At my most recent appointment (35 weeks), the doc mentioned the Group B Strep test.

I tested positive in both my last pregnancies so I am not being tested this time..I will be treated at the hospital as if I have it now..Not a huge deal as everyone that walks into labor and delivery gets an IV anyway..ugh..

I read that somewhere...

Though I remember being positive with my son and getting antibiotics, I don't remember being positive with my daughter and getting antibiotics, so they OB retested me this time.

I don't remember having the strep b test when my older daughter was born 10 years ago.

I was told they test everytime even if you were positive in a previous pregnancy.

Strep B is curable.
