Ok I'm 13 weeks and 4 days when I use the bathroom it seems like I don't fully empty my bladder then in like 5 mins I have to pee again I have push to get everything to come out. Could I have a urinary tract infection I am having some lower back discomfort and its going down to my butt to my thighs. Any advice .

  • Sounds like a urinary tract infection. You should get checked.

  • That sounds kind of normal for pregnancy... If your worried though, call your doc or go to an urgent care center.

  • I don't know about going to the ER for a UTI. Do you have a Minute Clinic or Target Clinic near you? They treat UTIs even if you are pregnant. Or call your OB. They WILL squeeze you in because UTIs can cause contractions if left alone.
