Pregnant women often times do not feel the symptoms of
a UTI (urinary tract infection) of
burning, urgency, and spasms. This leaves the bacteria free to spread, and it does, up the ureters and into the kidneys. This kidney infection is called pyelonephritis, and it WILL get your attention. The back pain is severe. Sometimes making it too painful to stand upright. Fever, chills, diziness, and waves of nausea soon follow. You cannot let an infection like this go unchecked.
