Our midwife is coming over for a home visit today. I called her yesterday because of my concern that I might have a UTI. She was glad I called and said that she'd bring over a test kit to double check. She also told me that I tested GBS positive. At first I wasn't overly concerned as I know it's not terribly uncommon and is reasonably treatable. (My sister had tested GBS positive too and there didn't seem to have any complications as a result of it.)
Then I started Googling. I'm allergic to penicillin and wanted to find out what alternative anitbiotics are typically given. What I found out was that having a UTI increases the risk to the baby.
I know of all the things that could potentially go wrong, this is minor, but I still can't help but worry that I'm going to make our baby sick.
THis is NOT the kind of update I want to get three-weeks from our due date, but I suppose there's not much that can be done.
