QUESTION

Hi,
I'm 30 weeks pregnant with a low lying placenta. I've had one previous birth at 35 weeks.

I've been having a lot of backache, low dull constant back pain. The baby is head down and my cervix is soft. I have a lot of pelvic pressure. It's really painful even to walk -- feels like I can barely close my legs and as if she's goin to just pop out.

QUESTION

The doctor wants me to to take Macrobid for a urinary tract infection but she wants me to start before the results even come back and that just stupid to me.

She said if I have one that I don't treat immediately it's more dangerous for the baby than antibiotics but I really don't want to take them especially since my only symptom is white blood cells in the urine.
