UTI question****Update in blue!!!!!!! this is important!

I am not sure what to do at this point. What I thought could be bad morning sickness could be an uti. I had actually made a morning sickness post in another group and one girl was talking about an uti with her. But with the hell I have been throughin the last 2 weeks, I thought, "well maybe" .I rarely ever get them. I think once or twice when I was a kid. I am about 8weeks along. Reason why I am asking before I go to the er or call my dr. because I have horrible insurance that doesnt pay for er trips and doesnt pay for my much of my pregnancy. (I had thought we dropped this insurance, but I misunderstood-its neither her or there at the moment) anyway, so before I go to the er or call my dr in the am and spend money I wanted some advice from girls who have experience with uti's...

So here's whats going on:

Urge to pee, but not a lot comes out-not emptying the bladder.

There is a slightly different smell in the urine and it looks differently than normal

I have had this lower back pain/ache for over a week-now it comes and goes

Slightly elivated temp.

Nausea

Constant vomiting

After peeing on sunday, I wiped and saw a weird color red -not sure if it was from the urine or discharge

*no burning or pain sensation when urinating

*I had slight cramps, but not enough to raise red flags

******UPDATE!!!: so before dh even made it home last night, I decided to call the nurse. She said her gut feeling was that I was dehydrated. I explained to her my concern about going into the er and all that. She suggested I start drinking water-even if I vomit. I promised if things weren't better by today I would in fact go straight to the er. So dh got home and brought me cranberry juice. I mixed it with water and ice and drank half before i had to throw up. After that I kept drinking. Woke up today, feeling alright, so I kept drinking. I felt the need to not eat anything until after lunch time-Idk, I just imagined the water going through my body and it needing it. I tell you what! Back pain-gone!, Nausea-Gone!, Vomiting-Gone!, Fever-Gone!, My urine flowed and was nice and clear! For the first time in 2 weeks I got to clean my home, do laundry and dishes, take my kids out!

Sounds like just normal pregnancy symptoms to me. Especially since you are only 8 weeks. Is this your first pregnancy?

Drink plenty of water and see if it goes away stay away from beverages that make you pee more pften like tea and soda

 All pregnancys are different when I was pregnant with my first two it was a piece of cake! when I go got pregnant again it was hell I was constantly making extra appointments and running into the ER with wierd symptoms half the time they claimed I was dehydrated (how I have no idea) but said I needed MORE water and also so take it easy. I was still working full time so I cut back on hours and of course drank more water. That whole pregnancy was hell lol. I am pregnant for the last time now and the first three months were hell again as well. Now at almost 5 months I dont even feel pregnant. lol.

Take some cranberry pills in the mean time and drink plenty or cranberry juice and make sure you get the real deal and not just cranberry flavored!

oh when it happend on saunday, i just assumed it was with discharge...and thinking about it now, I thought perhaps because it was only the first wipe, I could of been blood mixed in with the urine. the good news is that it hasn't happend since.

I think you point something out, i need to load on the water... I havent drank much water because i keep throwing it up.. 

and your right, all pregnancies are different! my first was horrid, i was in the hospital a few times for dehydration. i was sick 24/7 for 12 weeks. my other 2 pregnancies were a breeze!
