Hi Hun, I know I'm not 3rd tri yet but saw your post and had to answer. My best friend had strep c that wasn't picked up in her 1st pregnancy, she's pregnant again, due in 5 weeks and has been told that any sign of labour or waters she needs to go in asap for antibiotics. Hope this helped x
by the sounds of it group c is the same as group b. I red a leaflet about it and it really worried me. Actually put me in tears. Thanku girls. Angelkatlyn when did u get diagnosed with it? I got diagnosed last week x
Hi hun, ive had my baby, shes 8 weeks old 2moro. I had group b strep but never heard of group c!!
If it gets treated in same way as group b just make sure u get the anti biotics drip early on!!
I had a rough time of it during labour....my waters broke monday at 2am but at hosp they told me they hadnt but kept me in anyway....
the next time i was examind after pessary was inserted for induction i was 2cm dilated and turned out my waters had broken....
i only had one lot of antibiotics by the time id given birth tuesday at 9.55pm... (when they like u to have had 2!!) So i had to stay in until 8.30pm friday night and both me and little one had to have canulas and have antibiotics given every day at 2am and 2pm!!
so just keep on at them about it!!!
I have had three babies without anti b's and am strep b pos..... if its the same the hosp will treat you if you have prolonged rupture of membranes, an early/prem baby, a fever or other signs of infection.....urine colonization shows high colonization, and needs oral anti b's otherwise,Treating it with oral anti b's is futile as it is transient in nature...you can have it one day then not the next...which is why they don't routinely screen for it. Like strep b i suspect it is one of the bodies naturally occuring good bacteria that in some women enters the birth canal. There is an increased risk of maternal infection howver your waters would need to have gone atleast 12hrs prior to this being a problem. MOST women come into contact, or have these bacterias harmlessly living within their intestinal tract, and only a small percentage of weak/imuno compramised babies get sick..............I was advised to get to hosp asap so they could monitor me for signs of infection, but i had none and therefore it was not hospital policy to administer i.v's. It is always your choice! Forewarned is forarmed...........do not let it ruin your preg, as so many women walk around not knowing they carry these bacterias and have perfectly healthy births and babies!!!!!!
I am not an expert on strep c, but know alot about b....and as they are th esame familly i would think things must be fairly similar, but consult your m/w if concerned, and im sure they will reassure you hun. x x x x x
