UTI and a Friday night! What do I do!

I've been struggling today and I know I've got a UTI (had plenty in the past so I know what they are like for me).
Like an idiot I've left it today and thought I'd be ok, but it's now 7.30pm on a Friday night and I'm not! 😫
Do I call NHS 111 or do I call the maternity assessment unit? Just not sure who to contact given my GP surgery is now closed for the weekend.
I'm not sure and I don't want to leave it over the weekend as I go back to work on Monday and I can't call in sick after having the last 13 weeks off!

Do you have an out of hours hub in your area? Maybe call 111 and they'll be able to point you in the right direction of one xx

I got a prescription from an online doc for a UTI before. Otherwise out of hours, or if you want to test yourself see if the chemist has the pee sticks or order on amazon prime?

Thank you! Didn't want to bother the maternity unit if I didn't have to. Just spoken to 111 and they are getting an out of hours GP to give me a call πŸ‘πŸ»
Thank you ladies x

Hi midwife here! Don't leave it until Monday call 111 and get some antibiotics - you'll start to feel very grotty over the weekend otherwise! Are you ok otherwise?

Oh haha just seen you've sorted it! Fab! Lots of fluids x

Thank you @MrsFrankTurner I've just drunk a litre of water in about 45 minutes so it made it a bit easier to have a wee so I can take a sample with me when they want one.
Other than that I'm fine. Baby is wiggling around nicely and other than the UTI I feel good πŸ‘πŸ»
