I think i may have a uti, as i know that being pregnant makes you want the toilet more, but nothing much comes out lol tmi, and i now have a dull ache in my groin, i have just started shaking too, can a uti cause that?
Not an expert, but I think so - a UTI can make you pretty ill, including fever and confusion so 'shaky' would sound right. If you haven't told your GP/MW yet I definitely would and eve if they are already aware, I would tell them about this new symptom ASAP.
It probably is a UTI but other things could cause shakes (and a UTI is serious anyway) so do get in touch.
i dont know who my midwife is as im shared care, i have a first app with a consultant on monday, but i may just go down to my docs today and ask if i can drop a sample off, as i doubt i will be able to get an app with them
Get to the GP, I ended up in hospital having IV antibiotics and paracetamol and my first real symptom apart from weeing alot which I put down to being pregnant was headache and shakes. I ended up really quite poorly as it spread to my kidney, I spent three nights in hospital and 2 under a critical care team.
I am fine now and baby is fine, but please get it checked ASAP.
Well i went to the docs yesterday... i have all the symtoms, including shakes etc, cloudy urine, nothing coming out when i go tmi lol, ache in my lower groin, the doc examined my stomach and it was painful at the part i had the ache... but whe she tested my sample there were no traces
She put me on anti biotics just to be sure but she is as confused as i am!
Oo just to say as well that uti's are strange things. They don't always show up in the dip stick test, and they won't always show up in the lab sample. This happened to me whilst I was pregnant, but as long as you are symptomatic of a uti then they will usually treat you for it . They too gave me antibiotics for my mystery uti. I am sure now you are being treated you will feel better very soon.
I had have this 3 times so far and I'm 12 + 4! Every time the dip stick shows blood in the urine but nothing else, and the lab results come back as normal. Twice I managed to get rid of the symptoms just by drinking loads of water (3 litres a day!) and I took Keflex once as well.
