    If it is in your pee it could be a UTI that's gotten to your kidneys I would call your ob to get checked just to be safe.

    In your urine *usually* means a urinary tract infection. You will need to try and figure out if it's spotting or in your actual urine which is usually a UTI.

    Just to be on the safe side, best to see your care provider before it turns into a full blown kidney infection if it is a UTI and left untreated. In the meantime, drink HEAPS of water and cranberry juice and it's safe to take Ural as well. But I strongly urge you to have it seen to.

    It's caused by bacteria getting into your urinary tract and is very common in pregnancy. Dehydration is definitely not helpful, as if it's a UTI you need to flush out your system as much as you can, so drink plenty of water. Cranberry juice is beneficial too.

    Wipe yourself clean with a wipe. Then catch urine in a specimen cup or similar, then you'll be able to tell if its blood in your urine or if its bloody discharge that you see when you wipe.

    Either way, I wouldn't wait til Monday, a quick call to the hospital you're booked in at will tell you if you should go in.

    Do you have any pain not associated with urinating? Like pain while you are just sitting down?
