Re: HECK YES! (GBS negative!) AND we're having a homebirth!!!!!!!!

Did your ob not test you for diabetes when you were around 28 weeks or so? Just curious why that could keep you from having a home birth.

I declined the glucose test at first, but for this particular group of midwives, they require that you don't have gestational diabetes.

Congrats on being neg! I am 35 wks - still waiting for my test.

I just finished reading somewhere that, for a mama who tests GBS positive, the chance of passing it to the baby during natural birth is 1 in 200. If used, the antibiotics apparently can increase the baby's resistance to treatment for other bacterial infections in the future though. Still looking into more research....
