    Default Group B Strep??

    I had my nurse appt on Monday and they collected a urine sample. I just got a call that my urine tested positive for GBS. I thought this was a swab they did towards the end of pregnancy? I remember having it done with DS and testing negative for it. The nurse didn't give any details and said I would need to take antibiotics now and then again when I'm in labor...

    I just thought that was kinda weird!! Anyone else test positive for it this early on?!

    Weird Caitlin! I thought and know that it's a test they do later on... Like... 34 weeks or something like that. Bizzar-oh.

    Ugh! Yuck!

    Thanks for the info though! So I was reading that info and it talks about all the steps you should take when collecting your urine sample. When I have my sample I didn't have to pee so I had to eeek it out... I only barely peed into the potty before peeing into the cup bc I didn't need to go and I didn't want to waste any of the pee and have to start over. Do you think this could have affected my results?

    Hmm.. Idk. I don't really know. Perhaps but i would think that likely not.

    I tested positive with my daughter and it was really nothing major. I just needed to make sure that I didn't labor too long at home because I needed to start getting IV antibiotics as soon as possible before delivery. I was hooked up to an IV, but it was totally fine.

    I had it with my oldest and it just meant meds while I was in labor with her which was fine cause I was in labor for 11 hours. I would think they would want to test you by swab later on when they normally do. I would call the drs office to find out if you need meds now for a possible real infection or if its nothing.

    I don't ever remember getting checked for that at all with my daughter, so maybe they don't do it at all in Denmark.

    I am starting antibiotics today. I'm bummed about the iv during labor bc I liked to be able to walk around and not be stuck to an iv pole. Oh well... I'll do whatever I need to do for a healthy baby.

    I was still able to walk around, but like you said, I had the IV pole. It wasn't a major inconvenience though. Hopefully it won't bother you either!
