Hi, i had a call today from the hospital to inform me that i tested positive for Group B Strep (had no idea i was being tested for it). I am 15 weeks 4 days pregnant with my 3rd baby and had a swab to test for amniotic fluid as i started 'leaking' clear fluid (i had pprom at 26 weeks with last pregnancy) and i also have a short cervix (2 - 3cm) due to 3 lletz loop procedures to remove pre-cancerous cells. My last baby was born at 35 weeks due to infection levels rising after my waters ruptured at 26 weeks. He was very seriously ill about 3 days after birth but not sure to this day what nearly killed him. Im now worried that with a short cervix AND Strep B that we could be dealing with another premature and very sick baby! Please help, i feel i need to know exactly the risks we could be dealing with instead of being unprepared like last time. Thankyou x
