  • make sure you tell them at your apt tomorrow but i just got over strep and im 28wks. there are antibiotics that are safe to take while pregnant for strep so im sure he will do a throat culture and let you know. try not to worry.

  • I got strep when I was 36 weeks pregnant with my DD. The doc gave me some anti-biotics and I was all better. Just take some tylenol to keep your fever down, try drinking soem warm tea and get plenty of rest. I hope you get to feeling better!

  • I also had strep while pregnant and they just put me on antibiotics. Stay hydrated and keep your fever down until you can get to the doc.
