I was suffering from quite bad kidney pains last weekend and saw my GP on Monday. He has taken a urine sample and sent it off in case of a UTI but said it may be because I am not going to the loo as often as pre pregnancy and prescribed me lactulose.
He said it wont effect the baby as it isnt absorbed into the system and that I can pretty much self medicate - take more or less depending on the effect it has. I am currently taking 2 x 2 teaspoons a day and it seems to have had "some" effect. Pre pregnancy I would go daily and that changed to maybe once every 3 days. Now I seem to be going once every 2 days but with some effort on my part and I have turned into a wind machine too! I am loathe to up my dose as I don't want the "other" problem either.
Has anyone had a similar experience? What did you do? Did it get better?
