Ummm. NOT what I wanted to hear.
I am still going to ask him about it on Tuesday, but WTH?

GBS cultures can occasionally show a â€œfalse negativeâ€ test result or your status may change by the time you go into labor. Call your hospital to see if they have the new FDA-approved test, IDI-Strep Bâ„¢. This rapid test has been approved to determine GBS status during labor, or at any other time during pregnancy, in less than one hour. It is currently the most reliable method to detect GBS just prior to delivery.1
