very well could be a uti, so long as you get it taken care of your baby will be fine, i got bacterial vaginosis when i was 18 weeks with my daughter (i went in because i was having bad cramps) and they gave me some antibiotics and i was just fine and now i have a pretty happy mostly healthy 10 month old girl (i say mostly because she has problems but its not caused by anything i did or had during my pregnancy, her doctor made a point to be sure i knew that lol)

just get it checked out, any time you are in doubt get it checked out, better safe then sorry

sorry im rambling im sleepy lol

i had a bladder infection in the beginning of my pregnancy, and my doctor gave me antibiotics too, really mild so there was no effect to the baby.
Go to your doctor and they wil explain your baby is fine, and the medication is perfectly fine to take while pregnant, i was worried too, but reassured it would be ok.

Water water water. Nothing but antibiotics will CURE it though, so DEFINITELY go to your doctor. Cranberry juice will help prevent it, along with A LOT of water. Don't go too long, then it could become more harmful to you and your baby. Good Luck!

I am not sure if you have a uti because you say it hurts AFTER you pee. Usually it hurts while you are peeing. I have had this before too....feeling a certain burning after peeing and it just drives you crazy. You can try using a flushable wet wipe or (baby wipe) or a TUX pad to get rid of this pain. Just use it every time you pee and see what happens. A doctor isn't necessary for this problem.

If it really is a UTI you can easily get some cranberry juice and it should go away. If you try drinking a few quarts before tomorrow, it might just clear up before you even have to take antibiotics: I know it sounds crazy, but sometimes it does go away on it's own without medication.

Always be sure you wipe from front to back when you use the bathroom.

i know that an untreated uti can cause preterm labor after 20 weeks. so since you're only 14 weeks i don't know if that means you're at risk for a miscarriage. definitely call your doctor as soon as possible, a uti can easily be treated with antibiotics.

if you do have a uti, cranberry juice will relieve the symptoms but it will not cure it. it also needs to be 100% cranberry juice (not cocktail) and no sugar added.

not nessesarly, every time ive had a uti it only hurts after i pee, it actualy releives the pain for me when i pee

and i phrased that wrong, there wont be any problems if you get it taken care of PROMPTLY if you leave it and it gets bad you could go into preterm labor/have a miscarrage, so you need to get it looked at sooner rather then later

yeah thats what i was told too from my doctor.
if i didnt get it treated it could result in premature birth.
and also that it does burn a little during the infection..however i didnt get that burny feeling when i had my bladder infection. I was surprised when i heard i had one.

just a question...are bladder infections and uti's the same thing?
it sounds like it is..

UTI is a urinary tract infection. It is similar/same as a bladder infection.
