Hello, I am newly pregnant (6 weeks) and am in need of some advice ASAP. I slipped on a box jump during my workout this morning and took a pretty big gash out of my shin. I ended up at the doctor when it wouldn't stop bleeding and it is apparently pretty close to the bone. It was too big to do stitches and the Dr. (who is not known to be quick to hand out antibiotics) wants me on one, due to the depth and severity of the injury. If I were not pregnant I would probably NOT take the antibiotic, as my gut instincts are telling me that I should let my innate immunity deal with it. I am not a fan of preventative antibiotics, but it is not just my health that is at stake. Pregnancy has made me a nervous mama! Any advice or comments are welcome, thanks everyone!
