mamma, you're doing awesome! I know this is a letdown---but look on the bright side, every day your lo stays inside, the more mature and healthy she will be. I feel so sorry that you can't get any sleep. Would they let you take a hot relaxing bath? What about birth ball and knees? (draping your arms and head over the birth ball, in the H&K position) Maybe sitting backwards on a chair, with a pillow to rest your head on?
About GBS+: Since you now have some time, since you're not dilated, you can start some home GBS remedies.
-Raw garlic: have DH bring a bulb of raw garlic and some olive oil. Then peel a clove of garlic, cut it in quarters, dip each piece in some olive oil, and swallow the four pieces. Do this 3x a day.
-Take 1000-2000 mg. of vitamin C 3x a day
-Take Echinacea, 2 capsules 3x a day
-Have DH go to the health food store and buy some Sambucol—it’s elderberry syrup and is an AWESOME immune booster. I think the dosage is 2 tsp. 3x a day.
I hope this helps, and that you are getting some rest---hang in there mamma, your baby is thanking you for all you are doing!
