  • Sounds like a UTI. I'd put money on it. It's not that serious, it's really common in pregnancy, but you will want to treat it. You can start with tons of fluids (a gallon of water a day!) and cranberry juice.

  • Get that taken care of ASAP! If not treated, it can be dangerous for you and your baby (kidney infections)

  • It's probably a UTI as Ati_13 said; I'm glad that you are going to see a doc, you can get medication and you won't have to be uncomfortable, that gotta go feeling, w/burn is awful! Sorry, I hope you feel better fast!

  • It definitely sounds like a UTI to me as well. Your doctor should think about getting what is called a clean catch. They use a catheter to obtain the urine directly from your bladder.
