Prenatal Check-Up #7

Today was my 7th prenatal check-up. Just like every time, the routine was weight measurement, blood pressure, and urine test. Heard the baby's heartbeat, very strong. I also had the screening of Streptococcus B Culture Genital. Group B strep (GBS) is a kind of bacteria that women have in their intestinal tracts or vagina. The bacteria will pass onto the baby during labor and birth if the mother has it. The doctor used a swab to get samples from both the vagina and the rectum, then sent it to the lab for screening. Praise God, my result was negative, no bacteria.
