"Any concerns with HSV and early dilation?"
 
   I'm almost 31 weeks along and found out at my appointment last week that I'm about 1cm dilated. The doctor did a transvaginal ultrasound and my cervix is measuring fine, so she was less worried about preterm labor, however, I can't exercise, have intercourse, or lift heavy things and have to go back in to be seen in a week. When I go in to see my doctor next week, I was going to ask her whether I should start doubling my Valtrex dosage sooner? She and I haven't talked about it at all, but I thought I had plenty of time to have that discussion, since I'm not due for another 9 weeks. I wasn't sure if being dilated early on could expose my baby to HSV or infection, or if HSV is really just a concern during actual labor, when the amniotic sac has ruptured? Thanks in advance for any info!

It's not a concern at this point.

If you use valtrex, the dose is 500mg twice a day for last 4-6 weeks of pregnancy.

   Thanks, Grace! I brought up to my doctor today that I've heard I should double my dosage in the last month. She said she's not heard that and said to just stay on the 500 mg. I'm in a dilemma now...

ask her to do a literature search on herpes, valtrex and pregnancy. it's the standard pregnancy dose you need due to the natural immunosuppression caused by pregnancy.
