has anyone with hsv2 (or hsv1) given birth to a healthy baby?
I'm terrified I'm going to pass the virus to my daughter. The closer I get to my due date I'm getting so stressed out. I know the doctors will check for signs of an outbreak when I go into labor but you can also transfer the infection through shedding skin. I'm so afraid .... 😢
Update: I had my 32 week checkup today and talked to my doctor about planning a c section. She was very understanding of why i would want one and said it's completely up to me how I deliver my baby. She also is starting me on the supressive meds now so I have much less chance of an outbreak, if I do choose to deliver vaginally. I'm pretty relieved. Ill make the final decision at my 38 or 39 week checkup🙂
