My body has betrayed me! Grrrrr

I spent the evening in the OB for Contractions--AGAIN.

I'm so pissed at my body, I could just spit nails!

This time, my body was reacting to my lame-butt bladder, which has a minor infection.

I started antibiotics tonight, and it should be cleared up in a few days.

Only thing is....I hate hate hate antibiotics. Passionately. They always mess me up sooooo badly. They throw my entire system off. :-/ And since I'm pregnant, I can't NOT take them because the things I normally do to cure a bladder infection aren't "safe" during pregnancy. :-/

And I'll probably get the yeastie-beasties now, and of course, my hippy cures aren't "safe" for pregnancy, either.

Grrrrr.....I feel so betrayed by my body. :(

*sigh* at least the contractions stopped. And of course, in true Skittles fashion, she was 1) Fine and healthy and 2) Showing off her gymnastics via the heart rate monitor...she wouldn't hold still the whole 3.5 hours I was there! :) She knows her mama would worry sick if she where quite during a scare like this, so she's just taking care of me. <3 That's my girl!

Aww mama I sorry....I had a uti that caused contractions too when I was 6months ...they gave me an antibiotic shot in the bum that hurt like the Dickens!!!! Holy crap....did they give you a head start with a shot or iv antibiotics? ....the "yeastie-beasties" made me giggle Haha never heard it called that....I for one have never had them, but my MIL gets them ....she told me to drink lots of water and eat lots of yogurt....so when I'm put on antibiotics I drink a lot lot lot of water and eat like 3yogurts a day....Idk if that's what keeps it at bay but my MIL swears by it

Would it be safe to take an AC vinegar bath and then slather some EV coconut oil on your lady bits? That doesn't seem like it could hurt anything. Also apple juice has always helped me with bladder and kidney infections.

I'm going to do the vi gear bath for sure--but I forgot about the Ev coconut oil. I even still have some!

Normally, for the infection itself, I do doubles doses of cranberry juice taken at night, no sweets or carbs of any kind, TONS of garlic and onions and citrusy stuff to change the pH in my bladder, and TONS of water. Oh, and vinegar rinses to keep things balanced. It works like a charm, but I can't fathom taking a risk that it won't work when it's not just me counting in it working.

Then for yeastie-beasties, I just do an herbal supplement candida cleanse, which is a huge no-no suing pregnancy. :-/
