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?!
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?
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 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.
