    Hello :wave:

    The day before Christmas Eve I came down with a UTI, until getting pregnant I used to get them regularly, so I wasn't surprised it had calmed down after a few hours. Usually that's it..I drink lots to flush it away but it came back twice as bad on Christmas Eve and I had to go to the walk in center who prescribed me with Amoxicillin..so I'm currently taking that..then Christmas Day/Boxing day I caught a cold and this morning I woke up with a really swollen throat and have been feeling bad all day. When I took my tablet for the UTI I also took 2 Panadol tabs cause I felt so ill..is that going to have an effect on the baby? I didn't think about it at the time but now I'm worried!

    That's great, thanks :) I think I'm just being a bit of a worrier! I'm assuming Amoxicillin is okay cause that's what the doc gave me..It's not the usual stuff they give for UTIs and they were fully aware I was pregnant, was just worried the 2 together would be harmful.

    Hi, hope you are feeling better now :pray: I wouldnt worry, they know your pregnant. I was extremely worried at first with all the meds I was taking ( paracetamol, codeine, buscopan, cefalexin, rinatadene, lactulose and oxybutin - 32 tablets a day :shock: )) not to mention pile and canestan cream, i've been on them since october and will be till bubs is born and kidney stones are removed, :puke: baby has been fine all the way through (at least one of us has :angel: ) so those 2 meds will be ok :D

    thats great news :D so pleased your feeling better :dance: hope you find some bargains :pray:

    yup, I would rather go through labour 10 times over than what I have done already, at least thats a productive pain and you get something at the end of it inc it going away, kidney pain , when you get the attacks is a solid acute pain and can last (in my case anywhere between 3 hours and a wopping 18 :shock: )
