So my ob just called. My labs came back and they called to tell me I have a UTI.
I haven't been feeling all the yucky stuff that goes along with the UTI so I am assuming it is not too bad. But, I do have a history of UTI's and had a pretty bad one when I m/c in October. They do say that a UTI can cause a m/c.
She is prescribing me Macrobid. Anybody heard of it? Anyhow, just one more thing to worry about!! I hope this isn't going to hurt the baby in any way!!
When I was pregnant with Matthew I had one UTI after another-and they gave me Macrobid. I have only had one so far this pregnancy. If they're not treated, or you wait until they get really bad they can cause a miscarriage or preterm labor. Try drinking cranberry juice. I asked my dr if it really helps and she told me that it makes the urine more acidic and the bacteria doesn't like acid so it flushes them out faster. Made me feel better in a matter of hours.
Macrobid is perfectly safe to take during pregnancy, it would be worse not to take it. I am a UTI expert, lol. I know when they are coming before it can be picked up through the urine cultures. And I'm almost positive I have one now, but they keep coming back telling me I don't. Cranberry juice does help, and during pregnancy is probably the best thing, but after baby, if they become an issue, you can look into taking a cranberry supplement, it does the same thing, in more concentrated form.
