  • i had it to. Its jsut something you have that had to treat me for it beforei gave birth. BUT BEWARE make sure that traet you as soon as you start dialating going into full labor because that have to treat you before they give you the epideral. I didn't get the epideral until i was 5 cm because they had to wait

  • Hi there sweetie...I had it too. It really is NO BIG DEAL. Of course, get to the hospital as soon as you can so they can start the IV antibiotics. Other than that, there were no problems for me as well when it came to the Group Beta Strep. Good Luck hun. No Worries. :)
