I was surprised to find that I had Group B Strep with my 3rd pregnancy (it was missed in my first 2!!! but my boys are ok). It is just one of those things that some people have. As long as you get antibiotics during labour, and don't deliver within the next 3 or 4 hours (this time may vary from hospital to hospital) there shouldn't be a problem. My friend has it also but she delivered her daughter really quickly (in the middle of the corridor :stretcher: !) so her baby went to the special care baby unit for monitoring and both were absolutely fine. Don't worry too much and enjoy your pregnancy and labour. I was even allowed to have my daughter in the birthing pool even though I had the group B strep. Just make sure that you get to the hospital in plenty of time and let the staff know that you need antibiotics. Let us know how it goes.
