Re: Declined antibiotic for Group B & regretted it?

just read the OP.. my friend is allergic to the antibiotic most commonly used, so they gave her a mild one and it didn't work and her son was taken an hour away to a NICU and kept for about a week or so. She had to pump every 2 hours and live in a hotel away from her new baby. She doesn't care whether they test her or not, she's opting for the stronger version (not the one she's allergic to) for this baby.

I know that you can test positive one week and be negative the next and then positive the next week, etc. So I know it's safer to get it. I would prefer not to get it because we had thrush issues, but I would prefer thrush to what my friend went through.
