Anyone else getting infections and sick constantly? (TMI) (vent)

I seriously can't get a break! At the beginning I had a yeast infection and a bacterial for weeks. After popping pills up there for a week or two it finally went away. Then I got a bladder infection (with little symptoms) that quickly turned into a uti. Each time the uti went away one would come back shortly after (had 5!!). Then in Nov I got whooping cough. December I got the stomach bug which led to sever dehydration and uti #4. Another uti after that one. And now a yeast infection!!! So glad my due date is in 2 weeks!!
Thanks for letting me vent.

Anyone else?

Pregnancy lowers your immune system making you more susceptible to things.  Hope you feel better soon!

I've had 2 UTI's this pregnancy! and I had almost no symptoms except frequent urination, helloooo how am I going to think that me peeing all the time means I have an infection, I'm pregnant, I thought it was just the baby making me go so much! Both times I went to the hospital thinking I was havin contractions and going into labor, but it was just cramping due to the UTI.

I was like that with my first pregnancy 11 years ago. I didn't take very good care of myself though. My second pregnancy 6 years ago I had 1 UTI. Now I'm pretty healthy and no sicknesses or infections, just tired as hell. Maybe you should eat a boat load of fruits and veggies and take supplements and drink lots of water (if you don't already). Good luck with all that, that must really blow to be sick your whole pregnancy :(

This happened to me with my last pregnancy
I had 3 bad colds
an infected spider bite (never had one before)
and mrsa...also never had it before

  1. I think your immune system is lower when you're pregnant..which makes NO sense...you'd think it would be up trying to protect you and baby but no

My dr said it's so that we make anti-bodies and give them to the baby so the baby is healthy.
