Hi I am 35 weeks pregnant and my dr. told me i had group be strep, they gave me antibiotics for it about 8 weeks ago and they told me they would also give me more during labor to protect the baby. I have read about what happens when the baby is born and contacts it, and it doesnt sound pretty. so my question is has anyone been diagnosed with group b and the baby comes out fine. the dr. knows and about it and i know there gonna give me antibiotics durning labor, but i still just need some reasurrance. I am very, very scared please help.

Hi Dez I also had group b strep and gave birth to a perfectly healthy little girl she is 5 years old now and had no health problems except for the odd ear infection. Hope this helps

What is group b strep and how is it tested for? I'm 35 wks and have not yet been tested I don't think..except maybe at my first prenatal visit because I had a pap and blood work, etc.

Its test through a pap smear and also thorugh your urine. If it is found in your urine they will give you antibiotics while your pregnant and also during labor to be safe, If it is found in a culture they will wait until you are in labor do give you antibiotics which they usually test for between 35-37 weeks.
