I swear by the NHS website for this kind of thing. Sounds like they're taking no chances just in case & will prob drain kidney with a catheter. xxx

midwife told me that they dont drain in pregnancy as if it gets to the point where it is so bad they will just induce. As it is the pressure of the baby causing the problem. Hoping i can get through to at least 35-36 weeks
