  • I had a UTI my first pregnancy and I had one this pregnancy as well. I haven't had a miscarriage though.
    But I wouldn't start worrying until something bad happens.

  • I agree. I would call your doctor if for no other reason than to assuage your fears.

  • A history of frequent UTIs can put you at risk for premature labor, which is one of the reasons they keep such a close watch on urine at each appointment. I'm not sure whether that risk also extends to miscarriages. You should definitely call the doctor for an appointment, even if your first prenatal appointment isn't for a few weeks.

    On a positive note, though, a UTI definitely does not mean that you will have a miscarriage. I had a UTI early on with my first pregnancy, and everything turned out fine--completely healthy and full-term pregnancy and baby.

  • I never heard of any correlation between uti and miscarriage.

  • thank you all for your answers and advice. I have gone to the doctor but they didn't really tell me any thing. I did a due date calendar and it said that i was 5 weeks. The pregnancy test I took at the dr yesterday showed up negative so they sent me for a blood test and a urine culture.
