If you have HbsAg, that is the same as saying your HBsAg tested positive, because uninfected persons will not have any HBsAg in their blood.
If you are HBsAg positive, consult a liver specialist to work in conjunction with your obstetrician - check your viral load, if high, get treated and make sure your baby receive HBIG and the first HBV vaccination within first 12 hours of birth.
