Besides gender predictions, a pregnant woman is also apt to acquire an earful of advice about miscarriage, dietary habits and cravings, hair growth, weight gain, and childbirth -- from mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, sisters-in-law, new mothers, friends, and even strangers. And, of course, everyone wants to touch her belly.
I was given antibiotics to treat GBS through IV during the delivery of my first baby 2 years ago.
Now I am 35 weeks of my 2nd pregnancy, at 34 weeks, my doctor tested GBS on test and the result was negative and was told that no antibiotics is required even the labor would be on 40 or 42 weeks. My questions are
1) I thought that GBS cannot be treated, why this time it was negative?
2) Will the GBS come back any time between 34 weeks to 42 weeks? why the doctor was so sure that I don't need to have the antibiotics?
