Tuesday, at my 38 week appointment I found out I was positive for Group Strep B. My MW told me that since I am allergic to Penicillin, and my GBS was resistant to the backup antibiotics they usually use on people with a penicillin allergy, that I will have to use this super strong antibiotic that she hasn't had to use in a while.
GREAT. Totally freaked me out. I don't want my baby to be on antibiotics from the start, but to make matters worse..it's going to be some strong one that she doesn't even know much about.
Anyway, I get a call today from her asking, "What type of issues do you have when you take penicillin?" I told her I used to break out in a rash when I was younger from it, but haven't used it in a long time because of that. So she said she will discuss with the Dr if they think I should try to see if I have a reaction to the penicillin or just use the other antibiotic. So, needless to say now I am freaking out more! What if I have some super bad reaction to the penicillin? I dont even know which is worse...ugh. I am so scared for my baby. I don't want anything to happen to him. I don't know what to think.
I need some kind of advice or support or something.
