I just had my 37 week appointment and I'm negative for GBS! Yay, no antibiotics, thank god - I was not treasuring the idea of being hooked up to an IV during labour.

Anyways, I don't know if you guys remember but I posted a few weeks back about how I scratched my face and it wouldn't stop bleeding profusely. My doctor didn't seem bothered at the time but since then I've had this small growth forming where I had scratched myself and its gotten bigger and also bleeds easily. Suffice to say I was concerned.

So my doc had a look at it today and apparently its called a pyogenic granuloma and they are quite common during pregnancies. She tried to freeze it off, though she said it doesn't often work but mine is quite small so it might, and if it hasn't dried up and fallen off by next week's appt she'll book me to have it cut off (oh joy).

Anyways, glad to know it wasn't something dreadful like skin cancer!

Oh goodness! You might want to try putting some Apple Cider Vinegar on it every night to assist in the freezing process to kill the cells. Has worked well for me on things like that.

Yay for being negative! And I second what Que said. Take a cotton ball, rip out a small piece and soak that sucker in vinegar, put it over the bumpy thing and strap it on with a bandaid (lovely look I know). When it dries out throw it away and repeat the process. Works wonders on warts of any kind, I bet it would work on that too.

Vinegar...hm! Learn something new everyday!

Glad your visit was a good one! and yay for no GBS! So, are you allowed to reject the IV for fluids? My doctors have always made me have IVs even without GBS because they want the fluids in me (probably more of a precaution in case I became a surgery patient or something). Is anyone else familiar with this being something that hospitals don't budge much on? I think it mostly depends on where you're from..

Thanks for the advice! I'm doing the vinegar thing to try and help it out.
