Group B Strep
I just received my Group B Strep test results and it says DETECTED!!! I have have had 3 healthy pregnancies and never had a problem with Group B. What do I do? What should I expect? I'm so nervous that it can be passed to my baby

They'll give you antibiotics during labor so you don't pass it to your baby. Just got mine back yesterday and came back negative.

This just means you will be put on antibiotics before you deliver :)

From what I remember of my last labour (also positive for strep B) they gave me antibiotics but also had to deliver within 24 hours of waters breaking to avoid infection or something. So had to have things sped up a bit
