I am! I have a Kidney infection, not fun! Went to hopsital yesterday morning with horrendous side pain and wanting to pee all the time, I had a feeling it was just an infection, but I have heard horror stories of people with infections and it harming the baby. The doctors and I are pretty convinced it's going t be fine but there's still that horrible feeling sitting there that something might go wrong? Anyone else going through this or have done in previous pregnancies? This is my first ever kidney infection. Thanks in advance

I had a vaginal wall infection at 18 weeks. After a course of antibiotics and plenty of rest i was feeling fine and it hasnt happened again. the doctors told me that these kind of infections can lead to premature labour if they get really bad. Just listen to the doctors and take the medication they give you.

I have had a bad UTI early in my pregnancy and because of the anti-biotics (as usual for me) I ended up getting a yeast infection.

I was actually worried I had another. I ended up finding out that my body over produces while blood cells while I'm pregnant and my body dispels them by use of my vagina. So it ended up freaking me out needless to say. But dr. told me it was perfectly fine and I had nothing to worry about. Just some information to pass along to my fellow mommies.

First of all UTI's and Kidney infections are Horrible-pregnant or not! I had a bad UTI when I was about 11wks. The doctor gave me a prescription to clear up the infection that was safe during pregnancy. I honestly don't recall what it was, but it was a freaking life saver. Drink lots of water and cranberry juice. Soaking in the bath without any soap can help to ease discomfort as well. These types of infections are fairly common in pregnancy. As long as you drink lots of water and communicate with your doctor you should be fine as well as baby. I'm 23wks now and my unborn son is healthy as can be. Good Luck

I had a kidney infection to, at 16 weeks. I was peeing constantly, and I had a lot of pressure in my lower abdomen, and chalked it up to being the pregnancy. Like, no duh I'm peeing all the time! I'm pregnant! But then when the pain started, they said it wasa kidney infection. I did a seven day regiment of Macrobid, which is safe during pregnancy and is specifically for kidney infections. I drank a lot of water and cranberry juice, and used AZO to ease the discomfort. Make sure you wear a pad tho, cause even moving too fast will cause leakage with that stuff! Everything is fine, my baby girl is progressing normally...just stay healthy and keep in touch with your doctor.
