I get chronic bladder infections (have a funny shaped bladder, and wen I pee, only half my urine comes out... Had a flow test that showed this)
When I get them, the only thing that sooths me is a warm bath. No bubbles, or scented products in the bath, jut warm water. If you had bacterial infection (bacterial vaginosis), you wouldn't be able to take a bath, As it could disrupt the ph of your vagina.
Also, this is my first pregnancy, so I don't know much about pregnancy and anti biotics.
But putting pregnancy aside, I stopped taking antibiotics for my bladder infections ( as I was getting then so often I was afraid all the antibiotics were hurting my immune system).. I started taking one tape spoon I "cream of tarter" , mixed it with water and drank it.
This cured my water infection everytime. I'm not sure if I would mess around with this during pregnancy though, I would probably stick to doctors orders for now.. Lol.
Baths are fine just dont use anything in the water. Only use it to soak and relax! No soap, shampoo, bubble bath any of that! When I had a UTI I would relax in the bath than get up and actually wash in the shower if that makes sense!
