What I thought was simply spotting I was going to have to get used to turns out to be an infection. I'm currently 13 weeks along and started spotting off and on since Thanksgiving weekend. My latest sonogram showed that my placenta is partially sitting on my cervix, and the midwife thought that perhaps this was causing the spotting. But she ran some tests anyway.
My OB called to tell me the latest test results are in today and I am suffering from bacterial vaginosis! This is what has been causing the spotting which as been scaring the life out of me. I picked up a prescription at lunch today for Metronidazol - it is a 7 day scrip and my husband wonders if it is safe for pregnant women. He was under the impression that pregnant women weren't to take any medication whatsoever. I tried to assure him that if the OB themselves did medical tests and prescribed this, they obviously know I'm pregnant and so it must be safe.
Do any of you know of this drug? Have you been prescribed to take it in a similar way? I wonder if anyone else has taken it because I'd like to show my husband their success to calm his fears about all of this. I go back for an appointment Friday morning and hope to be feeling a lot better by then!
Thanks for any input on this.
