Unhappy Blood in urine...Any info will help

I am almost 36 weeks pregnant. Last night I didn't sleep well I had cramps in my lower abdomen and lower back. I went to the bathroom several times with the lights off so I didn't notice anything last night, this morning I went and noticed pinkish-reddish blood on the tissue and in the toilet. I called the doctor and they said it is normal. A friend of mine is a nurse and she told me to wipe before peeing then pee and wipe, I did and it was only bloody when I pee'd. I called the doctor back they told me to come in for a urinary anaylis. Well, they closed at 12 and I got there at 11:30 to take the test, they had to send off the urine so they told me to wait till Monday, I think this is wrong on their part! I called the nurse after hours and asked her to please call and check my results. She did and said I had a very high amount of blood in my urine and only trace amounts of bacteria which would mean infection if it were high, so nothing showed up explaining why so much blood was present they were going to run more tests and call me Monday. She said it could be kidney stones. It doesn't burn when I pee so that is the only thing she could think it would be. Can anyone offer any other info, I am in pain and suspense.

Re: Blood in urine...Any info will help

HI there

Get a second opinion. I lost my son at 36 weeks last year and had horrible cramps menstrual type, diarrea and blood in urine for 2 days before he stopped moving altogether. I am sure your situation is not as serious as mine however I would suggest to do what I wished I had done, get a second opinion immedietly, go to the ER or whatever it takes. If its nothing great but if its something then you'll be glad you went. My doc also told me it was normal even though I thought I was having contractions the pain was so severe and consistant. They told me to take a tylenol. I am pregnant again and at 18 weeks and so far so good. I am seeing a specialist and believe me I call about every little thing. They are never upset at my calls and always very helpful. Please for your own peace of mind and the possible health of your baby, go seek a 2nd opinion. Good luck I am sure you are fine and keep us posted!

Post Re: Blood in urine...Any info will help

Just wanted to update info. I went and had some x-rays and ultrasound done last week. They really couldn't tell me anything, little one was kinda in the way. They just said I had urine backed up in my right kidney and there was some kind of blockage probably a kidney stone, they don't like to do anything while being pregnant so if I can wait that would be better. They want to see me back 2 weeks after I have the baby. He has been moving really good and I am making sure to pay close attention. My doctor said she would induce at 38-38 1\2 weeks if I was still having pain. Wednesday night I went to the hospital having contractions every 3 minutes I was not progressing so they said I could go home just to come back if they started getting painful. They said if I did have kidney stones that could trigger contractions. I woke up the next morning still having contractions but not consistent. Now I am just having Braxton Hicks every so often. I think the blood in my urine has went away or at least I can't tell if it is there. Over the weekend he moved to my left side for a few hours and since then I haven't had any pain. I don't know what happened. So now I am trying to decide if I want to wait or just be induced. I go back to the doctor Wednesday. I'll try and repost then. Thanks for your post and I am so sorry for what you went through.

Re: Blood in urine...Any info will help

I had these problems through the whole 2nd half of my last pregnancy. Everytime I went to the ER, I had blood and crystals in my urine and all the ultrasounds showed that my kidneys were just holding the fluid (hypernephrosis, i think). I had every test they could do, including a limited IVP. There were no stones and they were never able to come up with an explanation for this re-curring problem. They would admit me a few days at a time until it went away just in case it caused contractions. I always felt like it had something to do with my water consumption. I drank at least 128 oz. of water everyday plus at least 32 oz. of milk. Anyway, I had a healthy boy and the problems never came back. I'm crossing my fingers with this one.

Talking Re: Blood in urine...Any info will help

Looks like baby will be coming April 27th She said she would rather deliver him now than risk me having any other complications. Thank God! Now I have a day to look forward to. I am going to get nervous now. Got to get all the last minute stuff done. I'll keep ya'll posted if anything changes.
Wish me well! =)
