Scared O

brittany - September 8

I am currently 21 weeks pregnant, and last week found out that I have Group B strep found in my urine. My doctors said it was common and they gave me antibiotics to take orally, and I will also recieve them during labor through my IV every 4 hours..my doctors were calm, and tell me that as long as I am treated properly everything will go well..Im just soo scared, if anyone else knows or has been in any similar situations, any support given would be nice :o)

It is pretty common. Sounds like your doctor is on top of it to have caught it so soon. Some doctors don't test until you are close to delivery others don't test until delivery. They become aware of it during labor and then treat it. Early testing may not accurately predict if you will have it when you deliver. I suspect you will be tested for it again and that your doctor is just being cautious now. I have just recently been tested for it, no results yet. But I did do some research on it just to ease my mind--just in case. Here is what I found: http://www.childbirth.org/articles/GBS.html http://groupbstrep.org/GBS/aboutGBS1.html#whatis This is a really informative one from the Centers for Disease Control. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dbmd/diseaseinfo/groupbstrep_g.htm
