UTI and pregnancy

I know this probably sounds weird but I've heard that getting a UTI could be a possible sign of pregnancy. I know thats not always the case but I think I might be. Has a UTI ever been a sign for anyone?

  • well i dont know about a "sign of pregnancy" but I never had a UTI until I was pregnant. I was in my last trimester before I got one though. It's very comman for pregnant women to develop UTI's during pregnancy and after birth.

  • I've never had a UTI, but I do know that the first yeast infection I ever got was during my 3rd pregnancy and the dr said that was very common (yeast infections during pregnancy)

  • Nope. It was the other way around for me; I was told after my first appointment with my first pregnancy that I had a UTI, and I would never have known if it weren't for having gone to the doctor. But I've had several over the years, and that's the only one while pregnant.

  • Yes, speaking for myself I have had a UTI at the very beginning of both my pregnancies and had more during the course of them. My midwife says it is common,
