I'm hoping you have your baby safe in your arms or in the NICU right now!
Just thought I'd put in my thoughts on the medicine. Definitely ask your doctor because you are concerned, but if they gave you antibiotics I think it's fine. Remember I'm not a doc, but I was just thinking that lots of women get antibiotics while they are in labor to protect their babies from group b strep. They usually test you for it in week 37 I think, and in my hospital they gave the antibiotics just in case if they didn't know if you had group b or not.
Hoping to hear a good and safe outcome for you and baby, please come back and ask questions. Everything in the hospital can be so confusing and sometimes it helps to get information afterwards to understand what happened.
