I got my results back for GBS...

and it was negative!! They did not want to test me for it, but I demanded to have the test for my own peace of mind. Kind of makes me sad that if they had not known I had it early on in this preg, I wouldn't be dealing with the decision of the antibiotics in labor. By the way, I didn't do anything to ensure a negative result by eating probiotics or use the Hibicleanse.

Just goes to show you that depending on the day, you can test positive or negative. Anyway, anyone else get their results back? Did you do anything to prevent a positive?

Yay!!! I'm glad yours came back negative!

I still have another 3 weeks before they test me for it (at 36 weeks) so we'll see from there. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to try anything out to push for it being negative or not. I'd like to say probably because I REALLY REALLY don't want to deal with IV antibiotics in labor (and I'm staying home as long as possible) but laziness and/or forgetfulness might overpower that.

So, if I'm planning a homebirth and it comes back positive, what then? My MW is checking me at 35 weeks because I tend to go early.
