OK, so here I sit at 38 weeks. I have the clothes, the breastpump, and the cloth diapers. I even have gel-free disposables just-in-case. I avoided gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, I got my baby to turn head down, I rented the birth tub ($200, thank you very much), I bought stuff for my birth kit, I convinced the dh not to circ, I have not one but two wonderful midwives and a doula ready to attend.
And my stupid GBS test comes back positive.
It's enough to make a pacifist climb a clock tower with a sniper rifle.
This is SO not a happy time. I HATE the hospital here. They have a mandatory EFM policy, not to mention how hard you have to fight just to get rooming-in, and they don't allow ANY eating or drinking in labor except for ice chips.
I've been on here for several hours looking at statistics, and I've found nothing that really convices both DH and I. I want to believe that I can have a homebirth with GBS but I am scared. If something crappy is going to happen, I just know it will happen to me, that's the way it always happens!!
Grrrr. Is anyone else gbs positive on this board?? How are you dealing with it?
