Pregnancy Pregnancy

22 weeks, horrendous bladder infection

So, I woke up at 3am on Thursday morning after spending Wednesday relatively crampy. But when I woke up, the cramps were INTENSE, front and back and Tylenol didn't touch them. I called my doc who had me come into labor and delivery. Turns out I have a bladder infection. It doesn't hurt to pee but OMG THE CRAMPING. And the pressure. I feel like I'm carrying a bowling ball covered in spikes. Has anyone else had a bladder infection at this stage? I'm on macrobid, anxiously awaiting relief. :(

I've only ever had one bladder infection and it was hell.  Hope it goes away fast!

Thanks ladies. Yes, it's rough. I've managed to almost forge there is a baby in there at times bc I'm so uncomfortable. Then my boy moves and everything is alright. :)

I know exactly what you're going through! I've had  a bladder and Kidney infection my whole pregnancy, I'm 21 weeks and 6 days today.  They found out my infection is resistant  to Macrobid...because this is my 6th round of antibiotics. So if this doesn't work go back in and have them culture your Urine to see what it's resistant   to. I told my doctor how bad the pain is ( you obviously know what I mean)  so my doctor gave me percect 5's. Which is fine to take as long as it's not long term. Good luck hun hope you get better! :) but know you're not alone.
