Re: anyone else GBS+ and have issues with antibiotics?

Thanks ladies!

I was reswabbed today after using hibiclens and will keep using it if this swab comes back negative. If it's positive I have an rx for IV vancomycin (to be administered PROPERLY so I don't react again!) but will likely use the hibiclens as well anyway since you never know how long labor will end up being and the abx aren't 100% either. Pretty comfortable with this, just waiting to find out how much a vial of vanco + all the supplies needed costs since it requires a pump and tubing and slow infusion over an hour, not with a bolus in 20 or so.. I know it's not going to be pretty :S
