I had it. You'll just get two doses of IV antibiotic when you get to the hospital in labor. Just make sure to mention it when you check in to the hospital. Otherwise, it is generally not a big deal.

If it helps, I only got in one dose of the antibiotics with my first pregnancy, so my baby had to stay in the hospital for 48 hours for observation. She was and is perfectly healthy. I think that, like a lot of things, they try to freak you out to make sure you'll get tested and follow through on treatment.
