I was positive for my second... and I got the antibiotics and still had to stay 48 hours.. I am pretty sure at my hospital anyhow, 48 hours is required for GBS with or with out antibiotics... you can also opt to get a hibiclense in place of antibiotics.. though I think you would still have to stay 48 hours... Also at my hospital the baby has to get an actual needle stick (not a heal prick) to test their blood if you didn't get the antibiotics... and that is kinda sad
