I had some spotting last week Tuesady, went to the ER , the Dr pick up I have a Urinary Tract Infection. They have given me an antibiotic to clear the infection. However the cramps are still there especially when i move around. I was booked off for the whole of last week. I have notice the minute i get a bit too active i get these pains. I want to know if i should be concerned or if this is normal?

It does sound a bit more than normal but you wouold need to see your doctor to assess whether this is preterm labour or not.
