My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for a little over a year but have had no luck. I asked my doctor if IBS has anything to do with our problems. He said no - it actually would be the best thing that could happen. He said it would make everything better if I have a baby now. My question is, has anyone out there had IBS while pregnant? Did your symptoms go away during pregnancy? I am worried that while I am pregnant I will still get the pains and be afraid to eat - which I know I can't do.I am also afraid that even if the pains go away while I am pregnant will they return full force after I give birth? I am afraid to have a new born baby and be doubled over in pain and not able to take care of myself much less a new baby.
