  • i dont think it's ever "ok" to have one. if you have one in the third trimester it can cause early labor.

  • Yes having a UTI during pregnancy is OK if it can be ok at all.. KWIM.. Early treatment is key pregnant or not.. Pregnancy can increase your chances of having them, meaning it is common. You did the right thing.

  • UTI's are very common during pregnancy...the added pressure on your bladder can cause it to not empty completely causing infection. No infection is good while pregnant.. if a UTI is caught and treated then everything is fine.

  • It's normal, but it needs to be treated or it can cause pre-term labor.

  • UTI's can be common during pregnancy. As everything is unbalanced and hormones are going crazy, they can happen quite easily. However, there are specific medications that are safe during pregnancy that your OB can perscribe. Don't take just anything while you're pregnant, you really need to make sure it's a safe medication for pregnancy.
