I'm 20 weeks, i was treated for my 2nd UTI a couple of weeks ago, and after checking the urine sample following treatment (cefalexin), it turned out the infection hasn't cleared up! I was taking it for 5 days, now the doctor has prescribed stronger dose of amoxicilin for 7 days (which i had taken for my 1st infection at 11 weeks). Starting to get worried that i may never get rid of this bloomin' thing! In which case i might be put on antibiotics for the remainder of pregnancy - did anyone take antibiotics for the whole pregnancy? I know it's safer than leaving it, which can lead to kidney infection, but i'd love to hear from women in a similar position. Thanks girls xx
