E. coli during pregnancy?
Has anyone had E. coli whilst pregnant? Im feeling very worried about how this could affect my baby as I’m 18 weeks pregnant.
I had an appointment two weeks ago where i did a urine test and the midwife said she’d send it off to the lab for further testing as it was abnormal. This morning I got a letter through the post that said I have E. coli and to bring the letter to my GP so they can give me a prescription. I haven’t had any noticeable symptoms besides some cramping, fatigue and nausea but this has been the case throughout my entire pregnancy so far. I’m also very confused as to how I got it in the first place - I know you can it from meat/dairy but I’m vegan and very particular about keeping things clean.
Would appreciate some reassurance from those who have had it and their babies haven’t been affected in any way. I made the mistake of googling it and now I feel very anxious!
