The silly thing is that you can + one week for GBS, and then - the next. But they test everyone at 35 weeks and then treat (or not) based on that result. This is silly because you could test + at 35 weeks, and then actually be - come EDD or birth, or vice versa.
So it's really rather silly, the way they test.

If I take them, I would stop taking them after the test (or whenever I happened to run out, more likely). I wouldn't bother continuing until birth, the test is all I'm worried about.
