Preparing for GBS test? - Page 2

post #21 of 26

Just found out I'm GBS negative. Yay!

I'm negative!!! I can't believe it, I was sure after being positive twice that I was doomed!


For the record... I didn't do any hibiclens or the like, just probiotics, cranberry supplements 2x a day, and kefir.


It's been 8 years since my last test and since then I have been on broad spectrum antibiotics, so I also wonder if that contributed.

I'm a little late to this discussion - I haven't gotten my result yet - got swabbed on Friday - but I've been taking Pearls probiotics daily for the second have of the pregnancy.  Hoping to be negative this time - I've had 2 out of 3 positives.

i should have been reading this thread a little more closely. i didnt think i had anything to worry about bc i had never tested pos ever. well this time i did. my midwfie says no big deal and i can still homebirth but i cant help but feel a little freaked out by it.
