How long did it take to get your group B strep results?

A week.  They may have gotten the results in sooner than that, but they just told me the results at my appointment the following week

Thanks, I bet that's what will happen with me too. I usually can see my results online but don't yet. I go Monday so I'll likely know then. I'm just curious...anxious...bored....38

I called the lab it was done at and they mailed me my results.  So I could know before my appointment.

I usually get my test results the next day or so because they're all posted on my online personal account but I haven't seen these yet Unknown

Mine took a couple of days, but it's nothing to be anxious about. :)  Worst case, you're positive, they give you a round of antibiotics and then put ointment on the baby's eyes (some places do that anyway).  

I was group B positive with my first and didn't have time to finish my antibiotics before going into labor.  They hung a bag of antibiotics IV while I labored, then monitored him carefully afterward and he was fine.  Same with my daughter...I went into labor prematurely and hadn't even been tested yet, so they just treated her carefully.  With my third, I was group B negative.  Woohoo!
