Hello I’m 39 weeks pregnant and have just discovered I have thread worm, I can’t take any medication as not recommended I have cleaned and cleaned and cleaned but I am going out of my mind, will this effect the birth I feel like I won’t be able to hold my baby because I’m terrified I have eggs constantly on my hands therefore not bonding as I should. I should be looking forward to it all it’s my last weeks but to be honest I’ve just totally forgot about it the cleaning and worry has taken over my life. Is there anything for the itch or any natural remodies that can be taken that are safe, I suffer from constipation I did before getting pregnant so hardly going to the toilet so surely they aren’t being expelled as they should is it advised to take laxatives so I know that they are coming out. I am going out my mind my I’m terrified the eggs are everywhere because I don’t know how long I have had them only started getting symptoms last Thursday. The doctors don’t really seem bothered just get on with it doing the hygiene but it’s easy to say that when they aren’t up all night cos of the wriggling the horrible thought of it all. Just help please any feedback would be greatly appreciated thank you.
