View Full Version : Another baby on the way

Just found out this week that I'm pregnant. As soon as I found out, I stopped the Elmiron. So far no IC symptoms. It is scary - this is completely a surprise for me and my husband. Ellen, our daughter, will be 3 when the little one arrives. I think she'll be excited, since she has been requesting a baby that cries for some time. She'll get more than she bargained for.
Well wishes to all. Anyone had any experience with Elmiron during pregnancy? A little concerned about taking it during the first week when I didn't know I was pregnant.
That is such great news. I don't know anything about the Elmiron and pregnancy issue. I am sure someone else will chime in on this.

Congrats!!!!! I am 15 weeks and still on my Elmiron (Dr said it is ok) So far my IC has been so out of control with this pregnancy that I don't think the it would really matter if I was on or off of it. Good Luck to you Keep us posted. Oh my youngest will be 8 when this new one comes and she is not to happy LOL guess she will have some adjusting to do.

baby Congratulations! baby
Thanks for sharing your great news with us!
As for Elmiron and pregnancy, when I asked my urologist about that, he said that there have not been any long-term studies done on the effects of Elmiron and pregnancy due to the obvious ethical issues, and it is a relatively new medication. Personally I wouldn't take Elmiron if I were pregnant, but I would discuss your questions and concerns with your doctor.

Thanks to everything for the wishes and the support. I am still reeling from the news, just an emotional time, not knowing whether I will be able to handle another one. Deep down, I feel that it is meant to be, just happened a year sooner than I would have liked. So far the IC remains in remission. Just hope it remains that way. For now, it's one day at a time, and lots of water.
Hugs to all,
