Answer: Hello darling UTI’s are more common during pregnancy because of changes in the urinary tract. The uterus sits directly on top of the bladder. As the uterus grows, its increased weight can block the drainage of urine from the bladder, causing an infection. And it generally won't affect the baby. You can help prevent UTIs during your pregnancy by: emptying your bladder frequently, especially before and after sex wearing only cotton underwear nixing underwear at night avoiding douches, perfumes, or sprays drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated avoiding any harsh soaps or body wash in the genital area
