I still have an infection!

I can't believe after a week of antibiotics I still have an infection. My doctor sent away my urine to the lab to get cultured and find out what's really going on before putting me on another antibiotic. I still have protein in my urine and now she said there is sugar as well. Sugar can be a sign of gestational diabetes but my doctor said an infection will mess with the test as well. I'm seeing an OB on Wednesday so my doctor wants to see what he has to say. I am feeling better though but tired lately.

I'm sorry you still have the infection but I'm glad you're feeling better. KUP on what the OB says. Hopefully you won't have GD. You don't need anything else to deal with.

Awww no fun. It's hard to recoup when you've got wee ones to care for. Healing vibes!

Hope you get better soon. Take it easy and drink lots of water and cranberry juice.
