Re: GBS Test?

I'm not sure what the current reccomendation is, I think the 2nd round is still suggested, just not the "in labor" round.

Cool! I didn't know that. Is it safe? How do you do it? Are you sure it helps if you have GBS?
Thanks!

I am alittle confused..sorry! I was only given it in L & D, so I am not sure when they would give it besides then. The dr said that since it can come and go, that giving meds during L & D were the only way to make sure it was covered. Is that what you mean?

No it doesn't. I didn't with the pregnancy after dd#2 who almost died from it. I was told that it was "active' randomly and wouldn't necessarily be showing up when they did the test. We then decided to skip the test and just do IV meds during L & D. I haven't had an infected baby since! I would definitely.. without thought.. do the IV meds during L & D. I will with every future pregnancy.

Good Luck Mama!

P.S. I am still curious about the garlic though!

Re: GBS Test?

If it can sometimes render false results, then why do they do it???
