    Oh honey, so glad you never took the tablet - I would be tempted to put in a complaint about your doc?! Regarding the strep B, I would try not to worry too much about it honey, these days the tests are all there to help protect you and baby, and although the thought of having medication isnt very nice at least you know baby will be well cared for when they arrive. :hugs:

    Aw, try not too get too stressed and upset about it. I know that's easier said than done, though.
    Has the midwife given you any other info about it? Will you have to receive treatment during pregnancy or do you just have to wait for an injection when you start to labour?
    Its good that they have picked up on it now, though, so try to remember this. They can treat it, when appropriate, to prevent your newborn from infection. The outcome is still very, very likely to be a positive one although it may cause you some stress along the way.
    :hugs:

    Strep B is very dangerous if not diagnosed, but now they know you have it they will give you some antibiotics when your in labour and keep a close eye on bubs once born for any signs of infection, so try not to worry too much. They like you to have 24-48hrs worth of the drugs, so when you think your in labour go in early!x
