Could I be Pregnant?!/Pregnancy: Bladder infection

Question
Hello, what can be done about bladder infection during pregnancy besides taking antibiotics? My daughter absolutely doesn't want to take antibiotics to avoid any possible (known or unknown) negative effect on a fetus. Is there a way to postpone the treatment with antibiotics until the baby is born and what can she do meanwhile? Thanks.

Answer
Sorry but I was just able to get to your question. I would like to advise that you go to your regular doctor to find out the solution to this problem. Please let me know what happens. I am curious to know. I just had some kind of bladder or urinary infection and was on antibiotics. But of course, I am not pregnant. You can email me at Carieichel@aol.com
