I've just tested positive and am due in two weeks. Mw says to go into hospital as normal (when I start contracting) and they will monitor me through labour for any further signs of risk. If I show any, I'll get an IV antibiotic drip. They also will monitor baby for 24 hours afterwards, every couple of hours. Hope this helps.
Hi, I had group B step and wasn't really told anything special about going in, basically just not to leave it too late as I would need IV antibiotics prior to delivery. Just to let you know, I have the antibiotics and it all worked out fine….if someone else is reading this and haven't had their baby yet
I was found to have it when I was halfway through my induction for DC1 (having had waters breaking early and took 3 days for results of tests on my waters to come back). So for DC2, I was told to go in "quite early on". So after four hours of mild contractions, I went in and after half an hour of monitoring, they looked at me as if I was mad for thinking there was any way I possibly needed to be there and sent me home. Not saying they weren't right (it was another 24 hours before I went back, by which time I was contracting quite strongly). But it seemed to me they should have been clearer by what they meant by "quite early on" as I still don't really know what they meant by it!
I was told I had to go in as soon as my waters broke. I didn't know my waters had broken when they did, to cut a long story short, I was whizzed in, put on antibiotics I think and induced straight away. I think. It's a bit of a blur but there was certsinly s plan in place.
I knew I had GBS from 39 weeks. Wasn't given any specific instructions about going into hospital. I rang when I went into labour and was told to ring back when I was having 3 contractions within a 10min period. That's when they told me to go in.
