TMI!!!! passing membranes after birth.

Second babies? Forgotten everything about breast and formula, napping and wrapping and you are are going a bit MAD because you haven't slept in three days? Or it's your first baby and you are here researching the joys of weaning?

Definitely rearrange parents evening, I'm sure the teacher would understand.

((((Robyn)))) hope you feel better really soon. And remember you can go to a different hospital A&E - go back to hillingdon if they have an A&E xx

call school and rearrange. Your health is more important.

And FGS and we PLEASE move to the commune now so we can help in situations like this?!?!

Much love, robyn. It took 5 days of IV antibiotics to shift my infection because it had set in with 5 days of not being treated because c-section pain meds masked my fever. The first sign i was on the mend was the pain went away. I didnt have any yoghurt, but did have lots of oats. Despite me and T having IV antibiotics for a week each and then me having an oral course for 10 days neither of us got thrush.

Oh no. Don't let the dr frighten you. You do need to rest and take it seriously but I would be surprised if those abs don't shift it. I got my pp infection after dd1 (managed 3rd stage) on about day 4 and I didn't want to take abs so left it thinking maybe it wasn't. By the following afternoon I felt horrific and could barely walk back to the car from the supermarket. I got home and started taking them and got better. I got them again with the other two births, both times because of a bit of retained matter (both natural third stage) and again it took a day or so from first thinking I had an infection to knowing it and getting the abs and I got better both times at home. I did get thrush every time though so do whatever you can to prevent it.

Hugs and healing vibes (((())))

My lovely neighbour had greta while DH was out and m is no trouble so we were fine.
M&FIL are coming over tomorrow, I'd rather they weren't but they've been told what's going on and were all 'oh we'll just disappear when the MW comes' etc so I can't really say they can't be here.
Martha's awesome according to her teacher, so that's some consolation at the end of a crappy day at least.
Is it just probiotic yoghurts and oats to ward off thrush then?

I think garlic is good too?

I had a womb infection too after H. I only knew as my bleeding got worse and I had pain in my stomach that wasn't getting better. Antibiotics helped me too. Hope you feel better soon x

((Robyn)) but good you've caught it early, hopefully you'll be on the mend in no time. The other thing I remember for avoiding thrush is cutting down on sugar / yeasty things.

And well done Martha!

((((((((Robyn)))))) I really hope the abs kick this quickly. It's so rubbish when you should be basking in the glow of a babymoon. Hope your girls make you feel better with every snuggle you get. Take care.

Yes garlic is meant to be good - not sure if taking garlic supplements would make your milk taste a bit too much though! I once did an anti-thrush diet and took loads or garlic, pro biotics, and cut back on sugars and starches and yeast. Obviously you can't go mad if you're sustaining a healing body and a (massive :wink: ) newborn baby but maybe try to avoid sweet stuff at least, and stick some extra garlic in meals that allow it. Maybe a low sugar flapjack recipe? Or porridge and live yoghurt for breakfast?

Glad your neighbour could help out. :-) and go M!

I hope you manage to about thrush. You can get probiotic supplements that have more bacteria than the yoghurts.

Only just caught up with this. Glad the Dr sorted you out with some ABs, and fingers crossed you start to feel a lot better very soon.

Sorry to hear this! Hope the ABs are working now and you're getting plenty of rest and snuggles with your gorgeous baby.

Feeling much better this morning. Midwife's been and my temps come down. I'm still bleeding a bit too much though and have been told to rest more.
My mum has typically managed to make this into a total drama by googling and getting carried away and phoning my sister and MIL and threatening to come down and just generally making a big scene of how worried she is. Sigh.

I'm glad you are feeling better. Hope you are resting! Can you get anyone to help out so you are doing less running around?

DH is home so there's no need for me to do anything but bf really, I've just been stupid and have been going to playgroup/joining in with the school run etc because I was trying to keep things normal for m and g, and because I'm impatient and bore easily!
