So yesterday, my FI’s best friend had a Christmas party. Loads of fun, I got pretty good (and rare!) buzz going, we got home at about 2 in the morning and then it got bad. The alcohol must’ve dehydrated me (along with the sodas I’ve been chugging instead of water for the last week) and we got a little…frisky… at the party. Well, as soon as I got home and layed down, I had to pee. I was literally up ALL night, got about 30 minutes of sleep at 5AM, and then couldn’t sleep again :/ I went to Urgent Care and found out I had a killer UTI. UGH. So I’ve basically been exhausted and felt like shit today. FI went back out at noon today (pretty much right after I got home with my meds) to go to F’in HOOTERS with a guy friend (who we just saw and hung out with last night) to watch the game. He left me to watch the girls, which thankfully his parents took our 3 year old shopping and our 20 month old napped with me, but I’m still pissy that he left even though he knew that I’m like, really broken. And exhausted. He finally got home at about 5ish. Grrr. Then he went to bed early because he’s TIRED. Leaving me again to watch the girls. That really isn’t the issue, I normally do the night time routine, but I NEED some rest and I’m not getting it, and I kept having to wake him up to watch the girls, so he’s like Mr. Insensitive Grinch.He’s normally really good at being like, Super Beast, but he must be PMSing or something.
Anyway, I’m just irratated, and in pain, and tired, and it’s totally been a Mr.Beast Fail today. And I’m pissed that I have a UTI.

That sucks! I had a UTI before and that is not fun. Honestly, I can be mean sometimes. But I would wake my FH up and wear him out. lol I don’t think it is fair that you had to watch your kids, and I don’t think it is fair that he went out when you are in pain. ***Hugs honey***

Eek, UTI! I hope you feel better soon. I’ve heard yogurt and unsweetened cranberry juice will kill that thing dead.

My SO is totally unsympathetic when it comes to UTI’s!!! REally drives me!! Hope your antibiotics kick in soon!

Aw bummer! I really hate UTI’s, but cranberry juice really does work! For like two days I’ll drink nothing but that and it’ll be gone, so much easier than going to the doctor every time

I would never wish a UTI on anyone. Good luck. Also Cystex works great from drug stores.

Thanks ladies 🙂 I’ve been chugging cranberry juice and water all day, which is like I’m torturing myself because it makes me pee so much more :/ Tomorrow it should stop hurting though I think. And he’s never had one, so you’re right, he just doesn’t have a clue. But now the kids are finally asleep, and I’m completely sleep deprived LOL so I’m going to crash out. Thanks again, it’s nice to have a place to rant and people who understand 🙂

Ugh, I had one two weeks ago that turned into a kidney infection. I was miserable. Honestly, I cried for like an hour because I couldn’t even sit down without having to go again and it hurt so bad.
I feel for you right now!

Ugh I get UTIs all. the. time. The thing that makes me feel better the most is lots and lots of water. The antibiotics will soon make you feel better but it sucks to feel like you have to pee constantly. To me, it makes me feel better mentally because I’m actually peeing. Lol, it sounds really silly but do it! And tell him all the bees said he should be taking better care of you.

I sooo feel for you. UTI’s completely drain me and thats without baby girls to take care of. I hate how guys are insensitive until they are sick. My husband has been sick all day and oh boy he needs everything brought to him. I hope you feel better soon.

uggghhhh. i had a UTI once and that was enough – i describe it as peeing splintered glass and unless you have experienced it you have no idea how the thought of having to pee can make you cry
hope you are better soon!

@Belle2Be: I’m going to be honest with you, the moment I saw B&M I was like…is this some new fetish!? lol Sorry he’s being a butt head. I hate how guys seem to think we are still super women when we are sick, but they are freaking babies when they get a cold!

Pyridium is the drug that stops the pain, and helps counteract the overactive urethra. It will however turn your urine a deep orange and can stain your clothes if you leak, so be sure to wear a pantyliner. I swear though, the stuff is gold.
As for your FI not helping, I hate to say it, but I’m not surprised. I have yet to meet a man who has suffered a true UTI and they really don’t understand what it’s like. It’s an infection, it gives you a fever, makes you nauseous, stomach cramping, the whole nine, but because they’ve never had one, they don’t know. Have you tried explaining it to him, or asking for his help?
Side note, hope your antibiotics kick in soon! My last one was a doozy. It came on fast and for the first time ever I was seriously nauseous. They had to switch my antibiotics a week later because it still hadn’t gone away. I hope this isn’t the case for you. Good luck and feel better!

Yes! And you can get it OTC now. My fave is a product called Uricalm, it has a higher dose of it than most of the other OTCs plus cranberry in it. And it’s cheaper.
