Bladder infection! Another question, see last post...

Ugh.. I want to just melt away. I either have a uti, or a bladder infection. I'm leaning toward the latter because I have had a backache all day. I'm a few days short of 12 weeks along. Does anyone know if I can take that AZO standard? It's a miracle worker when I'm not pg.. but I don't know if it's off limits! Where can I look online?

Oh thanks so much for an answer... my post made it to page three and I thought it was all over. In the meantime I ran to the store and bought some cranberry juice. I'm chuggin it... I was looking up info on Phenazopyridine online, and I couldn't really find a whole lot.. Any other mamas who have BTDT?

those utis or bladder infections are awful.Hope you feel better soon.
I remember getting one right after my early 8 week m/c-it was pure agony to pee! The Azo was great before I got in to the obs.Not sure if ok in pg though.Cranberry juice sounds like a winning solution until you find out for sure if Azo IS OK.

Get Nature's Way Cranberry capsules. They have regular ones in the green bottle, and then another one with extra vitamin C in it. Both work great! Much better for me than the juice!

ETA, yes if you are having back pain it has gone into your kidneys. That can put you into preterm labor. I had this happen when pg and the antibiotics didn't work...ended up in the hospital for IV antibiotics! Drink a glass of water every hour and take the cranberry capsules and if you don't feel better call the doctor!

I would talk to your dr or midwife. I had a nasty bladder infection when i was around 10 wks this pg. My midwife put me on 5,000mg of vit c, cranberry capsules and acidolpholus (sp?) We caught it too late so I actually wound up going on antibiotics but you may want to try the regimine she suggested for me? Also, with the cranberry juice, make sure it's pure cranberry juice with NO SUGAR! The bacteria lives off of the sugar and can make your infection worse. Hope you feel better soon!

Yeah, with a backache you should go see your care provider ASAP.

I agree that you should see your doctor mama, since a regular bladder infection won't give you back pain but when it's going up to your kidneys it will. I have BTDT quite a few times.

Unfortunately when that's the case, I think antibiotics are your only option.

Well I went today. My OB was unavailable, so I went to my primary care.. blood in the urine.. ick. I haven't had any back pain today, and she started me on antibiotics. I guess I'll hear about the labs in the next day or two. It freaks me out hearing about blood in my urine... That's not a bad pregnancy omen is it? Anyone?
