Hi all,I'm new to the group, though I've been following the posts for a short while. I'm glad that a finally found a community of people who share my woes and most of call, can understand what Im going throughI've had IBS-D for more years than I care to remember. I believe it started when I was still in my teens, and has been getting steadily worse since. I've been officially diagnosed with IBS a couple of years ago when my family doctor advised that I visit a gastro doc and I finally scrounged up the courage to go and hear the worst.I've tried lots of stuff - Colonix, Colpermin, various food combinations. Some helped a little, for a short while. Most did nothing. I've discovered that I can't eat almost any veggies or fruits, or milk products, or spices. Right now Im down to rice, bread (that I bake at home in a bread machine) and yellow cheese. I know it can't be healthy, but until I get the latest flare-up under control I have no choice.And here is my question. How can IBS-D be handled during pregnancy (and especially attempts to get pregnant, when I can't know for sure when I'm there)? My husband and I would like to start trying for a baby, but I'm very nervous about it. There are lots of pills that help pass the day, but I can assume most of them are forbidden. And what about the cramps, the inability to eat healthy food, etc? Can anyone please give me some sound advice? Thanks.
