HELLO.... I was told that I was GBS+ when I was preg with my son (now 3), from what my Dr. told me was that when I went into labour I had to be put on an IV antibiotic so it wouldn't affect the baby. I know that it can affect the baby but with proper neonatal monitoring you should be fine. The thing that I would talk further with my Dr. about is the high blood pressure. I had loads of headaches, swelling, and high blood pressure and it turned out to be pre-eclampsia. Just be careful and make sure your doctor checks that possibility. I know it's easy to worry about your baby when you’re pregnant, but your body is stronger than you think and as long as you take care of yourself and you have adequate health care you and that baby will be fine. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions..... Michele
how soon after i start going into labor should i go to the hospital? could i just wait untill my contractions get closer and closer then go or should i just go straight there? if my water breaks would it be best to go there soon after? sorry for all the questions
As far as the contraction things goes I don't know b/c I was induced, I think it's 3 min apart, but I may be wrong. Hopefully one of these other ladies knows the answer. One thing I do know is that you are supposed to have the antibiotics before your water breaks at least thats what my dr. told me. I believe you always have GBS so any pregnancy you have you will always have to have IV anibiotics in labour. With only one pregnancy I am still very new at this as well. I hope all goes well for you and baby....
I was GBS+ with my daughter and needed to be on antibiotics during laboring... They gave me it every four hours. As far as affecting you after the birth, you shouldn't have a problem. All the research I did on it didn't say whether or not it would ever go away or would it be a problem. It really is only serious for the baby and older people who get it, as it can be serious. I did need to have my daughter tested 48hrs after birth to make sure she didn't have an infection from it. About the laboring part, you'll need to ask your Dr if they want you in immediately to get you started on the IV - I was induced so I didn't need to worry about this.
