Hi Ladies, I would just really like a bit of advice if anyone can help... Bit of background first, i had been having alot of menstrual type cramps for the last 2 weeks, lower back pain, loose stools - the wworks and on sunday i had what i thought were two real contractions within an hour, as they were completely different from any braxton hicks/tightenings that i had already. So I went to the fetal assessment unit to get checked over andd basically I was told it was just strong braxton hicks and that I had a bit of proteiin in my urine, so they said they would send the sample off to the lab and took my phone number and said they would 100% ring me if there was anything found in the urine and if they didnt ring me that it meant everything was ok. So i never heardd from them and thought everything was fine. So i went yesterday to my routine 35/36 week MW appointment and mentioned what they said at the hospital, she asked for a new urine sample as normal and said its full of protein today and asked if they rang me back. I told her they didnt so she rang the lab at the hospital herself and surprise surprise they said there was a "mixed growth" in the sample they got on sunday so my MW put it down to a kidney infection and got the doc to prescribe amoxicillen (sp?) for me to take for the next 5 days. So my quuestions are really regarding the Kidney infection - what if the anti-biotics don't clear the infection up - or what if they do but it comes back? Is this dangerous? And, I wanted to start taking EPO today but I was wondering if they are ok to take whilst on anti-biotic or whilst the kidney infection is still present? I would be so glad if annyone has any advice they can give me on this Sorry for the long post btw lol so thankyou if you got this far!
