I've been tentatively planning on a UC...but still going to regular doctor's appointments for prenatal care. I had tested positive for Group B with my 2nd pregnancy and midwife treated it as positive with my 3rd (without testing). I was given antibiotics with both of those pregnancies. This pg, I tested positive again. My OB would like me to come in as soon as regular contractions start so that I can get at least 2 doses of antibiotics. What he doesn't know is I was thinking I either wouldn't come in or I'd come in at the last minute. I know a lot of you don't go to the doctor, but do any of you know you're group b positive (or assume it based on past testing).....and what do you do about it if anything? I'm just looking for suggestions on what I can/should do in order to stay home the entire time or at least up until the very last minute. I did read the article on mothering and that was helpful....but the fear that something could happen to my baby isn't totally gone either. What do you think?
