Hi all,
This is my first question in this forum.
My wife is six month pregnant now and all ultrasounds test so far are okay by the grace of god. But she has been diagnosed as positive toxoplasma in first month and therefore taking rovamycin 1.5 since early pregnancy. The test has been repeated every month and the level is gradually decreasing every month. It started with just 1.33 and now it is 1.04. The level seems low but since it is still positive doctor is keeping medicine on.

Every now and then we are worried about the health of baby because of infection. We just thought of presenting the case in this forum to have comments of doctors and other community members. Of course we are praying to god to have normal and healthy baby.

Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The biggest risk to the growing baby is neurological complications. Normally, after 21 weeks of gestation, an ultrasound shows calcification (calcium deposits) within the brain of the growing fetus or dilation of the empty spaces (ventricles) of the brain. If the ultrasound study of the baby is okay, then the likelihood of the fetus getting the infection is less likely. Let’s hope that everything turns out to be fine. Please do consult your obstetrician for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
