I wait.

I went to the Dr. yesterday so that they could run some test and see if the antibiotic I’m taking for the GBS is working. After 14 days on the previous one, my GBS levels ended up higher than before I started the meds. At this point, it’s estimated I carry more strep than 95% of the woman who actually carry GBS (of pregnancy woman, about 1/3 carry it).

So, I’m scared.

My results won’t come back until ‘maybe tomorrow’ but definitely by Thursday. I’m scared they are going to come back and tell me that this round didn’t work either. All of the pieces are there to cause the same outcome as last time. The difference this time around is that we are aware of it and trying to fight back with meds. I just need the meds to work. I couldn’t sleep, my nerves are going nuts, and it’s the end of the fiscal year at work.

Considering we were bought by a large publically traded company a few months ago and the numbers for the sale aren’t complete, this is the not best time for my “glass half empty” attitude. My mind is on the bigger picture in life. Not how to handle a customer credit that was issued after the sale of the company for revenue that was recognized before the sale.

So, I wait. I wait until I hear back with the results.


  1. I hope this antibiotic is working for you! Continuing to pray for you and your little one!!

  2. Thinking of you, praying for you...and hoping that you get good news.

  3. Why were the antibiotics not working???????? Could they tell you why??. GBS is so scary, and the crazy thing is that so many arent' aware of it. I have it and am on oral antibiotics and when I go into labor i will be given iv antibiotics. Your story is heartbreaking, but I hope people will read and see the seriousness of GBS. It isn't something to take lightly

  4. God Bless you and your family
