On Saturday i went to the hospital for an asthma attack. I was asked when was my last period, i replied June 25. I had a feeling i was pregnant i had the nausea, tender breast, even craving certain thing which was very wierd i never experienced this with my 2 boys. For those who wonder why didn't i check earlier i have a cyst and a fibroid my periods are a little irregular. They gave me a test it was positive confused and surprised but still happy. Maybe this would be the girl different symptoms. Well anyway they gave me antibiotics Amoxcillin, 1hour later and out the hospital i get the worst clams in the world. I figure its because i haven't ate. Almost went back that's how bad. I ate and felt a little better. Sunday came spotting i freaks out but read that happenes sometimes. I rested all day. On Tuesday i couldn't be with out knowing and went to the hospital. I was tested again positive, scan revealed no heartbeat at 7 weeks 1 day. Doctor said it will eventually happen. My question is, DID THE HOSPITAL KILL MY UNBORN BABY? PLEase if you know anything about this antibiotic please let me know. Thanks sorry it was a bit to much.

I always took amoxcicillan (sp???) for UTI's and it was way too strong for me. I never took it while I was pregnant, though.

It is considered a safe drug during pregnancy, generally. I'm sorry for your loss.

It is unlikely that the "hospital killed your baby" sometimes things just happen......

ETA I took amoxicillian 2x while pregnant

As has been mentioned already, amoxicillin is an antibiotic of category B, which points to the fact, that so far no relation have been found or established between the intake of amoxicillin during pregnancy and any pregnancy related complication, like miscarriages and birth defects of the fetus. However, it is also important to note that, concrete studies have not been carried out on pregnant women to find out the effects of amoxicillin on the unborn fetus. So, amoxicillin is generally considered to be safe, on the basis of the results of animal studies. But, at the same time, it cannot be completely ruled out that this antibiotic may have some negative effects, which are not known presently. This is what i read.

It's a slow acting drug. It doesn't work like tylenol within the hour. I do understand though, you want an answer for what happened. There's no guarantee either way, that's what sucks about it all. Left with so many questions.

That is all correct information. Just know that amoxicillian is one of the "go to" drugs during pregnancy. Millions of women take it, some even numerous times throughout pregnancy.

It's highly unlikely that you lost your baby due to the antibiotic. It takes at least 24-48 hours for the antibiotic to take affect. I'm really sorry for your loss though. Sometimes it takes several weeks for your body to even notice that your pregnancy is going wrong.. most babies stop growing at a certain point and then 2-3 weeks later you'll start bleeding. The only thing you can do is go back to the emergency room and have them do an ultrasound. I'm really sorry for your loss though.

I understand as best as I can. I've never miscarried but I imagine I would need a reason. It was gods will or just because it happens isn't enough when it's you and your baby. Just remember you didn't cause it. It's not your fault and I hope the next baby makes it here happy and healthy.

:( what a horrible time to be moving. Try to take it easy and explain to your husband that you need time to heal. I'm sure he will understand, at least I hope he will. If it takes you longer to move than expected, oh well. It's far less important than your health and mental stability. Maybe if you get time away from your children you should scream and cry. It could do wonders! Plus there's tons of people on here that are willing to listen to how you feel. I'll listen. :)

Your so cute!! I am taking it easy and he truly understands i have great husband thank god. The worst that could happen did not to long ago but with very bad cramps. It is disturbing and very sad. Even he was without words. In a way the move is bad but it will keep me busy and occupied. Slowly but it will get done. Have a great night courtney. Thanks for the company even if it was a few words it helped a whole lot. ;0)

I just can't imagine what it would feel like. Especially after having a child already. I'm getting ready to schedule an induction for my second and most likely last child and to me it's very sad. I don't even like being pregnant because I have complications the whole time but the idea of never again is devastating to me. I get to bring my baby home! It makes me feel selfish and terrible for feeling that way when I read about miscarrying. In a way your post helped me to see that I've been lucky and I will be okay! I'm glad you have a supportive hubby! Mine is very supportive but not much of a feelings type of guy and more of a realist so when I talk about being sad about not having more he says he's sorry but unless we win the lotto it just can't happen. That's the most support I get lol...but like I said, hearing your story puts it into prospective for me. :)
