Hello there,
UTIs are common in pregnancy because of changes in the urinary tract. The growing uterus can block the drainage of urine from the bladder, causing an infection. It is suggested to drink 6-8 glasses of water each day and avoid wearing tight-fitting undergarments. An untreated UTI can cause kidney infection. Kidney infections can lead to early labor and low birth weight. A urinalysis and urine culture will help in detecting if there is UTI.It can be easily treated with antibiotics which are safe during pregnancy. Seek the appointment of a doctor at the earliest. Keep me posted.
Best luck and take care!
