After 4 m/c, our is here!
Having had one previous baby with GBS disease is a risk factor for having another. This baby is presumed to be at risk and further testing is not necessary; this has been the protocol for ages. If I was concerned about your labor being too fast for the IV antibiotic protocol I would be doing everything I could to be sure you aren't colonized, including oral or IM antibiotics in the last few weeks of pregnancy. You would need to take the antibiotics courses continuously until delivery to be sure you don't become recolonized.
Mama to 4 amazing little people, another little expected 3/6/12!
