Hello, I am happy to help you with your question.

Hopefully by the time you get this you have gotten further help. Based on the fact that you are pregnant, with low back pain, rib pain, a diagnosed kidney infection, headache and a subjective fever, you have a poorly treated kidney infection. In most cases if it has failed treatment with outpatient medications, then you need to be hospitalied for IV antibiotics.

I hope this helps. Please consider the Premium service if you would like a more prompt or detailed answer.
