No more labs please

For those of you who were concerned that I am having too lovely of a pregnancy, worry no longer.  Not only am I on antibiotics for my bacterial vaginosis (gross every time I say it), and possibly have a nuchal cord issue- the doc's office gave me what seems like my daily phone call of crappy news to let me know that I'm Group B strep positive.

Which is totally not a surprise considering I was last pregnancy too and had to be given IV antibiotics during labor to reduce Paisley's chances of getting sick from it.  So I figured I would be again, but still....  Just one more thing to add to the list of things to worry about creating complications.  I'm pretty sure I'm not a great candidate for a home birth even if I was anti-hospital care.  (Which I'm definitely not- I want as much monitoring and support available as humanly possible.  In fact, if you'd like to admit me at any point during pregnancy just to keep an eye on things, I'd be all for it). 

When it rains it pours...  Luckily, I think all my labs are officially back.  :)


  1. Wow, that is a lot of crap for you to have to take in in one weekend. I hope your news gets better!
    I am with you, monitor the shit out of me, as long as I walk out of that hospital with my baby, I don't care!

  2. craptastic....hope that's it for crappy phone worrisome phone calls:)

  3. Thinking of you and saying prayers that things continue to go smoothly. Hang in there, Amber. I wish after infertility we all got to have blissful pregnancies, it seems only fair, but hopefully things will be as smooth as they can be after this. *hugs*

  4. Awww man, no fun! But, honestly, even if you weren't positive, my guess is they still would have done the antibiotics with you. At least my OB did - I was positive with my first pregnancy, but negative with my pregnancy with Addy, but they still treated me as a positive because of my history with it - so I had the antibiotics and baby and I stayed an extra day. Hang in there - all of this will pass and very quickly! Thinking of you...
