You want to be eating yogurt for sure! It will help stop you from getting a yeast infection. When are you delivering, strep B tests are good for 5 weeks. Are you retesting?

I woud definitely be taking probiotics as well. That will certainly protect you from any gastrointestinal side affects that ABX can have on you.

Also, as a side note, I tested GBS+ with my DD (1st baby). With DS (2nd baby), I made sure I was taking my probiotics and GSE and I tested negative. I am not sure if my precautionary measures did anything, but I was happy with the result.

I bought some PBX in the refrigerated section of the supplement aisle WF. I took one pill TWICE daily. As for the GSE, I have a bottle in liquid form. I bought a bag of gel-caps. I would just put in about 5 drops, close it up and take one of those 3x a day.

Ask to be tested again later if you go to term, you need 48 hours for results. Lite/plain is good! The less sugar the better.
