    @BettyW, after 3 years of recurrent constant utis I can tell you I have tried EVERYTHING! LOL and I wasn't pregnant so could do chinese herbs, ethical nutrients, cranberry juice/tablets, accupunture, natropath, diet changes, urologist/specialist appt etc you name it - I was at my wits end. Unfortunately for me nothing kicked them so when I had my first UTI at 6w preg with dd2 my urologist and OB had no choice but to put me on a long course of low dose anti biotics during the pregnancy knowing they wpuld continue otherwise. I am lucky I haven't had a full blown uti since and manage symptoms as soon as I get an inkling. Also during pregnancy utis present differently (they dont necessarily sting) so you may have one even if you dont think you do (thats why the do a pee test every appt to check for that amd other thongs like protien in the urine ) just to be aware. I am really pleased that natural medicine has worked for you, I wish I was as lucky!!
    Ah bugger, sorry to hear! I thought I had stumbled upon some secret magical cure!
    My Ob never did a pee test, at one point I convinced myself I had preeclampsia and was quite concerned about this!

    Thanks @ScubaGal. And here I was concerned I was stopping a week earlier than 12 weeks. Which I thought was the normal time to stop.
    FS said I could stop at 10weeks but like you I have some remaining.

    I too have to pee in a jar each appt... Tomorrow is our 12wks & when I get to stop crinone & progynova. Never thought the day would come. Such relief to get back to 'normal'

    I stopped taking crinone at 5 weeks because my p4 was in the 500s and they said it was high enough on its own.

    I remember reading that that's a 'standard' thing to happen at Ob appts - maybe I'll ask this time why they don't want my pee!

    Bear in mind there's a difference between cycle types that affects when you'll be told to stop depending on whether your body was producing progesterone on its own (as mine was with a natural fet). But yeah it's good to stop. I like the fact that everyday I don't have any spotting I know it's the pregnancy being nice and strong and not the progesterone.

    I have never been asked to do a pee test for my daughter with my Obgyn, he didn't even weigh me!!!

But then I started thinking oh, it's $500 I don't need to spend and you'll find out the gender soon enough..

    But *then* I was talking to DH this morning and he pointed out that we're already less "invested" (read - freaking out over everything!) with this baby than we were with our DS, and I thought well yeah, if I was offered this test with DS I'd have taken it in a second. So we have decided to do it, I'm booked in for Friday. The place I go to does a scan too so I get to see the heartbeat again which is nice.

    Thanks for your input, it's good to hear everyone's reasoning.
    we have decided to do the testing we are doing panaroma (which I think is the same as harmony and verifi) and my test is next Thursday..

    As part of the test hubby has to do a mouth swab did you ladies have to do that??
