so i went to emerg because i was still spotting. everything seemed fine but in my urine sample they found a urinary infection. :s i don't know how my doctor didn't see it at my apointment at the beginning of the week. it must have been caught early cause im not in pain and it doesn't hurt when i pee. i was wondering if anyone has had this during pregnancy.

hey hon.... sorry you have and infection but dont be too worried about it. UTI's are more common during pregnancy because of changes in the urinary tract. The uterus sits directly on top of the bladder. As the uterus grows, its increased weight can block the drainage of urine from the bladder, causing an infection. so as much as it sucks its not uncommon and good news is its easily treated with antibiotics. good luck.. hope it gets better soon!

Hopefully. They did catch it early because I had no idea, I wasn't feeling any pain or anything so thats good. they have me on Novamoxin. They said its safe for pregnant women.

its good that they caught it early! you shouldn't have anything to worry about and Novamoxin is safe during pregnancy just make sure you take it according to your doctors directions. Im glad you weren't in any pain or anything, you got lucky lol.

When I went to have my pregnancy confirmed at 3 weeks 6 days they did a urine culture and after a week told me I had a UTI they put me on Macrobid which is a antibiotic that is safe to take in the first trimester and that was it. Also I had no pain either and was surprised when they said I had a UTI.

Well, I'm all healed up now and I don't have to take those pills any more :D now I'm just trying to be careful so it doesn't happen again.
