Thank you again everyone. I feel a little bit better, especially knowing the chances of him contracting it with antibiotics is slim. I know I'm still going to worry, but I'm not quite as scared as I was.
Why did we test positive? Is it just random? Could it have been avoided? Or was there nothing we could have done about it?
Also tested positive. I was concerned because I do not want to be confined to a bed or an IV pole during labor, and my doctor said we can opt for a hep lock in our forearm (so we can bend our elbows and wrists) and "hook up" to the IV pole for 20 minutes every 4 hours for the treatment.
I'm planning on asking my midwife what she recommends as far as diet goes. I know it's probably too late to "get rid" of the GBS, and even if I could I would probably opt for the ABX anyway... But if I can reduce the bacteria or get rid of it completely to reduce the risk of infection even further, I will do it!
Thank you ladies. I googled group b and all the bad things that can happen (bad idea) so now I'm sobbing and freaking out. I'm terrified that he's going to get it and get sick.
@rock1cherry that was my hope. Hoping water doesn't break early so I can labor more at home before heading in.
