I'm Back at Last!

Hi all. |
Finally got my laptop fixed so can get back online now! Been needing fixed since February, so I've kinda been out of the loop of whats happening with everyone.
There's been a couple of things happened since I was last on. I've finished 2 college courses for counselling and mental health. I'd really love to become a counsellor myself for people with IBD. Seems there's none available here who specialise. I went on holiday to Egypt in January for the first time after getting my stoma. It was a great holiday apart from worrying about the toilet all the time and having leaks nearly every day, plus the fact that the troubles there started a few days after I got there. And no, I didn't start it, lol. Also, and this is a biggie, I'm having a baby!
It's amazing how things change with research into meds. I was told that I couldn't get pregnant when I first started humira about 2 years ago as it would be dangerous for the baby, but now its been shown to be safe to use in the first 20 weeks. I'm now 25 weeks and everything is going really, really well. Been given 9.10.11 as the due date, freaky eh, lol, but they might induce me early depending on how the baby grows and my crohn's, which has been behaving since I re-started humira and got the stoma(Spewy).....had it over a year now
I'm so sorry to see that some of you have been having such a bad time lately. Gemz, my heart goes out to you especially. You've been through so much, and I feel terrible that things haven't been the way you hoped.
I've missed everyone and didn't realise how much I depend on the net to keep in touch with people!
I'll keep you updated on how things go!
Hugs, Shona x
