im pretty sure i have a uti because of frequent urination and the foul smell but i also think im pregnant on top of that and im having a hard time sorting out weither the symptoms im having are uti or pregnancy? i still have a week till i get a hpt. i've never had a uti before and this would be my first pregnancy also.. one symptom im questioning is my weight gain, the first place i gain weight is my thighs but my stomach has changed within like a little more than a week and i havent gained weight anywhere else, it started even before my hunger increased, its not hard as rock but its firm in areas especially below my belly button, i feel stretched out and fat now when i was flat before...uti or pregnant?

UTI's make it very painful to urinate. Sometimes you bleed a little out of your urethra when you pee with a UTI. Often, you cannot empty your bladder because it hurts so bad to pee. I am speaking from experience.
Also speaking from experience, it is a little too early (assuming that you think you just became pregnant within the last month) for you to be showing. Bloated, yes. Showing and having the hard baby tummy? Not likely. This early in a pregnancy, your uterus would not be peeking out from above the pubic bone, where it rests normally. True showing starts at around three to four months along on average, however if you are tiny (short and skinny), it may show earlier, if you are large (tall or heavyset) you may be up to term before you show (especially if you are heavily overweight). Bloating in early pregnancy is common and could be what you are experiencing, but unfortunately, the only way to know for sure is to be patient and test when you miss your period (or a few days before if it is an EPT).

Uti, or early pregnancy?
I am having spotted bleeding, I stopped my very normal period about 2 weeks ago, and now i'm spotting. I had done some research and no luck. I think it's safe to assume ither early pregnancy or Uti???? It doesn't hurt tho when i urinate, I am only experiencing minor cramping and blood after i wipe. I also have felt minor nausea and slight feeling of pressure on my tummy. I took a pregnancy test that came out negative but I feel it may still be too early to come up. I plan to make an appointment with an Obgyn tomorrow. I am a little freaked seeing I am only 24 and had never had any sort of std or pregnancy. Please any help would be greatly appreciated.
