Hey ya'll  I had to go to the er last night because I was having severe cramps.  I am 7 dpo and the urine test came back negative.  Do you think I could still be pregnant because I thought it was too early to tell by urine.  they didnt want to do a blood test they said I didnt need it.  I'm very skeptic about taking the drugs they gave me for a uti if I am really pregnant.  Do you think I could be bc I have had bad back pain, nauseau, dizziness.

this is true. also, check out the link in my siggy, those women are very knowledgable about this stuff. if you think you are pregnant though, i would say dont take the drug. it is still early, the earliest i have seen in the ttc group is 10 dpo with a faint positive

If you aren't pg enough for it to show up on a pee test, chances are VERY good that you and baby aren't sharing a blood supply yet - which means the meds are safe to take.  Just get a week's worth of Dollar Store tests and test EVERY morning before you take your pills.  The SECOND you see a line, call the OB for different meds if the ones you have aren't safe for pg.  GL!

It could be to early to show up yet.  But since you was having severe cramps they didn't  wanna do a ultrasound maybe?

1. I would take the medication prescribed for a UTI. Both my dds have hereditary issues...oldest having two surgeries to correct her kidney/bladder issue. They take daily antibiotics...yearly VCUGs/Ultrasounds. UTIs left untreated can cause scarring of the kidneys. They can also cause an infection so bad to be hospitalized. Some think UTIs can be harmless and that is not the case.

2. If you feel there is a good chance you are pregnant...just take the antibiotics prescribed. Things like macrodantain and other drugs like Cepro are approved for those who are pregnant. I had UTIs all throughout both my pregnancies. I seem to have the most difficult time just during pregnancies. If unsure call your GYNO office and explain the situation to them...run the list of drugs prescribed to you to them...then have them pick the ones that are a must need to take.

3. I took a test with my second dd it was negative. I took another test just a few days later and it was positive.

A UTI can mimic pregnancy signs. Have had them before. Even if you are pregnant, it would be way to early, the drugs wouldnt even get to the baby. And you can take them while pregnant. If you dont want to take them, drink A LOT and i mean A LOT of water, drink some cranberry juice.
