Strep B

So my last pregnancy I had tested positive for strep B. I'm on my second pregnancy now.. Does that mean I still have it ? Or could it be gone ?

Everyone's different. You might have it again. You might not.

You need to get it tested!!! I had strep b in my last pregnancy which caused my baby to come 2 month early! I was tested negative the second time but you'll need to keep checking because it comes and goes!

Well im 26 weeks today . if I recall I think I'll be getting tested really soon. I'm scared because I got pregnant too early. Which already puts me at a higher risk of premature labor. Meaning like I conceived when my son was a month old. So I'm a lot nervous.

They usually do the test around 36 weeks.
