So after having my first baby 2 years ago I was told I had strep B after a swap for suspected thrush. Now in this pregnancy I was tested at 28 weeks and was negitive and then again at 36 and was negitive. I asked if this ment I didn't need antibiotics and I was told no I would get them as its 2 negs and the pediatricians agree with not giving antibioticsafter a neg test. I was in two minds about this! On one hand I really want the antibiotic as I am paranoid it will return and my baby will get taken away from me after birth like my little boy was 2 years ago(delevered at 31 weeks), but on the other hand I would like a water birth so was trying to trust their word that I do not need antibiotics during labour. Anyway! Today at my 38 week appt the midwife stuck a big yellow sticked on my notes 'STREP B ALERT IV ANTIBIOTICS'. I asked her why as I was prev told by one of the other 10 midwifes iv seen this preg that I wa,t to get them now and she said oh ill find out by next week for u, the results arnt on my screen. Anyone else know what protocol is? As the midwifes don't seem to.
