V for Victory

What’s up with UTIs (besides being awful, of course)?

I really have nothing profound to say about this, except that I have one and it sucks. I’m pretty sure I got it from the doctor poking around in there during the Mock Embryo Transfer. I started feeling symptoms a day or two after the MET, but I dismissed it as my cervix being irritated by the iodine or something. I wish I had listened to myself. The symptoms have grown steadily worse in the week since and now my bits basically feel like this:

I’m attempting to drown myself in cranberry juice while I wait for the nurse to return my call. I’m hopeful they can prescribe something over the phone so I don’t have to go in to have them tell me what I already know. I’ve had plenty of these in my lifetime, honey; I know what’s up. And it is a lady garden on FIRE. Just gimmie the drugs (ok, antibiotics, but drugs sound sexier) already!

  1. I hate UTIs… Haven’t had one in a long time though. Drink plenty of Cranberry juice. They say to mix a tps of baking soda in 8 oz of water as it raises the PH level of the irritating and acidic urine during a UTI attack. Haven’t tried it and it sounds gross.

    • That does indeed sounds disgusting…but worth a shot! What’s the worst thing that could happen: it tastes bad and does nothing? I’m totally trying it tonight. Thanks for the tip!
