    I'm 35 weeks along and i've had my fair share of issues with this pregnancy, this is my second successful pregnancy. I was diagnosed Glucose Intolerant(but my sugars have been perfect with no changes in my diet), My blood pressure has been up and down throughout this pregnancy as has my weight (i am over weight so the doc isnt too concerned about any weight loss). My current issue which i feel needs addressing and i feel like i'm being ignored is this: Last Thursday i thought i had a UTI, by sunday night my urine production was way down, i had to pee all the time, but next to nothing came out, (this is TMI but important) My urine is very dark as well. I've been drinking 80+ ounces of water a day on top of milk, and some juice. I dont feel dehydration is the problem. I had issues in my first pregnancy with my kidneys (Hydronephrosis- pressure on the kidney blocking waste to my bladder). I'm in a lot of pain, through my lower abdomen up my right side into my right shoulder. I'm extremely frustrated with this, i called my doc after seeing them on tuesday and them saying nothing was wrong with no real exam being done, i was told to go to the ER/ L&D, i go, and i'm told to pee in a cup (which came back negative for UTI) then told to go home and call my OB. Has anyone had any symptoms like this? If so what was the Outcome? My hands are kind of tied as far as switching Docs because of my Ins. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated! I also dont live in an extremely hot/humid area either.

    I'm so sorry that you are going through this. Did you mention to your doc that you had Hydronephrosis with your first? If not, I would call and mention that. Do you have pain while urinating? If so, it may be bladder infection. Were you checked for that or just a UTI? I had a bladder infection that was horribly painful. My urine output decreased but I felt like I had to go all the time.

    Also, is there any swelling that you can see on your right side? Appendicitis (sp?)- swelling of the appendix - may also be a cause of your symptoms... If your pain continues, I would call the doc and request to be seen again.

    I know you said that switching docs isn't an option. Did you see an OB or a general practicioner? If you saw one, maybe consider seeing the other???

    I hope that everything is okay and you find a solution! Best wishes!

    Yes i did bring up repeatedly that i had that issue with my son. I was tested initially by my OB, then again in L&D. I'm going to call them again tomorrow. Whatever this is i dont want to let it fester, i totally forgot about appendcitis that would just be the icing on the cake for this pregnancy :) Thank you so much for replying!
