so i just got back from the OB

shes sending me to a lab to do bloodwork which i have to do anytime by friday
but she checked me down there and did a pap test and said my UTI that i had before should and is most likely gone.

so the doctor told me its most likely a strain on my back from the growing baby. i asked her if its possible to be hurting like this so early in the pregnancy and she said yeah its normal. and she also said the tight pinchy feeling and pressure i get in my lower abdomen is from my uterus stretching.
so thats good news

thanks everyone for your help

Well I guess that that is good news. Hopefully it will go away soon. You are in your second trimester, this is when you are supposed to feel your best!

Do you know what she is checking your blood for Question

the strips they use NEVER work for me. i have had 2 UTI's and neither were caught by the strips. and the last one i ended up in the hospital for cramping and contractions. i think i might have another one too...
i am glad everything is ok for you!!!
