Hi Everyone
I hope I can get some answers...
Just about 4 weeks ago I had really bad diaherria*.. I would go abot 5-8 times a day and stool would be mucusy... ok went to Doc and they took stool sample... About 1 1/2 wks later they call me and tell me I have C-Diff.  Now my question is... Will this harm the baby?  All my syptoms are gone.. I am going regular.... im 6wks.. and wont have my first Gyno appt until the 8th of Oct.  Please help!!!!

did you doctor know you are pregnant?
You have to make sure its gone ..did you take meds for it?  i would call your doctor and see if you can get in sooner then 8 weeks and tell them cause you should get more tests done to make sure its gone..cause it "can" be harmful depening on how bad..i would call your docs asap...Im not trying to scre you just help i read about it alittle after i read your post..So call your doc and keep us posted...Gina
