Yes, I was positive. You just get antibiotics during child birth and that is it. I have a healthy 5 year old. Google can be evil lol

Yep. They found it in my urine at like 28 weeks and gave me oral antibiotics at that time. Then when I was in labor they gave me two rounds of Penicillin and everything was fine. He is now almost 14 months old and is already a holy terror lol.

You'll be fine. Just extra antibiotics.

I had it with my 2nd. You're supposed to get antibiotics for it while you're in labor, however I didn't have enough time. We had to stay for an extra day for him to be monitored -- he was and is perfectly healthy. Stay away from Google! Haha.

I got GBS with both pregnancies. I got antibiotics the moment I went to the hospital. I have a healthy two year old and about to have a healthy baby girl. Google is so evil. If you have questions about your situation always ask your OB before you do your own research... they know more. Lol.
