Does it sound like kidney infection or just UTI ?

10 wks pregnant - just got a copy of my labs. UA is cloudy with occult blood 1+, positive nitrate, 1+ leukocyte esterase and wbc of 10-20. I have burning with urination, low back pain and have nausea..but the nausea is probably pregnancy related. It's friday night...does it sound like kidney infection or just UTI? my doctor is not open until monday...maybe I should go to urgent care

THanks for the query
Yes it is UTI, the next thing would be to send a urine for culture to see what is growing.
You can wait till monday if u r not having fever, u can go to the ER if u do develop fever
UTI is common in pregnancy and in most cases it can be tackled well without any problems

Have a healthy life
