See your OB soon: You should make sure you are seeing your OB quickly to discuss this issue and to carefully watch you during this pregnancy. Certainly any possible infection needs to be treated right away. Further, you should be checked for other infections that can lead to premature labor. Best of luck for a healthy pregnancy!
