My DS movements slowed down a lot on my second day in hospital, the consultant blamed the codeine making the baby sleepy and everything was fine. Definitely worth mentioning and getting it checked out. Good luck

It's a bacterial infection, super common, in the anus or vaginal area. Normally doesn't affect women but just to be on the safe side, they test women normally around 37 weeks so if she tests positive, they give antibiotics for baby. Don't want baby to get it that little as an infection can hurt them quickly.

For me at 31 weeks, they just gave me antibiotics as soon as I got there, because there wasn't time to wait in labs. But I will be tested again today, just in case. More than likely they tested you since your condition is still up in the air, so they'll give you antibiotics, just to protect little one.

In the UK, there isn't routine testing for Group B Strep in pregnancy. And not all trusts have access to the proper test for it. The Group B Strep Support Charity has lots of information, and here's a link to their leaflet https://gbss.org.uk/wp-content/uploa...-PIL_final.pdf

It's such a simple swab! Most areas ladies swab themselves in the exam room, no midwife or nurse needed.
