Brief Answer: See another gynecologist for CTG & Examination Detailed Answer: Hi, You seem to be suffering from bacterial infection that has resulted in all these problems. All symptoms are not really worrying except for decreased fetal movements. Therefore you have been treated conservatively by your doctor and discharged. I feel that was right treatment if your symptoms decreased which made them to discharge you. See to it that you have atleast 10 fetal movements per day. If they decrease, immediately get a stress test ( CTG ) in near by hospital to assess fetal wellbeing. Since the earlier hospital has not done any test, I suggest you get CTG done in a nearby hospital for diagnosing fetal well being. The other symptoms of vomiting , diarrhea and loose stool would have decreased as compared to 2 days back. If not wait till tomorrow and start on antibiotics if need be to combat infection in body . You can get prescription from the doctor when you go for CTG today. They are simple antibiotics which will reduce infection sooner. But such infections generally reduce by themselves. Watery discharge if it is from womb into vagina , please get tested immediately by a gynecologist as it could be water around baby leaking. Let me know if you have more queries.
