    Intresting, I've never heard of that but it's worth a try! Thanks!

    Well I had a Dr apt this morning. I told my Dr about all the contractions but made a bet with her that I wasn’t having any cervical changes. She started to check me and then just started laughing! LOL She said it must suck to be pregnant like me right now. Ha Ha Ha, I love her sense of humor. But I was right, no dilation, no effacement, in general no cervical changes at all. Oh well, I knew that was coming. I just think that my body is the type to go from 0-labor in a few hours, despite any pre-labor contractions. I’m betting that Makenna will be here on Thanksgiving.
    Other than that, I'm only up 11lb's the whole pregnancy, BP is fine and no protein/glucose showing up. She did the GB test and we made another apt for next Friday.
    Hopefully next week will go fast with my Bday next week plus my oldest has Mon and Tue off with a short day on Wed so it will be a busy week.

    That is wonderful that you have such a positive outlook on having no changes. I do the same and keep my expectations very low then hopefully I am not too disappointed. Have fun with the moaning - I hope it is helpful.

    Ok ladies, I was going to come on here and post about my wonderful weekend but just as I was typing it up I got a call from my Dr stating that I tested GBS positive. I don't know why this is freaking me out so much but I'm in a total panic right now.
    What exactly does this mean? I know what GBS is and I understand that I will now need to have IV antibiotics once in labor but I have some questions about it all and my next Dr apt isn't until Friday. If you can help at all please let me know your experiences because like I said I'm freaking out! Remember I'm delivering in a hospital with a Dr, not a midwife so we have to use the medical model of care. I also just left a message for my pediatrician to ask him some of these questions.

    Should I go into the hospital earlier than I planned if I am in labor to ensure that I get the full course of antibiotics before I deliver? I was planning on laboring at home for a long time only going to the hospital at the last min.

    Should I fight to decline internal fetal monitoring if they want to so that I minimize the risk of my dtr contracting GBS?

    Will my Dtr have to have IV antibiotics even if I complete my full course prior to delivery?

    I was going to decline the eye goop (can't think of the name right now but I think you'll know what I mean) but now I'm worried that if I'm GBS positive then giving her that extra protection may be a good thing.

    If I have the antibiotics and my delivery goes smooth will I have to stay in the hospital for the full 24 hrs? I had already gotten my OB and Pediatrician to agree to releasing me as early as possible (8-12 hrs after birth) if everything went smooth so does this present a complication to that now? (I feel selfish asking this question, I know the most important part is my dtr being healthy, but I have also always felt that getting out of the hospital as soon as possible is better for the baby anyways, less chance of being exposed to other things)

    Ugg, i know its not really a big deal, the risk of my dtr getting sick is very minimal but I'm just worried. My other dtr Hailey had viral meningitis when she was 6 weeks old and ended up in the hospital with several spinal taps and mega medications to try and figure out what was wrong with her. It was so scary! I'm now wondering based on what I just read on the CDC website if even though I tested negative during her pregnancy if I didn't develop it post test, pass it on to her and she just had late-onset thus causing her sickness. My waters were broken for over 12 hrs with her so that increases her chances of catching it.

    My head is just swimming right now!

    I am sorry. That is a bummer.

    I just had a friend who very accidentally had her baby at home! She is a ncb mom, but was decidedly not planning for a homebirth and was GBS+. They transported her and BB to the hospital and monitored them both after the birth. She did get the eye gook (after 12 hours, I think she said) because his eyes were a little red and I think so far that is all. They also opted for a blood draw before leaving to make sure he did not have any signs of infection (blood counts, etc). So far so good.

    Lots of women have GBS and have fine babies. Another of my friends had it with both of her children and because she was 'late' getting to the hospital they did not have time to put in her IV before pushing either time. (I think they said the IV needs to be in place for 4 hours?) They did give one baby antibiotics because he had signs of infection but the other was okay.

    I think that as long as you are aware that you have it, you can monitor for signs of infection and address the complications afterward. That is my understanding, but I have no personal experience. Hang in there!
