On June 28th I had to do a swab to test for Group B Strep. Well, at my OB appointment on July 4th I found out I was positive. Never having that with my other pregnancies I was alarmed. My OB is very chill and calm. The way he described it was that it is a bacteria already in your gut, but can grow in abundance and now that is why I am testing positive. I would have IV antibotics when my water breaks and my contractions are 5-7 minutes apart. Well, that’s the way I understood it. Of course I googled as soon as I got home. And now I’m scared. This site described what it is well, what to expect, symptoms if the baby is infected.
I pray for a healthy baby and a safe delivery for both of us.
