Aimee Blessed Momma to 4 amazing boys, P ~ 9 H ~ 7 J ~ 4 and B ~ 1. Happily married to D Living my almost dream life on an urban homestead, hoping for our forever land to find us soon!
My last baby had an unknown infection even though I tested - for GBS (although I have a hunch it was a false negative).
Believe me, the antibiotics you would need to take during labor are NOTHING compared to what your baby goes through with an infection. To get antibiotics as a newborn, you can't imagine how hard it is. Starting an IV on a newborn is horrid and torturing...but lifesaving in our case.
Anyway, don't beat yourself up about having to take antibiotics. I don't want anyone to have to go through what we went through. It was a nightmare.
So you are foregoing the antibiotics? From what I understand, at my hospital, if I don't get them, they will simply monitor baby really closely and any sign of infection will mean a NICU transfer, which is what scares me so much. The reading I have done definitely leans toward not taking them, but I hate having to make the decision at all.
