Group B Strep – Positive: 36-weeks 4-days

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.
