    I've probably drank a gallon of cranberry juice or more, and other juice.. in the past few weeks (been craving it) - and the past couple days I've had cloudy urine? I have't had sex, and it doesn't feel like a UTI - anybody else? I see the doctor on the 21st - should I express concern?

    I'd say mention it if it continues. I had cloudy urine the other day but chalked it up to not having drunk enough water - so I upped my water intake and it cleared up. *shrugs*

    when i first had a UTI (way back before i was pregnant) the doctor told me the best to see if it is an infection is to see if the wee is cloudy, if it is then there is a good chance it is an infection. If you don’t have any signs for it though just keep drinking plenty of water and mention it at your next midwife appointment, they check you for UTIs anyway. If you have no other discomfort or anything i wouldn't worry about it.

    My pee was cloudy at my last MW app but it was fine. Was just a case of the dreaded CM getting in the sample again :blush: Having said that, definitely mention it at your next appointment. They probably will ask for a urine sample anyway, won't they? Good luck xxx

    I had thrush a few weeks ago,thought I had cured it but have since been quite sore.
    The last few days my urine has been very cloudy and I rang the midwife this morning to get doctor to give me another prescription for Canesten and she said the cloudy urine was almost certainly from the thrush (which you can have with few symptoms).
    She did say to bring a urine sample in to her to double check though for other things.

    yeah I have a history of getting UTI's so I know what it feels like and I don't have any of the symptoms but everyday my pee is cloudy. I mentioned it to my doctor and she said that my urine is tested everytime and comes up clean so I should be fine. On my chart it does mention that my urine is cloudy in appearance but clear of all anomalies
