Heart rate was 162 (girl?????) My bp was 130/82 which is great for me. No weight change at all this time, got some tubes of blood to run some titers (check immunity to diseases)
The bad news is that my urine culture was ++, I have group B strep in my urine. Usually, when you are further along you get a swab for GBS and if you are +, you get antibiotics when your water breaks. But, urine GBS is different:
So, I get a round of antibiotics now and then a recheck and possible re treatment later on too. My homebirth midwife doesn't do IV meds at all so this very much could impact my birth. I so hope not, but like my blood pressure, we have to play it by ear and take it week by week.
