Sounds like you either have a Urinary Track Infection ("UTI") or a kidney infection. I had UTIs with my son, and I've also had 2 UTI's with this pregnancy, and I'm only 9wks. When you're pregnant it's SO important that you stay well hydrated and drink tons of water. UTIs can be detected by a urine test, so you probably need to call your OB and tell them your symptoms, and go in for them to check and see. They will give you an antibiotic to clear it up, but make sure you drink lots of water- even if you hate it! I loved water when PG w/ my son but I can't stand it w/ this pregnancy but I'm having to make myself drink it or else I get stuck with a UTI. Hope you feel better!
