I went to the OB today to discuss the bacterial vaginosis I was diagnosed with last week by an ER doc. She said I didn't have BV, and everything else looks great. She did an ultrasound, which I wasn't expecting...yay! The moved my EDD to May 14 (it was May 4) based on fetal measurements. My periods are not very regular, so this isn't a big surprise...I'll be ten weeks tomorrow instead of the over 11 weeks we thought. The second trimester seems so far away now, but baby will be worth it! I'm doing more testing this week (glucose because I have PCOS, a urine test, etc.) and they're upping my thyroid meds. So happy they were able to squeeze me in today!


9 weeks, 6 days

so glad you had a good follow up. I wonder why the ER thought you had BV too. Seems really strange to prescribe the wrong medicine for something you don't have.

Hearing that you don't have any infections in your vagina is ALWAYS good news. Congrats, and ultrasounds are always super exciting (something I never realized in the past). What a great day!

The OB said that sometimes ER docs will see bacteria in the vagina and prescribe meds, when those bacteria levels are normal for a pregnant woman (or a woman in general). She said my discharge was completely normal (I guess one of the tell-tale signs of BV is smelly or grayish discharge) and things looked good. I've been having some minor irritation/itching but she attributed that to the excess discharge I've been producing, additional moisture, and a change in pH.

I have respect for medical professionals, but am glad I trusted my instincts on this one and didn't take a medicine inappropriate (and unnecessary) for my "infection."

Thanks, ladies! I'm on cloud nine.
