I'm 16 weeks pregnant and keep getting bladder infections. The first one at 10 weeks was found out after a routine sample was sent off by my midwife. No other symptoms besides feeling nauseous and peeing a lot which is why it went undetected for a while. The second one was at 14 weeks when I asked for it to be checked as I was still feeling nauseous and felt like I needed to pee 5 minutes after I'd just been and slightly stinging after going. The same thing has been happening the last few days so went to Dr's this morning and I've been given antibiotics again so this will be the 3rd time in 6 weeks. I have been drinking lots of water like at least a pint every hour. The antibiotics I feel do work because I feel much better once they have kicked in and the symptoms seem to go away. The Dr will be sending off a sample to the hospital. I would like to hear if anyone has had this happen with them and what was found out or how they were treated for the infection. The antibiotics I'm on are amoxicillin 500mg 3 times a day for 7 days.
