Saturday evening I started spotting and cramping and it hasn't stopped yet! The spotting is sometimes light red, sometimes brown. Mostly when I wipe, sometimes a little in the toilet when I pee. Very little on the pantyliner. I'm mostly worried because of the cramping.

I called the dr yesterday and he told me that I had a bladder infection. What?!?! I had no idea! He said my urine culture tested positive for group B strep so they started me on antibiotics. I'm praying the spotting and cramping is from the uti. I have an ultrasound tomorrow at 9:30.

This pregnancy has been full of craziness so far. I really hope that means I'm blessed with an easy baby! lol

(((hugs))) that must be so stressful. I bet the spotting and cramping IS because of the uti and I hope it resolves quickly now that you're being treated. KUP!

Good luck tomorrow. I would think it's probably from the UTI.

Yikes!!! Sending big hugs your way. I bet those symptoms are from the UTI- they can make you miserable not pregnant and our pregnant bodies can be so touchy sometimes.

Oh, and side note: Cole is an incredibly easy baby but my pregnancy with him nearly undid me with all the complications

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!

I hope everything checks out ok tomorrow at your ultrasound i found this online...hope this reassures you until then. I know it can be stressful.

Bleeding during the first trimester is a fairly common occurrence. First trimester bleeding can be associated with sexual intercourse, infection of the urinary tract or pelvic cavity or implantation

Pregnant women most often notice bleeding when they are using the bathroom. It is hard to tell if the blood is coming from the vagina or the urinal tract. A urinary tract infection may be the cause of the bleeding and will need to be treated in order to prevent a worsening infection.
