Ok this is a little embarrasing, but I need some help. I'm 18.5 weeks and I feel like I'm having some symptoms of a UTI or possibly a yeast infection, but I'm just not sure if that's the case or if I should move my OB appt up to take a look. I just started feeling like this maybe last night, but definately today.
I'm feeling generally icky, but very dry (almost irritated) down south. Not itchy, just irritated. Oddly, I haven't had much discharge at all - barely any today. I'm having to pee more often than usual, no pain, but just this icky dry feeling. Like the paper will chafe me.
Could the lack of discharge signal some kind of hormone imbalance - I've never heard of having little discharge in the 2nd trimester.
Has anyone else had these symptoms?
I have an OB appt scheduled with my favorite doctor for Friday am, but I'm wondering if this can wait or if I should move it up (I would end up just having to see whoever at the practice - bummer)...
I would get checked for a Urinary Tract infection. I got a couple of those while pregnant with DS #1 and I felt really crappy like that. I also had the wierd dry feeling (down there) and had to pee quite a bit. I would call ASAP so they can put you on antibiotics. If it is a UTI it can cause contractions so OBs don't mess around with them!! I hope this info helps. If I were you I would lay down on your left side and drink LOTS of water until you can see a doctor!
