  • Try drinking lots of water and a glass of cranberry juice a day. I'm not sure why you're getting them so much but I got them a lot with my first pregnancy, more water and cranberry juice helped!

  • When you pee, and you think you're done, lean forward...this puts pressure on your bladder to make sure it's completely emptied. Cranberry juice works great too. I never got UIT's while pregnant, but I got a lot of them immediately after giving birth.

    Good luck with your pregnancy.

  • f you hate cranberry juice there are citrus flavoured effervescent powders you can get at the drug store - Here in Oz they are called citravexcent. They alkaline the urine and makes it not painful - but they don't take away the infection. Still not brilliant tasting but an alternative to cranberry.
    This may be TMI but are you taking care when wiping to go front to back? very important

  • You need to drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water a day. Get cranberry capsules, and take the maxium suggested dosage. Avoid caffeine, added sugar, spicey foods.
