I am officially 7 weeks today. Woo! I am in serious need of a scan every day or two though… I need to see that little heartbeat to put my mind at ease. Six more days until the next scan!
On another note, I think I may have a UTI. Usually when I get a UTI I notice it, and about two hours later i’m in incredible pain and peeing blood. This is different. Once I pee and make sure I get every last drop out, I stand up and feel the stinging, immediate need to go again. I know I don’t have anything left, so I go lay or sit down and I can still feel the stinging for a little while. It’s not constant. It only happens every now and then, so I figured it might just be something to do with the progesterone or the frequent need to pee. Today I was feeling it more often, so I emailed the doctor to see what he thinks. It’s not causing me any pain and I’m not peeing blood, so I know it’s not to a dangerous place yet, if it is a UTI, but hopefully I can get in and get it checked out just to see. I’m hoping it’s just something pregnancy related though. I really don’t want to take any medication in my first trimester, even if it is considered safe. What do you ladies think? Anyone out there experienced this? Anyone had a UTI and gone on medication?
