I'm 20 weeks pregnant and think I have a UTI I've been

This answer was rated:

Hi I'm 20 weeks pregnant and think I have a UTI I've been trying to call my doctors all morning but it is constantly engaged and online it says there is no availability till Tuesday. What should i do?
Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?
Customer: No but I've had these symptoms for a week entially I thought it was just to do with my low blood pressure because I haven't had any pain just an odd sensation so I think I've probably had it for a while.
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I'm allergic to penicillin but that's it.

Plenty of fluids/water will help you. Cranberry juice also may help.

You may go to the accident and emergency and get a urine culture done. That will give the best antibiotic to treat the UTI and also substantiate the diagnosis.
