26 years old with low grade t.c.c.

I heaven't posted here in awhile so I decided to update my story.  In October of 2007 I found out that I was pregnant for the fourth time (oops)!  One of the first phone calls I made was to the urologist.  I was due for a scope in Dec but he felt we should wait until I was well into my second trimester.  I just had a cysto last week.  The procedure was uncomfortable as always.  Everything looked good Thank God!  I did experience a lot of cramping after the procedure.  He asked my obstetrician to do a UA at each appointment and decided not to scope me again unless there is hematuria for the remainder of my pregnancy.  He graduated me to a six month schedule and said he would also check my upper tract at the next appointment which will be my two year mark.  There was debate on wether or not to use the scope during my pregnancy at all.  In the end the docs felt the benefits out weighed the risks.  I am glad that I went ahead and had the procedure.
