Has anyone gotten a bladder infection in the early stages of pregnancy? I don't know if i'm pregnant or not but might be, had s_x during fertile time, but i bled and had cramps for a day last week. anyways, i've never in my life had a bladder infection before and i have developed one over the past few days, 3 or 4 days after the bleeding. anyone else get bladder infections and think they might be pregnant-is it a sign???

has anyone gotten a bladder infection when they first got pregnant and have never had one before? or just have gotten one while pregnant?

Why do you think you have a bladder infection? If it is just that you are peeing like crazy, why that's a common sign of pregnancy. The bled and cramps could have been implantation. If the peeing hurts, you need to see a doctor, and from now on make sure the b/f is clean (everywhere). Other common early signs of pregnancy are b___b changes, tired, smell and taste changes, gas, headache, backache, saliva, metallic taste. If you end up deciding it is pregnant that you are, and not infected, wait until you are overdue your period by a week before testing. Hope it all turns out well!

I know i have a bladder infection-I went to the doc today and they tested me for a uti and put me on medication but i don't know if i am pregnant yet or not. i just want to know if anyone else has gotten a bladder infection only to find out that it was caused by their pregnancy. thanks

Yes K, with both pregnancies! With first,i was at doc for uti when i was one day late, i explained to her i might be and she gave me the right med just in case, this time, i knew there was a chance and said well if i get a uti i'll know for sure (just being smart) and sure enough i got it when i was week late. still on med cos aint cleared properly. So, if youre hoping u r pregnant, then i hope u r too!! Keep us posted x

Aoibhe-thank you for answering!! had you ever had a bladder infection before? this is my first one so i am unsure why i got one, unless i am pregnant. but my periods have been so messed up lately due to a surgery that i have no idea when i should test?? thanks for the help tho

I did a little more research on this. Here is a good link ... http://womenshealth.about.com/cs/bladderhealth/a/UTI.htm ... As I read it, UTI is common in pregnancy. If it is latent at the time of conception, then changes in the chemistry of the urethra could bring it to the fore. Always happy to learn!

Hi 'K' When i was preanant i was asked for a wee sample to test as they said that you are more likely to have/catch a UTI if you are pregnant! (Dont take this as a 'symptom' though, i didnt have one when i was pregnant, but did have one when i wasnt preggers!!) Good luck xx
