  • 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.
