This afternoon my kidney has started hurting. It feels like I have a kidney infection but when the baby moves her limbs in the front of my belly I can feel pressure/pain in my kidney. Could it be the position that she's in or should I be worried? I went to the Ob today. They check urine for infections, right? I gave a sample.

I don't think they usually check for infection unless you mention symptoms of a UTI first... then they have you do a clean catch, which is a little more involved than just peeing in the cup. Usually the sample is just to check for proteins.

Kidney pain is nothing to mess around with. I'd call the OB ASAP and see what they want you to do. Better to test and it be nothing than not test and end up with a severe infection landing you in the hospital.

Ouch! I hope you feel better soon! I'd call too. Maybe you could just stop in for a test but no appointment.

Well the pain got better. I drank lots of water and I think at least part of the pain was from being constipated If the pain comes back I'm definitely calling!
Thanks for letting me know about the urine test, I always thought they checked it.

I had a kidney infection with my first child around the 15th week of my pregnancy. The doctor took a urine sample twice and nothing suspicious came up. I was told that it was probably my gallbladder and to eat healthier. Well, no. That wasn't it. A week or so later I ended up I the emergency room with unbearable pain. Once my urine was tested it was determined that I indeed had a kidney infection! I hope you are doing well and the pain has gone. However, if it continues, make sure it is taken care of.

Every time I've had a kidney infection it's accompanied with fever and chills. I'm glad you are feeling better
