  • OUCH! Big-Time Flare/ 5 months pregnant

    I've been in this flare now for 6 days. I tested neg last week for a uti. I had been in a state of semi-remission (pain wise) for the better part of the past two months. Since I'm 5 months pregnant I really haven't had a break in frequency department at all. As my sweet little angel continues to grow inside of me the constant need to pee is really getting ridiculous. I can only imagine what it's going to be like in that 9th month. I may be wearing depends by then just for conveinece. I sure wish I had a normal bladder. Overall my pregnancy is going well but my fickle IC bladder sure complicates things.

    Our Father, who art in heaven,
    Hallowed be thy Name.
    Thy kingdom come.
    Thy will be done,
    On earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our trespasses,
    As we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    But deliver us from evil.
    [For thine is the kingdom,
    and the power, and the glory,
    for ever and ever.]

    Hi Bekah, I've been wondering about you. It's been a while since you posted. I'm glad to hear your pregnancy is goin well. I'm sorry your bladder is giving youy fits. Mine is too. I have also had a decent remission fom pain lately. The Friday evening out of nowhere amajor flare stuck me and I've gone back into the old "dribble and burn'' routine peeing every 20-30 minutes. I hope we both get to feeling better quickly. Good luck with the pregnancy.
