I am 20 weeks pregnant and I think I have a severe kidney infection?

I am 20 weeks pregnant and I think I have a severe kidney infection.
I have severe pains at the bottom of my belly on the right hand side and also at the bottom of my back on the right hand side. My urine smells quite foul and I have discharge. My midwife said if the pains don’t go then she recommends I go to the hospital and the pains are still there.

It can be related to kidney problems like a severe Infection or stone formation in kidneys..
Get an ultrasound and urine culture done so that appropriate cause of the symptoms and will be treated accordingly..

As you are 20 weeks pregnant, further care should be taken to avoid complications, so it will be better to consult a Physician soon..
