I was tested positive as well. I was so scared and became depressed. I called the nurse and she said since I am having a c-section no need to worry. It tends to happen through the birth canal even they try to prevent it from that even.

I had this with my last two pregnancies and was terrified. When I went into labor the hooked me up to an IV and gave me medicine for it prior to the babies being born. What I would do is if you feel like your contractions are starting to get regular call the hospital and tell them what's going on. That's what I did. I was only 2cm dilated with my daughter but I was 1 1/2 weeks late. I didn't wait until they were unbearable I went as soon I they were constant and about 10 to 15 minutes apart. They induced me and there were no complications. Hope this helps. The worst they can do is send you home if you are there too early. Just let them know you tested positive and go in as early as you feel necessary.

I also just found out Im positive. I feel really scared bc a girl in my week gave birth and lost her baby due to this last week.
My doctor also didn't seem very worried about it - but I am!

Hi!!! I just found out I have GBS. It is just me or people don't talk about having it? I really would like to talk to someone in the same situation...

I had both swabbed, anus and vagina. My results also came back positive, but my OB said not to worry it is 35% common.
She said the same thing, not to worry, just make sure if my water breaks to head to labour and delivery and inform them I am positive, they will want to get 2 doses of antibiotics in me before the baby comes.
I agree, reading it here makes it a little more frighteneing for sure...not the don't worry about it attitude my OB had...but I guess she sees lots of it...good luck to all.
