October 11, 2012 at 1:41 AM
Im sort of worried because I got tested for gbs and It came back positive :( I was hoping nothing would be wrong with this pregnancy.... Has anyone ever gotten a positive test for gbs?? If so is ur baby ok?? I'm worried a little :( did u have it after pregnancy too??

    Is that the strep b stuff?  If so , I had it and took antibiotics.   DD is fine.  I had to have IV antibiotics during labor and drs think that made her  more susceptible to thrush 2 weeks later.   She is 6 yo now so i am rusty on the terms of what i had.

    You will be fine. It just means that you need IV antibiotics during labor.

    It pretty much goes away.  Never showed up in any testing after she was born.  Some women just have this in their system.  It doesnt mean anything was majorly wrong in pregnancy.  She is a flourishing 6 yo first grader.

    That's actually pretty common. They will just run an iv while you're in labor

    I had it with two of my boys.

    Aedan is my middle son and with him, I didn't have enough time to get the full two doses of antibiotics because he came out so quickly that he just needed to be watched in the nicu while we were there. It was a precautionary thing.

    With Liam, I was induced so when they gave me the meds to induce they also gave me the antibiotic.

    You'll be fine.

    Oh and I forgot your last part. It goes away after you have the baby.
