The story goes like this: I am planning HB, midwife flying in from out of state. Prenatal care being done by FP MD who will 'special' me if A) go into labor before midwife is here or B) must transport. I plan not do prophylatic antibiotics in labor even if I were GBS+. If I were in the hospital I plan to refuse their prohylatic treatment of the newborn also (CBC and blood culture at one hour of age followed by repeat CBC at 12 hours). I would just check vitals every 4 hours. Risks and benefits are what I am looking at here and basing my evidence based decision on. MD and midwife fine with all of this.
So my MD is like why even get screened? If it's not going to change my course of action. Made me start thinking b/c this was one test I was actually going to do and she is trying to talk me out of it, I find this really funny BTW.
What do you think? Am I doing it out of pure curiosity? Hmmmm. Not sure.
Just wondering is anyone else is refusing the screening and why. She also said the babies head is 'way low', could this be why starting yesterday I feel like when I get up my lower pelvic or uterine muscles are stretching? Owww! I am starting to finally feel preggers!!
Thanks in advance for any responses!!
