maybe this is something you’ve done already, but could you ask your doctor to prescribe another antibiotic that is more baby friendly? I think there are antibiotics approved during pregnancy..?

I don’t have any knowledge other than the same thing your doctor said. I’m 7DPO and am on Amoxicillin for a sinus infection. My doctor told me the same thing your doctor did. I guess I’m fine with it because he would feel comfortable prescribing it even if we know for sure I’m pregnant.

I was conceived on antibiotics and turned out fine. It was a healthy pregnancy (all be it a surprise) and a healthy baby.

You are in the TWW and you have a rash after a tick bite. I’d say the odds that you have lyme disease are higher than the odds that you are pregnant. Those lyme rashes are easy to identify. I had one once and my doctor confirmed my suspicion when she saw it. If you do have a ring-shaped rash around the bite, you most likely have lyme disease. Timely treatment is crucial. I would take the antibiotics.

What I don’t understand is, why didn’t the doctor have you come in so he could look at the rash, especially since there is a chance that you might be pregnant?

The odds of the category B drug effecting the baby are much lower than if you got a tick borne illness. I would take the drug as long as it’s no higher than a category B. Most morning sickness drugs that people take are category B’s and in this case people clearly know that they are pregnant. Hope you feel better.

Antibiotics  lower the effectivness of birth control so I am assuming there have been a few babies concieved while mom was talking antibiotics.

Also my FH bosses wife had lime diseases and it was terrible( it took a long time for her to be diagnoised so she was not treated) all her symptons were MS like she is now in a wheel chair she is beginning to get treatment so she is slowly getting better.  I would say the risk of getting lime disease probably outweighs the risk to the baby.

I would definitely take the drug.

Definitely take the antibiotic. It will be okay! Take a rest day, relax and breathe.

I took Amoxicillin at about 8 weeks pregnant when I got a UTI. It’s a pregnancy approved antibiotic. I would take the meds.
