I'm so nervous, scared, and excited. I will be admitted Sunday evening and given Cervidil and a dose of antibiotics b/c i am GBS positive...has anyone else done this??

What is GBS positive if you don't mind me asking? Just curious. I'm sure they will look after you and all will be well.

Group B Strep...they told me that 1 in 4 women have it & don't even know it. I was scared at first but they make light of it. ( It's not an STD)

I had that--I was GBS positive, induced at 38 weeks, 1 day. I had antibiotics & pitocin started one afternoon, by the next night I had my baby boy, no complications. I had an epidural though--I am NOT good when it comes to dealing with pain. So long as you get the antibiotics, there's virtually no reason why you should have any GBS-related complications. I hope everything goes well for you!

thank-you...I'm also having an epidural. No sense in hurting if I don't have to. :)

I was induced with Cervidil with my first pregnancy on a Monday at 5:00 pm, I had my daughter after 52 hours of labor (Pitocin and 3 Cervidil doses later) by C section on Wednesday @ 11:13 pm. My body would only dialate to 9 1/2 cm. Can you believe 1/2 cm means so much???? :o) Oh yeah, I didn't have GBS, I was just over due.

Bless your heart Tiffany!! Oh, I pray that doesn't happen to me!! I had such a wonderful, quick experience w/my first that I am thinking I could not be that lucky two times. I was put on Pitocin at about 8a.m. and delivered at 4:48.
