typical pregnancy pains or bladder infection??

I am having really bad upper back pains (like a back ache only up higher than my usual back aches). And my belly has been cramping. I've had my share of utis and kidney infections in the past and for me it never burns to pee. (As odd as that is!). So, how do I know if it's just pregnancy related or more serious? I am going out of town tomorrow and I have a lot to do today to get ready so any advice would be appreciated!

  • If you have a history of UTIs you should go have a urine tested.

  • For me, my bladder infection felt like I was going into labor. I was in excruciating pain, felt contractions, and I even thought my water broke. I didn't have any burning, which was strange. I went into L&D because it was on the weekend, but I would call your DR. They can check it there, too.

  • I've been wondering the same thing too!! I've been having the symptoms, like I have to pee really really really bad, then I barely go at all. It's so hard to know what is "normal" while you're pregnant.
