  • Go to your OB to give a urine sample to rule out a UTI. If you can't get there today, go to urgent care. You can have one with no pain down there . .. . and it can send you into labor if not treated.

  • It means you should probably go see your doctor. How far along are you?

  • Yeah I would be making a visit to the doc. They need to rule out infection, premature labor, and preclampsia.

  • I agree with the other ladies. I had an infection while I was pregnant and it was only a simple yeast infection, but it sent me into pre-term labor at 35 weeks. Thankfully I went to the maternity ER and they were able to stop contractions and treat the infection. It sounds like you have a UTI that might be into your kidneys too, that would explain the back pain. Sorry! Hope you get feeling better.

  • If all this is going on then you should go to L&D to be checked out.
