I’m so sorry you’re going through this worry! That was a really insensitive way for your doctor’s secretary to phrase that. I’m not a doctor, but from what I know, you are out of the danger zone for developmental problems as the result of a fever by 14 weeks, and it seems like the danger would come from a higher fever anyway – 102 or 103. So it seems like the odds are very good that everything is fine, but I’m sure it’s really scary. Fingers crossed anyway for great news tomorrow, and you’re in my prayers!

Aww this is awful for you to have to worry about. Take good care of yourself and stay positive. Don’t let the nurses insensitive comment get you down. You’ll go in and hear that wonderful heartbeat and feel silly you ever even worried 🙂

Hope you’re doing okay!

I had a bad UTI around 20w pregnant (it wouldn’t go away for a month). I was on three different antibiotics before it went away. Most of the UTI medications are safe for baby. Hopefully they’ve got you back to normal! 🙂

As an ER nurse (and former NICU nurse), I’m sorry about how insensitive your OB’s seceratary was.  A UTI can cause issues at any point during preganancy, so you should go to your OB.   Going to the ER won’t do much though.  Even if they try for a fetal heart rate, they ususally arent well trained and if they cant get it, it will stress you more.

I hope everything works out alright!

I just read that women in early pregnancy, up until like 24 weeks, have a greater chance at developing UTIs. I’m sorry this is happening to you. Hopefully your body can kick it with help from the meds. I’m sure baby is fine, sending positive thoughts your way!

I had a UTI and kidney infection around the same time in my pregnancy. My doctor gave me no reason to worry and everything was fine. I am a firm believer in not worrying until there is a definite reason to worry. I know its tough when you can’t feel the baby, but until there are reason to stress, stressing is only making you feel awful.

I had a UTI recently that had no real symptoms. I did have yeast infection symptoms though but that’s how the UTI was discovered. I agree with listening to your bodies 🙂
