Painful UTI

Hello smile

I woke up in agony yesterday and visited the doctor who said my urine showed signs of infection.

I've been taking antibiotics for 24 hours and some paracetamol and the pain has pretty much subsided. I can't help but worry about the pain though because it is quite intense sometimes.

Has anyone had a painful uti before? I'm 21 weeks

Yes, I did twice and again about a week after baby was born. Antibiotics and paracetamol were all I had too and drank plenty of water. Agony, you'll feel better in a couple of days

Thank you Dollyemi! I didn't realise it would hurt so much and it really worried me for a while. Hope you're feeling better now!

I had one at 34 weeks and it was horrible, ended up laying over my birthing ball with a hot water bottle on my back. Not nice at all. I had two more water infections before and after my due date but no pain that time
