Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I dont believe a kidney infection can harm your baby. ALot of women have kidney stones while pregnant and it doesnt harm them. You should be ok
You probably have a UTI, there are actually over the counter tests for checking to see if you have a UTI. I wouldn't stress too much, drink alot of water, cranberry juice. They will give you a pregnancy safe (you did tell them you were pregnant right?) antibiotic and it'll be gone soon. Just think, you are doing everything you can do and you'll feel alot better next week. And this too shall pass.
Thank You girls i'm really doing my best because i don't like water or cranberry juice, but i will see my Ob tomorrow and he will probably give me some antibiotics. Now i'm more relaxed!
Amy, you can also try blueberry juice.  It's yummy!
Is it good for UTI as cranberry juice?
