When I went for my appointment on Thursday the nurse (who is new btw) said I had some white blood cells in my urine. She asked if I had an UTI and I told her that it doesn't hurt to pee and that was all that was said. I'm pretty sure they didn't send the urine out for testing. And now I feel like a fool because my lower stomach and lower back hurt like crazy to the point of being unable to get comfortable while sitting or laying down.

Can you have a UTI or kidney infection without burning while peeing? Was I stupid for not asking more questions?

And now I need to wait until Monday to look into it further. I really do not want to spend $50 going to L&D for a pee test. Oh and if I do go Monday for the test it'll take a couple days for the results. I'm a dumb***. lol

Thank you for my beautiful siggy, *Kiliki*!Visit My Blog

I am not sure about the symptoms of a UTI, I think I have had one once in my life, but don't feel dumb! If anyone should have asked more questions it should have been the nurse! That's her job! I hope your back gets better and it turns out to be nothing!

Thank you MeganPixel for surprising me with this super cute siggy-you rock!

I had a UTI with my first pregnancy and had no idea until my Dr. called and told me. I think the longer it is allowed to progress, the more prominent the symptoms become.

Don't feel dumb though! Hindsight it always 20/20!

Thank you, Meganpixel, for my awesome siggy!

Yes you can. Typically at the very beginning of a UTI you have no symptoms but you will have White cells in your urine.

I'd call your ob back on Monday. In the meantime drink some 100% cranberry juice.
