Scared of having/getting Kidney Infection:(
I'm so scared that I might have or will get a kidney infection , because of my recurring urine infection :(
I've had two back to back urine infections now, and it's making me very worried. My next OB appointment isn't til January 10th to do another urine test. I just finished antibiotics couple days ago now, and I'm still not seeing a difference with my pee'ing pattern again :(

Has anyone have had a kidney infection during your pregnancies? how was it treated? and did you end up delivering pre-term??

I had kidney stones with my son. I had to pass it myself as they couldn't do anything for me since I was pregnant. They did give me pain meds though (which I still don't think was a great idea) My son was stillborn.

I had an infection that wouldn't clear with ella. They finally just had me take an antibiotic daily until delivery. Mine didn't cause any symptoms tho. It was weird.

I never have had one while pregnant. I couldn't imagine. I was getting them fairly often for awhile and the pain would knock me down for days and I would stay on narcotics. I HOPE I don't get one OR YOU!

I had constant UTI's when pregnant with my oldest. Like every appt! At 28w I went to the ER with a fever and puking. Had a double kidney infection, e-coli, and a severe UTI. I was in the hospital on IV antibiotics for 5.5 days. And then put on a low dose of antibiotics until I had my son. He was born at 38w2d because I was induced for pre-e.

While pregnant with my second..I had NO UTI's, but still ended up with pre-e in my 38th week and had him healthy at 38w4d.

Load up on cranberry juice..real stuff NOT the cocktail stuff. Ask your OB/mw if its okay to take a cranberry pill also. Keep pushing fluids. And don't be scared if they do end up putting you on a low dose antibiotic until baby is born. UTI's are so common in pregnancy. Make sure you are staying clean down there. Get a peri bottle or flushable wipes(kids Kandoo wipes are cheap at Target vs the "feminine wipes") to use when going pee. Try to "air dry" a bit if you can, always after a shower. Breathable cotton undies, no tight clothing(jeans).

Have you tried going to a naturopath. There are herbs that are safe during pregnancy. I have to go get some for my digestion and gallbladder.

There is a vinegar/water solution that you can squirt down there once a day or every time you got potty (NOT douching, just a squirt on the outside). I think its 1TB vinegar to one quart of water. Then you should try to air dry after the bathroom. And sleep with no panties or pants on. And drink straight 100% cranberry juice often. That is all I know with how to prevent or treat bladder infections naturally. I hope the info helps some! I would be nervous too but it seems like others have btdt and it just seems to happen to some of us.
