Group B strep is not something you need to worry about. Iíve had it all 3 times, you have antibiotics in labour and that takes care of it. Donít spend any time stressing about it. And they donít give antibiotics for it before labour because it doesnít mean you wonít have it anyway during labour as it can come and go in a healthy woman.

Iím 40+4 today. No signs of labour so far. I had a midwife appointment this morning and had a stretch and sweep. Iím 2cm on the outside but midwife couldnít get right up through my cervix so not sure if Iím dilated through to the internal os. Anyway, hereís hoping her poking around in there did the trick!

Baby is not engaged either which is a pain... so frustrated with being overdue.

I had a sweep with my second and ended up going into labour with him a day later, so it might work!

Are we all still waiting at the moment?

Thank you ladies for the group b strep info ❤

I think I'm going to have to make an appt with doctor. They said my iron is just borderline but I didn't want to take tablets as my constipation is bad enough as it is but I read it can be linked to depression I was heavily depressed last time and low on iron

Ya, that is what my OB told me about group b strep. I have just been trying not to worry about it.

Nothing is happening for me yet. I was getting a lot of pressure last night. My husband perpetually thinks I'm going into labour and I just keep telling him I'm not haha.

I had my 38 week appt. Today. All those pains havnt been for nothing but still cant believe i havnt gone yet w all these pains!

Im now 1CM dilated [up from only the outter cervix being 1CM and inner cervix totally closed], im now 70% thinned out [up from 50% since last thursday]. Baby still stationed at -3 but no surprise there. My third didnt engage until active labor so i figure it means nothibg. Cervix still low and soft.

Sending labor vibes to everyone!

My baby arrived in spectacular fashion yesterday morning. After spending Tuesday night feeling angry and frustrated that my sweep hadn’t started any contractions, I went to bed and must have dozed off but woke up to braxton hicks/contractions at 3am. Only had 3, not close together before I woke my DH and told him to call childcare. We arrived at the hospital at 4.20 and baby was born 40 mins later!!! So obviously all the sweeps and BH had been doing something after al

Good luck to the rest of you

Congrats citrusfruit and Laeyla! So exciting to hear that some babies have arrived! I'm glad things went well for both of you.

Guppy, I'm glad you're progressing! Hopefully it just keeps going from here!

Congratulations citrusfruit! I hope youíre both doing well.

Woke up this morning totally downhearted as I expected to feel some cramps last night after my sweep but I didnít feel a darn thing! Havenít even really felt so much of a Braxton Hicks since after my sweep.

However after walking around for an hour getting the kids ready for school and preschool I started losing my mucus plug. So I guess that means something is happening even if Iím not feeling it.

First time in 3 pregnancies Iíve lost my plug before labour - first time I never saw it at all, second time it came out at around 4cm dilated in a giant lump and this time itís started coming out in bits before Iíve had even a single contraction. I hope this means my cervix is getting ready. About to go for a walk to see if I can get baby to engage, little turd is still floating!
