  • yes, they are common, I drank alot of cranberry juice with my first daughter, with my others not soo much they didn't like it so I just drank alot of water and made sure to pee if I needed to.

  • Very common because you have a lot more discharge usually with pregnancy than normal. Also your whole flora is off too. Drink cranberry juice and water and stay hydrated becasue it can cause preterm labor. Usually if you have one they will put you on macrobid since it is one of the safest antibiotics during pregnancy. Good luck.
