Group B Strep test

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

My doctor said you pretty much just need to labor at the hospital so they can give you 2 shots through your IV before you give birth

It's no big deal, I promise. They just have to give you IV antibiotics during labor. I had it with my first and labored alot at home. Went to the hospital with my contractions about 1.5 mins apart.  And they were still able to get the antibiotics in me before it was time to push.

I had iv antibiotics. It'll be a okay mama! I'm positive for it again with this baby.
