    During the first twelve weeks of my previous pregnancy I was diagnosed of having Group B Strep. At the time I hadnt heard of it, but reading up on it I was quite frightened. I was given anti-biotics anti natally and also during labour and although my son was very poorly when he was born, doctors denied it was anything to do with the group b strep. I havent been to the doctors yet to confirm my pregnancy but i am really worried that I will carry Group B Strep again. Has anyone had a similar situation?
