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.

As long as you take care of it it won't affect baby as much as it will you. If you leave it untreated it can affect baby by causing you to go into early labor and cause your baby to have a lower birth weight. For you it can cause pain, bleeding, kidney infections ect. So best bet is to take care of it early and as quickly as possible.
With my first pregnancy I got UTI's ALOT. So I started taking cranberry pills and drinking lots of cranberry juice. It is full of nutrients and keeps your urinary tract running normally.
