checking in with pregnant moms
Hi Pregnant Moms! Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying lots of little kicks.
Just checking in to get an idea of how you are managing pain relief during your pregnancy. I am 30 weeks - and my OB told me to stop taking the imipramine about 15 weeks ago. (It was working surprisingly well.) Since that time, I have been getting progressively more uncomfortable ... believe it or not, my urologist will not see pregnant patients so I have to rely on my OB for advice - and she doesnt truly understand whats happening. She is trying to treat me for a UTI. I feel like I am going backwards ....
Has anyone been successful with occasional use of pyridium? It appears to be safe in pregnancy ...
Thanks for your suggestions!

sorry to hear your OB is trying to treat you for a UTI. You would think they would know better. If I had a nickel for everytime someone (docs included) told me I needed to drink cranberry juice I would be rich! Must be frustrating. I have heard others say that they have taken Pyridium during pregnancy, but myself managed without.
Good Luck.~TRACEY~ Wife and Mother of three beautiful

Hi newstart and congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm 12 weeks along. I haven't personally taken pydridum while pregnant - what did your pharmacist and/or doctor say about it?
Take care!My story of healing and hope http://www.ic-network.com/patientstories/alexa.html

My ob/gyn told me it was okay for me to use Tylenol & Tylenol PM to sleep. This has worked relatively well for me since my IC has gotten milder in the second trimester. I also watch my diet, take hot showers, and get a massage from the hubby when Tylenol just isn't doing the trick. This may sound cheesy but visualization has always worked for me too. I just try imagining being in a relaxing place with no pain and it usually works to lessen the pain although not making it go away completely.
