Not really. It’s just a colonized bacteria. If you are not feeling bad it shouldn’t be an issue. Make sure you are eating a healthy diet because that is good for your immune system. Sadly, bacteria and viruses are everywhere and being pregnant alters your normal flora and immune response making you more susceptible to bacterial colonization. However, If you begin to feel symptoms go to the ED and get yourself an antibiotic

I am/was also GBS positive during my pregnancy. They never talked to me about ways to change that, just to get antibiotics during labor. I’ve read some people use probiotics, but I don’t know how effective they are.

Agree with the PP, this is just a colonization. The GBS is on your skin and in your GI tract. Just wanted to clarify – you had KETONES in your urine and not keynotes. Furthermore, they do not indicate dehydration but rather a fasting state (in a normal healthy patient). Ketones are produced when the body switches to energy production from fats instead of from carbohydrates (hence the fasting state). Ketones are very common in urine collected in the morning but can indicate insulin deficiency in diabetics.
