Hello Sharon,
Thank you for your query.

Crohn's disease is diagnosed by a biopsy, so if your colonoscopy is normal, chances of having Crohn's are very less.
The breathless ness and edema is due to your hypertension.
Moreover, if all tests are normal, your chronic diarrhoea could be induced by the various drugs you are taking, and also due to pregnancy.
You need to consult an expert Gastroenterologist again.
Also, try psychiatric counselling and behavioural therapy for your depression.
Investigate yourself for calcium and vitamin D deficiency for your aching joints
You seem to have multiple problems , which could very well be psychosomatic.
Try regular exercise, diet modifications and yoga.
Take care
