  • I was hospitalized due to a urinary tract infection when I was pregnant with my daughter. I did not know that I had an infection. I honestly thought that I had come down with the flu. Within 6 hours I went from just feeling pregnancy pains (or what I thought was pregnancy pains) to being sick as a dog. I was running a temp,shaking, nauseous and my back was killing me. I was dehydrated and went straight to the doctor, they sent me straight to the hospital where I stayed for 4 days.

  • I really don't remember it has been six years ago. Lets see, I got out of the hospital on Valentine's day, she was born in late April, soooo I was about seven months along.

    I had to drink potassium (I think thats what it was) and it was nasty!! And I had to get some kind antibiotics through my i.v. and it burned like crazy. I actually now have a vein that was always smooth until that antibiotic burned it and ever since it has kind of stuck out. You know what I mean?

  • Please talk to your Doctor about testing you for a urinary tract infection. And if you test positive for a UTI your doctor can find the safest treatment of getting rid of the UTI while your pregnant with your baby. I found out I had a UTI at the same time I found out I was in very early stages of pregnancy at the Doctors. And then I miscarried at home a day later.
