My 20 week update

Happy and thankful to have made it to 20-weeks, one of my goals for this pregnancy. It seems like it is going by pretty fast & I'm getting even more anxious to meet my baby boy. I am curious to know how fast (or slow) my labor will be this time around & if I will be able to use my breathing techniques better in labor as well. Also, I went to the ER early Thanksgiving morning & they basically said my bladder infection was almost to the point where it reached my kidneys, so it is good I came in when I did. I was having back pain & increased discharge so I was thinking it may have been a yeast infection, but nope just a nasty UTI. I also have an ear infection that I didn't even know about lol. They prescribed me keflex which will take care of both. The back pain has eased up tremendously so I'm definitely feeling a lot better now.

Thank you! I didn't even know about the ear infection part because it wasn't painful. It just sounded like I could hear my pulse in my ears. I am definitely feeling way better than I was Wednesday night though.

I REALLY hope that clears up fast! Sounds absolutely miserable! One of my pregnancies began with bladder infection, yeast infection, and a positive pregnancy test, all in one doctor visit. HAHA! Hope the Keflex does the job too. It's supposed to be one of the best for pregnant/nursing, but I had an allergic reaction to it. Grr.

Anyway - get better, so you can enjoy the next 20 weeks!

Glad to hear you are feeling better already! Hopefully it clears up completely and you will stay healthy the rest of your pregnancy!

Amanda, the smell of Keflex is completely gross to me lol. But..I think it is doing its job so I won't complain! Thank you both for the get better wishes. I hope the rest of the pregnancy goes by smoothly...but for some reason, my morning sickness is starting to pick back up! No clue why. =/ It never completely went away, but I was down to just vomiting once a week sometimes twice & nauseous occasionally.
