26 weeks preggers... I went to the ER b/c, of lower back pain!

I had to be monitored and have a cath for a ultrasound that ended up being Vaginal? DOes anyone know what the cath was for to begin with? IT hurt and just pissed me off really..

  • Possibly a "clean catch" to rule out a UTI

  • They needed your bladder completely empty for the ultrasound. They had to put a cath in me so they could make sure i didnt have a tubal pregnancy.
