Now that it is time for the GBS swab, we have another problem. I wanted to be tested last week at 34w6d so that if it was positive I would have time to fix it and retest. I am allergic to so many antibiotics that if I test positive, we're going to have a real problem on our hands. The midwife (the arm destroyer) told me that was a dumb idea because no one can change their GBS status. Then she gave me sheet filled with GBS statistics which was probably supposed to scare me into taking antibiotics but instead just reaffirmed what I already knew. Frankly, if I do turn up positive I will be inclined to birth in a hospital because if I get antibiotics I want to be where people will be standing by to save MY LIFE when I go into anaphylactic shock.
