Just wanted to give an update for all of you who responded to my post a few weeks ago when I asked about the strep B test. I had the test at my appointment this past week, and my midwife called on Fri to let me know I tested negative! I am very happy, BUT a part of me still wonders if I could be positive again by the birth since I was with my last pregnancy. :rolleyes: Anyway, we talked about what would happen if I HAD tested positive, and she said that I would have stayed for 12 hours at the birth center instead of the standard 4-6, and they would have showed me how to take the baby's temp at home and what to watch out for. SO... I think that I will still ask them how to "reliably" take the baby's temp at home still and of course anything else I should look out for. Anyway, I'm happy that I did test negative (I didn't do anything special prior to the test), and hopefully there will be no issues.
