My Mood:
This morning at my Dr.s appt I had a sign of a bladder infection. After getting home within 2 hours my left kidney started hurting badly and I spiked a fever. I'm currently in the hospital and will be here few a few days. When pregnant there is a very real risk of the lungs filling up with fluid and being transferred to the ICU (Im currently in Labor and Delivery) when we got here both baby and my heartrate was very high in response to the fever. Her ans my heartrate have been stabilized (Though it took hours to achieve) and Ive been given meds for the pain, which also helps me relax. Please pray we caught it early enough it will not affect my lungs and heal quickly. Also that I wont end up in preterm labor in response, as with my history its a risk. (4 Premies) However right now everything looks very good in that area. I think my husband is quite nervous, please pray the Lord would calm his nerves. Also that the kids would have an easy time being with someone else for a few days. (Especially my 15 months old) Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

PS - Im 28 weeks pregnant

I had a similar experience - I went I to septic shock at 26 weeks due to MRSA in my ankle. Pm me if you'd like to talk.

Thoughts and prayers! Please keep us updated. I had a few pre term labor scares myself but nothing like your current situation. Feel better and try not to stress to much.

Re: Kidney Infection While Pregnant

I'm sorry for not updating. I ended up in the hospital for one week, and then going home. Amazingly, I didn't go into preterm labor from the kidney infection, which was great with my history. It took a bit to get back on my feet. Once I did I ended up with preterm labor anyways, but not as early so yay! I've got 3 weeks on bedrest till 36 weeks and Lord willing this pregnancy we will have made it through a kidney infection, positive ffn test, contractions, bedrest and Lord willing, still have a take home baby. I'm hopeful!
