Hi! I have had GH for about 6 years. I am 33 weeks pregnant and it has been a constant worry for me throughout pregnancy. I am actually scheduled for a c-section, not because of the GH, but because I broke my pelvis a few years ago in a car accident. So, transmitting the virus via vaginal birth is not a worry for me, and you'd think that that would have made me feel better, but after making the mistake of Googling I discovered that the virus can actually be passed to the baby "in utero" (I thought it was only at birth). I've had MANY outbreaks during my pregnancy, no doubt on the cervix etc, and that's just a little too close to my baby for my liking. I know if you've had GH before you got pregnant, antibodies are passed to the baby to protect him, but apparently that doesn't happen until later in the pregnancy, like 28 weeks or something, so what was protecting my baby when I had outbreaks at weeks, 12, 16, 24 etc? How do I know these didn't pass through the placenta and he has been infected? I have had lots of scans confirming that baby is doing well, so I know that my fear is slightly irrational, but I just can't shake it I have nightmares that he's going to be born with scars all over his body where he was infected in the worm. Please tell me this is not possible and I am worrying about something that is not possible. Thank you so much!!
