I had gone to the bathroom Thursday night and had brownish color on the toilet paper. I was worried cause I spotted at 5 weeks already and I'm 11 weeks now....I waited it out and two hours later I went again, wiping first to see if it was spotting or not, it wasn't. Then I pee'd and it was brown. I was having yellowish discharge for a while, not a lot but some so the next day I called my health group and spoke to a lady about this and explained I had not been hurting and the brown urine had only happened once last night (I didn't notice the water being brown until second time) but that I also had discharge and I was a little worried about it cause that day it was pretty thick but that I knew for a fact I was not spotting cause I had checked.
She said she would speak to the nurse, comes back to phone, says they both think it may be a bladder infection and they're calling in amoxicillin for me and that I needed to go pee in a cup so they can test my urine. I did so that very day but I would have to wait all weekend to hear results cause they're closed. I finally called back wanting to talk to doctor, I was unsure about taking pills before the results. The doctor told me to go ahead and start the amoxicillin because if it is infection it could cause premature labor, which freaked me out so I've been taking it.
I called them yesterday and they said it was on doctors desk and they'd call me back. They never called me back....
I took more amoxicillin (1 pill every 8 hours to be exact) but I was getting annoyed, I wanted my results before I kept it up too much longer. I don't like taking medicine in the first place, and I really don't like it while I'm pregnant with my first child, despite the fact it is a "safe drug".
I called them again today and the receptionist tells me it came back negative. I ask if I can stop the amoxicillin now, she asks me if it was helping...
I told her my one time urine symptom and how I didn't have anything else but discharge that got thick and now it's better but that I was still having it, and she says "then yeah you can stop taking it"....
Am I wrong to be slightly annoyed that I am 11 weeks pregnant and taking pills for something I don't even have because the nurse and doctor both "thought" I might have a bladder infection...over the telephone? Grr!
