  • I was positive with 3 or 4 kids. All were fine. No problems or complications or issues or anything. It was the least of my worries, really.

  • I haven't had it (well I get the results back for this pregnancy in another week or so) but I've read that even without medication of any kind the chances of problems are less than 1 in 200 infants. That's like a half a percent. For children born to mothers who received medication, it's even less. They may just monitor him for a few hours after birth (as a precaution since most cases of illness show up quickly...although some do show up later on) but you have every reason in the world to believe that everything will be fine, he will be healthy, and you will both go home on schedule. Good luck!
