Basically she is weeing A LOT. This morning she has been 5 times and has been up for an hour and a half. Preschool mentioned she has been going a lot too. We went to the GP on Thursday and she doesn't have a uti. I have had her wee into a plastic cup so I can see how much is coming out each time and it's just dribbles. She has complained that her tummy has been hurting for a few days too.
Is it worth going back to the Drs again or could it just be an attention thing? Any ideas please, it's driving me and her bonkers.

Aw she's got a urinary tract infection and needs to go to the doctors now!

Very painful. She needs treatment.

Dr said it wasn't uti when we went, is it possible for it to take a while to show up on the test? I'm going to take her back next week as its just not normal the amount she's going.

Definitely sounds like a uti. I'd go back to the GP.

Does she drink a lot too? Surprised GP didn't test for diabetes too.

She doesn't drink a huge amount, I often have to remind her to have a drink.
The GP we saw was at a walk in clinic as I couldn't get an appointment that afternoon for her, I was convinced it was uti so went because I presumed they would give her antibiotics.
I'll go to our family GP on Monday and ask for another test.

Get a jar and catch her wee before you visit the walk in clinic again....I wouldn't bother with GP...not if you have to wait anyway.
