many sympathies lynny. I've been through similar myself after DD was born and it isn't very nice is it? I'm sorry but I don't have any real advice except to drink loads of water to flush out the bugs and cranberry juice can help too. But you probably know that already.
I would go back to the docs to see if you possibly need a different type of antibiotic if you are still feeling pain passing urine. Sounds like the infection is still there.
When I got to my 4th lot of AB's the doc said she would refer me to a urologist if it didn't clear up but thankfully it didn't come to that.
I think the bladder gets very irritated by the effects of pregnancy and birth and with me it seemed to all settle down after a few months.
Hope you feel better soon.

lynny, have you given a sample for the doc to send to the lab? this will determine the specific antibiotic that you should be taking. penecillin is a universal ab, but this may not be the right one

get well soon

can I just add - make sure you get your urine checked after antibiotics aswell to ensure all cleared up (especially if having repeated antibiotics.)
