In brief: Usually mild

Survey done by interstitial cystitis association found that ic symptoms increased slightly for women with mild or moderately severe ic.
Symptoms improved for women with severe ic until 3rd semester. Inportant for all your dr.S to communicate and work together or better still consult with a perinatologist. Suppliments like folate (folic acid) and vit.B12 are vital. See www.Interstitialcystitisassociation.Com.
