-I had strep
b and was also induced so had to
have an IV. I did not find it a disadvantage and was allowed to
walk about my room, use the bathroom, take a shower etc. etc - it did not restrict me in anyway. However, because I was induced, I needed almost continuous fetal monitering so wasnt able to walk the halls but a simple IV would not have prevented me from doing this.
