So far this pregnancy I've had 2 UTI's (although they were sypmtomless) and now i think i have another - with symptoms! I have taken 2 different sets of antibiotics - first lot were penicillin based and made me feel awful - and turns out my Dad has recently has penicillin based antibiotics that brought him out in a rash - so we will both be avoiding them from now on!)
I drink plently including squash, cranberry juice, decaff tea - although i do have a couple cups of caffeinated tea in the morning.
Is there anything else i can do? Am i just unlucky?

Wiping front to back? Last time I was pregnant I got a couple after sex, not sure how!
Hope this will be your last xx

Who said you need to avoid the penicillins? Those are common side effects, not actually allergies.
You need to stop with the tea, caffeine dehydrates so its water water water that you need to drink. You need a microscopic analysis of your urine to see what bacteria you are growing, you aren't doing anything wrong, uti are common in pregnancy.

If you find the secret, let me know! I have had three so far! :o(
I have started drinking more as I know I wasn't drinking enough, lots of cranberry but it gives me heartburn lol. I also always test high for protein, lucozites and nitrates and have symptoms but not an infection in sight, not sure what that is about!
Hope you feel better soon x
