So I am now on round two of antibiotics. My GP figures that the bacteria was resistant to the Z.ithromax and now I'm on L.evaquin (which shouldn't be taken during pregnancy, or at least there hasn't been any conclusive research on the drug and pregnancy). I mentioned to my doctor that we are actively trying and that I'm just six days past ovulation so she wouldn't be able to check whether or not I'm pg. She wanted to take a urine sample, but I told her that I was on HCG injections so I didn't want to waste a false positive (I really didn't want my first positive EVER to be a fake one!).
My GP reminded me that since I've had this UTI for almost a month that she didn't want to waste time and that the benefits definitely outweigh the risks. She reminded me about kidney failure and she also didn't want me to be hospitalized while in Arizona.
I thought that it was pretty funny 'cos she was asking me if I felt different (meaning: did I feel pg?). Honestly, I wanted to sock her! Aside from wanting to eat lots of chocolate (which really isn't out of the ordinary for me!), nothing is different.
My biggest worry is that I will have an allergic reaction to these antibiotics. After my experience with the horrible reaction that I had to the medication for the pelvic abscess I am just petrified that I'm going to be sick again. I took the medication at 7pm and it's almost 8:30pm and I'm feeling okay (aside from a tiny bit of nausea).
Honestly, I am just SICK AND TIRED of my ladyparts not behaving! The UTI has given me some serious pelvic pain, not to mention the pain when I go to the bathroom. I'm almost scared to pee first thing in the morning 'cos I'm scared of the pain! I'm also so sick of having to drink bitter cranberry juice. I wasn't really a fan to begin with and now I'm forcing it down my throat at least twice a day. We were at a party on Saturday night and I had some mixed with some club soda and it didn't make it any better.
On a brighter note: we leave for Arizona on Saturday and I can't wait! I bought some new (non-winter) pyjamas and a couple of cute tops yesterday. I am so looking forward to wearing flip flops and shorts! The weather has been super around here and today it was well above freezing (14C to be exact!) and I really can't complain. The last time we headed to AZ for March Break we got absolutely hammered with snow. I think that I can count the times Mr. JB shoveled this past winter!
I need to get ready for bed. We stayed up to watch the O.scars last night and I'm exhausted! Please say a prayer that these new antibiotics don't make me sick!
