balls! gram b strep positive!

Oh man this sucks! I get the dreaded positive gram b test! Boo! Hiss! Yes, I am googling the piss out of it, but all signs point to a penicillin drip every 4 hours. At least this guarentees me that my doc will not strip my membranes. I can begin to labor naturally and not have to worry about interventions.

Oh, and less vag checks, too.

On that note, I am 36w1d today and am 1 cm dialated. This means nothing as baby still hasn't dropped, and my cervix is still high, but doc says that the baby is doing a textbook kind of progression. Yeah to baby!

Off to google some more.

Group b strep is not a big deal to you and as long as it is treated in labor, baby is good too. So don't worry about it ;) glad to hear things are going well otherwise!

Dang! about the positive. I am pretty sure I am heading that way myself, bc my hubby just came back as a carrier pre-op before his back surgery 3 weeks ago.
Try to look at the 'bright' side. I heard those pelvic checks are no fun;)

How exciting you are in your last month!!! full term it is!!!!!!!:)

SOme naturopaths have a Group B Strep protocol, they can usually clear the bacteria in 7 days....you may be able to ask for a retest?

Oh that sucks! But from what I've googled, doesn't seem to be a huge deal. Just something else to deal with... Yeah for progressing!!!
