Good news She is still head down!!

Bad News: I am a strep B carrier my strep test came back positive. But I am going to do some research on it in a bit, because I really know nothing about it....

But I am super happy, she is head down still!

I measured right on at 36 weeks, same as last week so they think I might not get anymore bigger, maybe 1 cm or so, but might not.

I gained 0 pounds....should I be worried with that??

holy cow, you're already at 36 weeks!! wow! glad she's still head down. on the strep b, I think you'll just get antibiotics during labor and they may keep a closer eye on baby. very common, not a big deal when they know in advance.

I was Strep B +ve during my last pg and there is nothing to worry about. Just remember to tell it when you goto labor and they will treat you with some antibiotics so that the baby does not get it!

Congratulations again as the head is still down! Good luck!

yay!! im so glad she is head down still! Like the other ladies said..the strep B is very common! you will get some antibiotics through your iv during labor. Also, its not uncommon to not gain any weight the last month or so..i think i even dropped a few lbs those last few weeks! good luck, your on your way!!

on all the Strep B stuff.. you'll get penicillan or something during labor. Only bad part about it is - that stuff BURNS going through the IV. My whole arm was on fire. But it's just one small bag of the stuff, so it doesn't last long.

Glad to hear she is head down!

YEAH glad to hear she is head down!! Don't worry about the weight, I didn't gain my last few weeks either and my belly didn't get bigger. Jakob was still 9lbs 1oz!
