No one has really asked but I am going to give you an update on the pregnancy. At my last appointment, my infection was still there. It is a very resistant UTI. After three courses of one drug, they gave me another which was the only drug that can kill this bacteria besides the one I took three courses of. I dont know if it worked or not, I wont find out until my appointment this week.

They put me on suppressant therapy. They put me on this one drug that will keep this infection at bay until I have the baby. Because this infection is so bad and continues to come back (OR WONT DIE) they are worried about it attacking my kidneys because I have a history of very severe kidney infections. If it attacks my kidneys there is a good chance they will not be able to kill it and save the baby. My life is at risk and so is Squishys...but taking this drug puts the baby at risk for birth defects.

My doctor consulted with 4 other doctors to decide this...she is very resistant to doing this, but as she put it, her number one priority is me.

I feel like I am choosing between myself and my baby and my baby is losing.

:( That's so tough. Have they suggested you do anything special to bolster your immune system or checked to see if you might have anything else going on compromising your system (yeast?). :/ Rampant infections are crazy.

They have me taking extra vitamin C as well (and I have been since this infection popped up) cranberry pills, flushing my system with tons of water. Nothing is really helping. They have not found anything else that is compromising me, just this very resistant bacteria.

:/ Good grief. It's so scary that all the "minor" illnesses we've had are developing more and more resistant strains, the same is happening with yeast infections :(.

Your life seems really interesting, would you mind if I add you?

Sorry to hear about your infection!
