  • group strep b test

    i just got mine done last appt it was negative..

    its just an infection where if you have it you may have to take certain medication and take precautions while in labor so it doesnt get passed to the baby.

  • i'm 38 weeks and they did the same thing on me....forgot what it's called but it's to check if you have some type of bacteria. If your test comes positive....they need to give you antibiotics thru ivy so it doesn't go into the baby....it can be dangerous if you pass it on to your baby....
    if negative....you have nothing to worry about.

  • Oh yeah....group B I had that with my first. I go in for my 36 week tomorrow(with #2). The joys of pregnancy and child birth lol. If it comes back positive they will just make sure to have you on an antibiotic drip through your IV when you are in labor. Not that big of deal....
