kidney infection
HI there Doc
In my second pregnancy i got a Kidney infection which wasnt diagnosed until i was admited to hospital in agony at 34 weeks and only after blood tests was it discovered. My daughter was born at 38weeks with phnamonia. we were advised that it was a secondary infection from the Kidney infection. I am now preg with my 3rd child I am worried. What are the chances that the same might happen again? Thanks

If you have no symptoms it is unlikely. You could have urines checked at regular intervals though.
