UTI question

I know that a handful of you have dealt with UTIs, so I'm looking for advice.

The last two weeks, some of the baby's movements have become agonizing. They make me yell out loud, and I refer to them as the baby biting me. He's head down, so the movements that make me yell out loud are all hand or head movements (not the big kicks). And, the tender part he's hitting seems to be about where my bladder might be.

Did any of you experience something similar as one of the signs of your UTI?

Re: UTI question

Yes! I am having this a lot, but... it turns out I don't have a UTI. The dipstick was positive on 3 occasions for WBCs and frank blood but the culture actually came back negative. No help from the doc what might be causing the pain other than "baby's position."

Re: UTI question

The UTI I just had was simply a miserable version of a regular UTI thanks to the additional pressure on the bladder making every sensation worse. I've had those stabbing-like pains but not with a UTI. I hope it gets better for you!! It sure isn't fun!
