anyone know anything about group B strep I don't realky know anything about it and Looked things up in Google hit nothing really helped with anything...
am 31wks and just found out I have it and am worried my midwife tested bwcause is been getting really bad pains in my stomach and I had been getting them since I was around 26 weeks so midwife check for it early...
the doxtor put me on antibiotics but am still really worried about the birth and that he will be okay ... And I got this feeling that am going to have him early bacause of this..
would tealky help if someone can give me some advice x

To my knowledge.. That if you have tested positive with strep B then it should be well documented in your maternity notes an that you will be put on an antibiotic drip during labour.
Do stress this to to remind them just incase its been over looked!!
Quite a few of my friends have had to go through this!! I'm going to request to be tested myself as I can't believe it's not part of our routine pregnancy screening!!
For those who are not aware.. There is 2 tests available, NHS test an the ECM privet test which costs about £35 (I would suggest the privet ECM test as to my understanding it gives more of a definitive result)
I wouldn't imagine the pains you are having is due to this but just incase give your materniry/labour ward a ring to be on the safe side.

^Sorry meant to say.. I would imagine the pains you are having are not due to it.. But call your maternity/labour unit to be on the safe side x x

Aww thankyou so much I been to hostpital with the pains and they put me on a monitor and have me an internal but everything was okay..
The midwife gave me a swab early bwcause aonwtimes it can show in your urine and it hasn't so the swab shown positive and she gave me a call to get in touch with doctor.. And they put me on antibiotics and I think I gotta have them till I end the course of that and then get tested again to see if it is cleared...
i k ow I have to have IV drip straight away when I go into labour when I get to hostpital bacause I wanted a water birth but I can't now I can only normal birth Bwcause of drip...
i see midwife tomorrow to talk about it and about burth plan because she'll have to explain it all more to me...
