Urinary Tract Infection Yuck

Apparently, I have a UTI and didn't even know it. That kind of grosses me out to be honest. I would hope that I know my body well enough to know when it's sick or fighting an infection, but I guess not. My Dr called me today to let me know that the urine sample they took on Friday showed that I had a UTI and they needed to call in an Rx for me to take. I have been feeling yucky lately and I have been feeling lots of pressure and the need to pee all the time, but I thought that was the pregnancy making me feel that way. Has anyone else ever had to take antibiotics while pregnant? I know they are safe but I still wish I didn't have to take them on top of the Zofran I am already taking.

oh I'm sorry! Sad UTIs are no fun! At least your doctor caught it before it got super bad, ya know? I have had to take antibiotics for strep throat/tonsillitis while pregnant before and everything was fine. Hope those antibiotics kick it to the curb before you have to experience any more symptoms of it!

Yuck! Hope you get feeling better soon! I am currently taking a Z-pack to get over a very nasty sinus infection. Antibiotics are okay, but I completely understand your hesitation--I don't like to take meds while pg.
