I had a second sweep today. I am so frustrated now because despite having period pain all day I’m still only having very infrequent braxton hicks that haven’t got any stronger. Everything just feels so ready to go so I don’t understand why contractions aren’t coming I really can’t take another day tomorrow of attempting to entertain my toddler whilst also being a whale

Ahhh I hear you citrusfruit. I feel like I've had every labour sign except for bloody show and contractions that get stronger. What gives?! I also have a 5 year old and a 3 year old so can totally relate there as well. Hope something happens for us soon!!

I have group b strep as well. It's stressful. My OB really wasn't concerned, but it's never fun to find out there is something to worry about.

I know it's awful but they don't seem concerned here either 🤷*♀️ Didn't even prescribe me antibiotics just said I would get them at birth

Ya, they told me that taking them before birth doesn't matter. You just need them during labour. My OB also said that even if you do nothing the chances of infecting baby are small. He still said to come in right away if my water broke because they would need to get me started on the antibiotics asap. I'm just trying not to worry.

I hope everyone is doing well! I'm starting to really struggle with sleeping at night. Sometimes I wake up needing to go to the bathroom, other times backache wakes me, but often it seems I just wake up and don't feel tired. Maybe that's my body getting me ready to be up all night with baby.

Here in the States if youre GBS+, they obly offer IV antibiotics during labor. They want them ran through within 4 hours of the birth. And then run them every 4 hours until birth. They said they dont give antibiotics ahead of time because it isnt really effective and bc it could come back prior to delivery anyways bc strep b is a naturally occuring bacteria and it fluctuates. Anitbiotics ahead of time likely wont be effective bc it will come back.

I had sooo many tightening, pressure and pains in my back that wrapped around to the frobt, last night. I really thought it was going to turn into something. I ate, drank, slept, etc. No change. But it never got worse.or closer together either. Ugh. I seriously feel like i should be in full labor at this point. Not sure why it didnt stop but it also didnt incrrase.

I have an appt. Tomorrow morning. Really hope at least a little progress was made.
