I have been to the hospital for this same thing (on Sept 24Th). They did all the test and said that it's not an infection in my bladder or kidneys. BUT, my right kidney was inflamed, confirmed from an ultrasound. They also said there is nothing we can do but see if it's a kidney stone or maybe if baby is just laying on it and blocking drainage. They gave me percs for extreme pain (I asked many doctors the risk and if it was okay, me and my DH decided on this together) and nausea meds. Told me to get lots of rest and if it gets worse come back and we will have to drain it.
Problem is...I am peeing blood clots, fairly large (half the size of a grain of rice). My urine is a cloudy dark red. I have made sure it's not vaginal bleeding, there is none. It's not painful to pee this time...and my kidneys do not hurt (any more than usual) but I am cramping on my right lower abdomen like a period cramp on one side. I'm sick of going to the doctor and them telling me the same thing. "We can't really do anything until baby comes". I take cranberry pills (drink cranberry juice), fiber, vitamin c and prenatals but no other medications. I eat a healthy diet. I don't know what else to do!! Has any one else gone threw this? What did you do that I'm not doing?
I don't want to go to the hospital or doctors, it is to much money and we are already swimming in medical bills (baby and my health is worth it though). However, I don't feel like it's even close to that point. I'm just frustrated how many urine/blood/ultra sound test do I have to do before someone tells me whats going on?! :((((((( GAH.
I'm 30 weeks and 5 days.
Edit: I have also been to the doctor multiple times. Same thing no sign of infection, but visible blood. Every time before that has been painful while urinating. They have given me antibiotics to treat it and there was little change. They said they won't give me anymore antibiotics because obviously my body is not responding to them. I hadn't had any sign of this coming and all of a sudden today this is the most amount of blood I've seen ever. My right kidney has a dull pain on and off threw out the week, but I figured it was gas? because it came and went so fast at random times.
