No wonder my back has been hurting so bad! Anyway, my midwife told me to make sure to treat it because UTIs can cause premature labor. I bought a gallon of cranberry juice and cranberry pills (2000 mg of cranberries, 200 of Vitamin C a day). Any other ideas for treatment besides lots of water?

Stay away from all sugars...if the cranberry juice you got has sugar in it I'd skip it. Probiotics. Keep a close eye on things...it's the kind of thing that if it's bad enough it's better to take antibiotics than get a kidney infection. If you see any blood I'd go in to a doc immediately.

No, I haven't seen any blood. There was some on the pee stick but I haven't noticed any.<br><br>
I'm wondering--there was protein in my urine. I hadn't eaten anything yesterday though when I saw my midwife (at 3 in the afternoon, yeah, I know) so I'm wondering if the protein couldn't be a sign of ketosis instead of uti?
