So I went to my dr appointment today hoping for good news. They did all the routine stuff and found that the glucose levels in my pee were super high (even tho I have no problem with my blood sugar), my BP was higher than normal, i am starting to lose weight again, my cervix is soft and starting to dilate and the babys head is WAY down. I told them that I could feel a lot of pressure and some discomfort where her head was and suddenly i am being prescribed antibiotics for a "bladder infection". Now I have had several of these in my past, before i found out that an unknown latex allergy can cause them, and with every one there was pain when needing to pee, having to pee very often, fever, etc....none of which I have now. The discomfort i feel is exactly where he said her head was (which is lower down than the bladder). I recall my last appointment before having my first daughter that there was a trace of glucose, higher bp and loss of weight but the dr i have this time says its a bladder infection. I just don't get it. I seriously think I would be able to tell if that was what my problem was.
Just had to vent, feeling slightly annoyed
