Oh, Derek…

Seriously, the way guys think, blows.my.mind!  Let’s start with a conversation that happened last week between Derek and Derek’s Mom on the phone:

Derek: So, Katie had her doctor’s appointment today
Me (yelling from the other side of the house): Tell your mom about the appointment
Derek: (kinda stuttering) Are, are you sure?
Me: Yes, I’m sure
Derek: Well, Katie had her vagina and anal swabbed….
Katie (screaming now): ….WHAT ARE YOU DOING?  WHY ARE YOU TELLING YOUR MOM THIS?!
Derek: Wait, sorry Mom, I guess that is not what she wanted me to tell you
Katie (still screaming): Why would you think that’s what I wanted you to tell your Mom?????  Oh my goodness I’m so embarrassed


Ok, so lets start with the first part of the story.  At my 36 week appointment, I had my Group Strep B test.  According to Baby Center,
“Between 35 and 37 weeks, your practitioner will swab your vagina and rectum to check for a common infection called group B strep. If your test is positive, you'll be given antibiotics during labor to help keep you from passing it on to your baby.”

Completely routine and no biggie.  Anyway, I also had my first cervical check.  While I know there is nothing to get excited about yet, I was 50% effaced and 1cm dilated.  I was excited just to know that my body was starting the process of having this baby girl.  So, of course, this is the news I wanted him to share with his Mom. 

Why in the world would he think to share the other information lol?!  Oh, Derek!

Lol that is awesome!!

Hope your results come back negative for Group B strep. It is definitely NOT a good thing for baby to get (we see that frequently at the children's hospital I work at unfortunately). But if by some chance you do test positive, the antibiotics will work to treat it so no worries. :)
