Feeling defeated/unsure UC'ing... GBS in urine (PIOG)
Had my 36wk appt yesterday with my OB. I asked about the GBS swab, and she said that they would not be retesting me as I'd tested positive in a urine culture (which they found when I had a UTI early on). Since it was in my urine, there is a much higher colonization which is not likely to resolve itself or go away permanently (even after being treated with antibiotics at the time of infection).
I have been planning a UC this entire pregnancy, and very confident in my decision. I was planning on using a Hibiclens rinse during labor, but now I don't know if that would be enough. I dread with ever ounce of my being, delivering in a hospital again, but I don't want to risk my baby's health because of my own stubborness. From what I was reading through last night, a normal GBS + result (from the rectal/vag swab) you would have a 1/200 chance of baby becoming ill to some degree after birth if you'r not treated with antibiotics (and do not have any other risk factors, such as fever, PROM, prolonged labor, etc...). But your risk factor jumps to 1/25 if you have risk factors, which includes having GBS found in a urine culture at ANY point in your pregnancy.
So what do I do? Would the Hibiclens rinse be enough? Or is it even safe to consider UC'ing at this point? Part of me is ready to just throw in the towel, but this is something I really wanted to do. What would you do? What's the smartest/safest decision at this point??
