I went for my OB appt. on Wednesday & the doctor didn't say a word about me testing positive for the Group B Strep test. I only know b/c they gave me a copy of my OB records in case I go into labor over the weekend. I just looked at them & saw that I tested positive for the Group B test. What does this mean? I looked it up on the internet & see that 8,000 babies are born with it each year & 600 of them die while another 20% are left permanently handicap----I'm freaking out here! Can't stop crying.
Has anyone ever test positive for this? If so, how serious is this? I never have so don't know what to think. Put a call into my OB..waiting on him to call me OB.
