    C. Difficile and first trimester

    I hadn't wanted to announce yet that I am 10 weeks pregnant as I've never told anyone other than DH before 12 weeks before. But I am in hospital with C. Difficile and feel so lonely and frightened. Has anyone else had this in the first trimester? Was the baby ok? Feel so rubbish right now

    I'm sorry. Are you on antibiotics? My grandmother had it and it was a long battle for her because she is older. It is very contagious so be careful who visits. The only thing that kills it is bleach.

    I hope they are able to get it under control soon. I have no idea how or if it affects pregnancy.

    It's better to look back on life and say: "I can't believe I did that" than to look back and say "I wish I did that".

    Oh, how miserable. I don't know anything about the effects during pregnancy, but according to Dr. Google "there is no evidence to suggest that C. diff infection during pregnancy can harm the unborn baby." So hopefully that puts your mind at east a little. Feel better soon, hun.

    Thanks for the replies. I am on antibiotics and a drip. I got really dehydrated and ketones were 5+. Much as I'd love to see my kids I wouldn't want them to catch this, it's horrible. Just hope the baby hasn't suffered too much with me not eating and all the dehydration.

    I also don't know what that is but I had hand foot and mouth disease early on in my first trimester. I honestly have no idea if that is comparable to what you have but my doctor was fairly concerned at the time, cause of the high fevers and usually adults shouldn't get it at all. Really hope you feel better shortly!!!!!!

    Our family is now complete - no more babies for us. We didn't get our girl but I wouldn't trade my boys for the world, so in love.

    Hi Justjessica, I know this is a few years after your post but am wondering if anything happened to your baby once he/she was born?*

    I had C.Diff when I was 7-10 weeks pregnant and I too was very scared about my baby's health.* I was given 40 vancomycin antibiotics to take, which I was told was safe to take during pregnancy.* To what extent that is true I am not sure because my baby has been suffering from illnesses for over 6 months now.* It started with fevers, and they are recurring (sometimes every week), and when she turned 20 months she got viral infections (coughing for weeks), ongoing fevers, cold-like symtpoms and mouth ulcers as well at one stage.* It seems never-ending.* Today we found out she has neutropenia and anaemia.* I am wondering if it was due to the strong antibiotics I was prescribed during first trimester?
