With my 2nd birth I had them on my due date. I used cream and the dr induced me at 7 days after outbreak, my dd was fine.
with my last one it was six days since the outbreak and they would have let me deliver him but he had some distress. and I had a c-section
with this one I am going to be taking meds from 36 weeks on. it was a decision I have made knowing that I DO NOT want another c-section. Have you tried the acylovier cream? vinegar baths help me.
I hope it all works out for you!
Amila I'm so sorry! I'm also due on the 20th I tend to believe that your body "knows" and holds the baby in when there is a need to... Trust and believe that the baby will come at the perfect time, when the outbreak has cleared and you will have the homebirth you want and deserve!
