I have a history of chronic UTIs and i read online that pregnant women are more susceptible to UTIs and that is making me nervous. I take a cranberry supplement everyday and so I looked up if I can take the supplement as pregnant and everything is saying no because they are not "regulated". I don't meet with my midwife for 2 more weeks and I don't know what to do!

Any tips?

I hope someone responds because I have a similar situation. Chronic UTIs are painful and disruptive. For me, they also fairly easily turn into kidney infections. I sometimes end up in the hospital due to them. People think, UTI, big deal... But they ARE! I really hope someone responds with tips and advice.

Cranberry juice is good if you're worried about the pills. Just make sure it's 100% juice and not a cocktail because the added sugar can make it worse. Drink lots of water, and it's kinda funny but what worked for me is I bought mesh panties like the ones they give you at the hospital

Weird, I also feel like the type of underwear I wear affects it. I think I need to go google this now!

I'm wondering if the growing pressure on my bladder is something and not a UTI. It just seems to change each week.

I noticed that you posted this a while ago. I'm curious what your midwife said? Did you find any help?
