I found out yesterday that I tested positive for GBS. I was surprised because this is the first pregnancy of mine that I've tested positive out of 6! Has anyone else tested positive for it this time or in prior pregnancies? I don't know a lot about it....just that it's bad if the baby becomes infected.
I got it this time around and didn't have it with previous pregnancy. They gave me antibiotics which are already done and they said when I go into labor to head to hospital right away so they can give me IV antibiotics before birth. Seems like nothing to worry about if they catch it in time.
I was negative with my first 3, positive with my 4th, and negative this time. They just added antibiotics to the IV last time, and she was fine. As long as they know about it ahead of time, it's no big deal.
