... with a suspected UTI.

I think it started on Monday when we took our trip to the hospital to pick up a fresh supply of my meds. I was aware of the fact that I didn't want to be needing to pee all the way into Glasgow so I drank less than usual which seems to have had an adverse effect on me.

The problem is a sore lower back, needing to pee all the time, and feeling generally run down pretty much describes all my pregnancy symptoms so I sort of hesitated on whether or not it was worth going to the doctor. Yesterday I thought it was nothing to worry about, but this morning I asked Mr Click to make the call and he decided a trip to the doctor was worthwhile.

I'm glad he did.

To paint a wee picture (no pun intended), I filled up a sample bottle. Within ten minutes I needed to nip to the loo again. As well as ten minutes after that. About ten minutes after that we left to go to my appointment (five minutes up the road), by which point I abandoned the spousal unit to check me in so I could nip to the loo again. And then another ten minutes later (right when I was due to go in to see the doctor) I had to nip in again.

I've got a short dose of amoxicillin and we're waiting until Monday for my results to come back in case I need to take something stronger. I have a funny feeling this won't be the last time I'm getting a UTI during this pregnancy.

... After the Crash by Michel Bussi.

It's this month's book club book and I'm finding it to be one of those 'one more chapter books'. It's told in both the 'present day' (late nineties) and through a journal which one of the characters is reading. This means that inevitably a chapter ends and you have to wait until halfway through the next one or the one after it to pick up the strand of the story you've been reading so you just have to keep going.

I managed to read about one hundred pages straight off at the weekend though I've slowed down a little since then.

I'm also reading a Mother & Baby magazine, because why not? Mr Click picked it up for me today (I think to cheer me up after the UTI and antibiotic stuff). Our baby doesn't even have feet yet, but I'm going to be hot on tips to help them learn to walk when they get here.

What's keeping you occupied this week?


  1. Sorry you're sick. Get well soon :)

  2. Hope you feel better soon. I've been doing a lot of reading lately. Last one was Red Wolf by Jennifer Ashley.

  3. I'm staying busy trying to clear out things for I am flying to Scotland next week--seeing a friend in Edinburgh then off to Iona for a week--then another week of bumming around Skye and the Highlands. Prayers for you during the pregnancy, from your April A-Z post, I know you are ready!

  4. UTIs - ugh! You have my sympathy. Arrived with the menopause for me, though (touch wood) they've now departed again.

  5. UTI's are awful. I can't even imagine what it must feel like, while pregnant. YOu are a trooper <3

  6. @ClicksClan Hello Caitlin, just wanted to say hello (It's Tracy one of your Viking customers, you kindly gave me your blog details, so I could keep up with Dodger and the boys. I have tried to email you at Viking, but the email are not going through, so thought I would try and Tweet (never done this before), hope all is well with you

  7. We're trying to learn to walk!

    Ugh, UTIs. And then when you've had it and every time you need the loo you think you're having one again... I recommend lots of drinking cranberry juice (the most sour you can find!) every time you can feel one coming!


Let me know what you think. :-)
