I don't post on this forum too often (mostly because I keep forgetting about it because when I did post to other groups they weren't very active and didn't get many responses).
Anyway.... I figured this might be the best forum for some encouragement/advice.
I was tested for GSB at 36ish weeks and tested positive :( I requested to be tested a 2nd time which my Dr. agreed to (I'm delivering with a MD in a hospital because I couldn't find a midwife I was comfy with and this MD delivered my son but I now am disappointed I didn't find a midwife...anyway, that's a sidebar and I guess a little late to switch since I'm due this Saturday ;-) ). So I upped my probiotic and took the advise of my natropathic dr. and did some stuff to hopefully get rid of GSB. Got results today and supposedly results are still +.
Which as I'm sure you all know means IV antibiotics during labor. I had this with my son and since I was induced I think I ended up with 3 bags of antibiotics :( This sent my yeast into major overdrive which resulted in my son and I dealing with thrush for MONTHS! I was really hoping to avoid this at all costs. Nursing was so painful and I was miserable because of the yeast overgrowth for months.The Dr. says there's no way of knowing the antibiotics caused the thrush but I call bull on that one....
So, anyone have a similar experience with a first pregnancy and NOT have to deal with yeast issues the 2nd time around? I dread the experience if it goes down like it did with my first.
Any advice as to how to avoid yeast this time? I already watch my sugar intake and don't really eat breads, pasta etc... since I know they feed candida. I also already take a probiotic.
