Hello 🙂 Congratulations! That’s wonderful that you’re expecting. I will be 28 weeks tomorrow 🙂
I’ve had a number of antibiotics for UTIs with this pregnancy, too, and they can really mess with your system – definitely bringing on an imbalance of too much yeast. I have a few questions for you, I think, before I can really try to give you any answers, though. How severe is your yeast infection? Mildly burning/itching or more along the lines of painful with significant discharge? Also, have you changed your eating habits at all since making the connection with candida? Do you have any other pregnancy issues that need mentioning? I know you mentioned the recurrent UTIs, but is there anything else?
I really think any fatigue that you have felt is probably a sign of low level die off. Severe die off is much more pronounced. So, I would encourage you to not worry about the baby. There are plenty of OBs that give their patients prescription antifungals (Category C drugs) that would cause much more die off much more suddenly than anything you’ve been doing so far. I really think your baby is fine 🙂 But, we can talk more about where to go from here if you’ll give me just a teensy bit more info by answering the questions I asked above.
I’m glad you found these boards, and I’m glad I logged on today (pregnant and with candida) to hopefully encourage you 🙂
