  • No. You need to make sure that you are drinking enough water; at least 8 8oz glasses a day. No caffeine, no acidic foods, no alcohol, no spicey foods. Take cranberry capsules. Urinate before and immediately after having sex.

  • I had one early in my pregnancy! I thought my constant pee'ing was from my baby being on my bladder, plus I didnt feel any discomfort, but I did have the urge to pee but couldnt, and I started spotting! I went to the ER and the receptionists told me it was a miscarriage. damn receptionists were way off. it was a really bad UTI (hence the bleeding). I got antibiotics and it went away within days! sorry I didnt answer your question lol. I would say UtI's are common, but it isnt good that you are getting them a lot. what is causing them to keep coming back, I'm not sure! I would ask your doctor! do you have a UTI now or are you just curious?

  • With my first 2 pregnancies, I had them every time I went in for my appts. I never felt anything, but I still had them. With this last pregnancy, I only had 1 in the beginning. I drank a whole lot water this time, so I think it flushed out my system, cutting down on the bacteria.
