  • yeah i got a uti twice and im 19 wks pregnant. No it wont hurt the baby as long as you take those antibiotics and listen to what the doctor says. Good luck! And don't worry!

  • It can if left untreated. Its an infection none the less that changes the vaginal fluids. Take the meds and you will be fine.

  • No it will not hurt the baby, unless you don't treat it. You will be fine - UTI's are common in pregnancy.

    From now on, make sure you are going pee when you feel like you have to, don't hold it. That is one of the main causes of UTI's (aside from sex)

  • Whole different tract, I wouldn't worry too much about it. If you let it get out of hand, then possibly.
