Re: When do you go to the hospital?
This is me exactly, too. I'm hoping to be more patient and not be induced less than a week overdue, but I am worried about getting to the hospital for the 4 hours to get both doses of antibiotics. In the past I have been induced at 2-3 days over. My last two inductions have gone fairly quickly once my contractions started (less than 6 hours) but I'm not sure how my body will act on it's own. In three labors I've only felt 3 or 4 painful contractions and that was with my first delivery. I was on pitocin (like all 3 labors) and my dr broke my water and my pain level went from 0-10 in about 3 minutes, so I've always asked for an epidural as close to having my water broken as possible.

My question is, if you were gbs+, how did you time it so that you could get the antibiotics, ideally 4 hour's worth, and not a minute more. I don't want to go too early and stall, or too late and end up with baby having to stay. Anyone have experience with this?
