    apparently midna looked into this.. and the treatment for it can be quite harmfull. she will have to tell u what she found.. she said something like.. its better for the baby to recieve anti-biotics once its out or something..

    I'm on another forum where most of the ladies are in the US. They all get tested routinely there, but when I asked my GP about it they said they only test if you've got symptoms?! I don't know whether this is normal or just that my doctors are crap!

    I have my 36 week hospital appointment next week so am going to see if the midwife will do it then.
