I was put into labor due to a uti that ended up with a kidney infection. I had so many uti when I was pregnant that I was in and out of the hospital. All I can suggest is that you get some cranberry juice or done azo which works pretty good.
Also..drinks tons of water to help flush your system

1 mom liked this

call the doctor at 8:oo sharp or whenever they open and get in ASAP. He will take a urine sample and prescribe Bactrum and give u an orange pill that will make your urine orange but take away the burn. It will work immediately.  I got 2 UTI's when pregnant. They are very common but no fun at all. Get your prescription filled immediately and take your first pill as soon as you can!!!!!!!!! So sorry you are miserable

OR go to a walgreens & get AZO now!

urgicare will prob open same time as your doctor....call answering service to see what time they open. its up to you if you can stand it for 2 more hours. you can send your hubby to drug store for AZO and cranberry juice.  you're not peeing blood are you?

Bactrum isn't safe in pregnancy. I had it from urgent care for a sinus infection (I'm allergic to EVERYTHING so not many choices) and my OB told me to stop it immediately

Try chugging some water between now & the dr. Try ibuprofen for the pain... I'd be going into urgent care or calling my dr as soon as I could! Good luck :)
