Hi lita. First, congratulations!
It is my understanding that a woman who has Lyme and is pregnant should be treated with a safe antibiotic throughout the pregnancy to minimize transmission. Dr. J. is an expert on congenital Lyme. I highly recommend calling his office. If you need his number, you can email me. At delivery, the baby and placenta can be tested.
Let us know what you find out. You will be a great mom!
lita, did you get my email?
I agree that it is important to start treatment as soon as possible and to consult with an experienced doctor. Ask Dr. J's office to let you know if there are any cancellations. You may be able to speak with him sooner this way.
lita, I am sorry you are so upset and that your husband is not there. Hopefully the doctor will get in touch with you over the weekend, and you can tell him your concerns.
You are doing everything you can, so please try not to worry.
