UGH!

Last night as I was getting into my bed, I felt the urge to go to the bathroom, not an uncommon thing for a girl who drinks lots of water! Got back to bed and was almost asleep when that urge hit yet again. The urge continued for an hour....then I noticed there was some blood. That is NOT normal! and I was a little freaked out. By now I had spend about an hour and a half on the potty and it was 12:30, WAY past my bedtime. I was finally able to go to sleep and then I woke at 4:30-ish to go and it was bright red. I am probably giving you way more info than you want, but it freaked my freak! I called the doc's office and the receptionist said, "We don't have any openings until next week." And I said, "Well, I was hoping to come in today, since I AM PEEING BLOOD!" " Oh, can you come in an hour?"

I am on anti-biotics for 10 days. This is my first ever bladder infection/UTI. Yay, me. I am thirty something and I have never had one of these. I guess I have been really lucky! I guess I should be drinking more of this...

On a happier note, Candice over at I Have Run is having a great giveaway! Go check it out!

I used to get bladder infections OFTEN. It is so painful, I know. You poor thing. Drink lots and lots of water and cranberry juice, even though you know that's going to make you pee and that might hurt. I hope it gets better very fast.

Ugh sorry. When I started distance running I got a pretty bad UTI. Think lots of runners get them. So sorry and hope it is healing soon...

Meg Runs said...

SCARY! That's never happened to me when I've had a UTI, poor girl! I'm glad you go into see the doctor!

Glenn Jones said...

Even though a UTI is pretty common, it would still freak me out! Hope you're feeling better and the problem resolves with antibiotic.

Denise said...

Oh, UTIs and bladder infections are terrible. So uncomfortable. Hope you're feeling better!!

Julie said...

Welcome to my world! I'm sure you are feeling better by now from the antibiotics, but for future reference, keep some Uristat (it's a pill, can get it at any drug store over by the monistat) on hand to help with the discomfort/urgency until the meds kick in.

Marlene said...

Ugh, not fun. :( I'm glad you got into your doc quickly and hope you are all better SOON! UTIs are sooo uncomfortable.

Leslie said...

Uhg, NO fun! I had a string of them years ago, then 2 recently, 1 days before a big tri. The burning is what gets me the most, hope you got to avoid that since you didn't mention it. Good Luck and take all your meds!

Whoa, that's scary! Take care of yourself.

TX Runner Mom said...

I would totally freak out too! I've had one UTI in my life, and I hope and pray that I never have another. Hope you have a quick recovery!
