I posted yesterday about how I was having some mild cramps, back pain and braxton hicks contractions. Well, they started getting worse so I decided to call my Dr. today. The nurse told me that I should not be having this kind of pain along with contractions at this point (I'm 17 weeks) and that she thinks it's a UTI. She told me that I have to come in first thing in the morning. This pain has been increasing since about Sunday. Is it safe to be waiting this long to be seen? What if I have a kidney infection? I have read that infection can cause preterm labor, which is making me nervous of course. Is this something that I should be super worried about, or is it safe to trust that it's not urgent since they are making me wait until the morning? Thank you!
