and hope to get a few answers on what other options there are.

Thanks again for welcoming me .

Absolutely, I'm glad you're here!

Definitely agree that the plethora of vitamins / supplements don't always agree with our stomachs.

I've been taking this digestive /probiotics supplement that helps digestion and reduces the flares, but still get them.

Edgar Cayce products have one called "Duo Gest" that might be ok for pregnancy, but could ask your OB about it. WM has one as well which is what I take, but off the top of my head I cannot remember what it is called. I'll post it to you later.

Thanks for the recommendations. I've tried a couple of probiotics without much luck, but it's nice to hear about some helpful ones. Where do you buy yours?
