Take a test!: If your cycle was irregular this month it might make sense to take a pregnancy test and see. This might be the first sign!

Pregnancy: The delay in your cycle start is a more likely clue that you may be pregnant. The bladder infection will not affect the chance or let you know that you are pregnant.
