I would see your doc asap it sounds like a uti / kidney infection. Cranberry juice is good at helping to prevent a uti but won't help if you already have one. I had the same thing in my first pregnancy and doc said I was hours away from be admitted and induced at 30 weeks because I ignored it thinking it would go away. Had no idea it was a uti that had spread to my kidneys!! Thankfully the antibiotics fixed me!! Best wishes x

I've had a lot of kidney issues this pregnancy as well- It could very well be a UTI. Drink cranberry juice/take cranberry capsuls, stay away from sugars, and drink a ton of water to flush the bacteria out! If it doesn't help, antibiotics will get rid of the infection.
