I am positive. I was last time too so I am not really surprised. Hopefully we won't have all the thrush issues after birth. If we do at least I know how to handle it.
Thanks Julie, for typing all of that.
I feel SO much better after seeing my chiro today. I was in such a funk about it. I think it really screwed with my false labor on Monday night because I was really freaked out about going into labor and possibly passing it to him. I don't know if maybe it WAS real labor & I scared myself out of it or what.
So my chiro said to eat tons of fermented veggies, kefir & yogurt. I've already been taking 3 probiotics/day and eating tons of yogurt & homemade raw milk kefir (+ eating the kefir grains.) I have SO much in the way of fermented veggies because I was really productive this CSA season. So I came home and ate a ton of gingered beets. My chiro also said his wife didn't test for it but took preventative measures like lots of ferments + an acv/water rinse in the last 2 weeks of pregnancy.
I'll definitely do the rinse - it seems like acv fixes everything.
I'm worried that I'm messing with things too much. Using the Monistat cream internally has me freaked out because I don't like to use *anything* when not pregnant, but when I'm pregnant, it's a whole new level. So I worry that I'm messing with my vaginal flora. Then I read about using a half of a clove of garlic each night until labor but again, is it going to mess things up even more??
I think I'll do the hibiclens when labor starts, if I can get my mind around it. I always wake up in transition and it's hard to do anything that takes any amount of concentration.
Mama to Girl 2/00, Girl 1/03, Boy 3/06, Boy 11/10, and coming July 2015!
