So I know one of our preggers at some point had a UTI while preggers, what antibiotic did they give you? I had one about a week and a half ago and tried some home treatments, didn't work so I started some antibiotics. Well.....I ended up stopping them after 3 days (I KNOW I KNOW, I'm a bad girl).
Any way it came back tonight-bad! But now I'm in the 2ww and I don't want to mess up something that could be happening, but I do need to treat it because I am peeing blood and blood clots at this point. (no fever or back pain or anything that makes me think its a kidney infection). So since here you can just go to the pharmacy and ask for the drug you want--- ----I just need to know what you took (since I know most of the doses for things).

I don't know either... but I had a really bad kidney infection and drinking water and cranberry juice was good. WHy don't you check with your midwife in Chicago??? I hope you get answers soon and get better soon so you can stress over the normal things in the 2 ww

Darn it....what the heck did they give me? I know I took Penicillin and Mitronidazol for the abcess tooth I had. I can't even remember but I know there are a couple that are safe for pregnancy (I had a UTI in the 1st trimester)

Angela, I have a history of two hospital admissions for pyelonephritis. So when I went to Europe, I was worried about having a UTI there that could get out of control. They told me no Cipro or LEvaquin, but gave me an Rx for Macrodantin. I got it filled but thankfully didn't need it. I hope you can get some macrodantin soon!

I've heard that macrodatin (sp?) is fine. That's what I always took for my UTIs, but I wasn't pregnant. You need to get on something before it does turn into a kidney infection. Besides, you must be miserable

Edited** Oops, you know what, I actually took MACROBID. I knew it was macro-something....

I'm in no pain at all because I travel with Pyridium (it the over the counter pill that makes your urine turn orange and numbs your bladder!!!!--it the best!) I haven't got access to cranberry juice here But I have been taking 8-12 cranberry pills for the last couple days (one of the other roadwives had them!) And I have been drinking---TONS of water. I did all that when I was just having some burning and frequency.....now the blood started----so time for antibiotic.
THANKS for all the replies....off to find some Macrodantin now!
