Q&A: Pregnant and can't stop peeing?

Why am I peeing so much, and is there any way to cut down on how many times I pee during the day? It's driving me crazy!

The Bump Expert

There are a few reasons behind your steady stream. For one thing, the hormone hCG triggers an increase in blood flow to the pelvic area, causing you to make more pee. In addition, the efficiency of the kidneys improves during pregnancy, so your body gets rid of waste products (i.e. pee) more quickly. And let's not forget your growing uterus, which puts increasing pressure on your bladder as it gets bigger. (And bigger!)

The good news is, this pressure lifts once the uterus rises into your abdominal cavity in the second trimester. Until then, be sure to lean forward when you pee to completely empty your bladder, which might cut back on trips to the WC. But don’t stop downing the liquids -- your body needs them.

Sorry but when your prego your body works the best it ever will.. and YES your Kidney function works A++ like never before. This is for good reason too, your baby needs nutrients, and your kidneys help with all of this, especially for ridding your body of wastes ( urine ). So even though you may not be drinking that much at some points in the day and you have to pee AGAIN- its not always because "the baby is sitting on your bladder" .. your bladder is full from your kidneys that are in overdrive!!!

I'm 16 weeks and I go every 2-3 hours on average. When you I went for my ultrasound, they showed me how fast my bladder filled up. That is normal and just part of pregnancy. However, it is no picnic!

Most of us think thus far that your affordable for ones $$ happen to be wardrobe as a result of Unwanted Fast. Which sort towards utilize is based on very much around the weather. Our own DS was also short-term with regard to sleepers and also jeans, for that reason he or she only used onesies as well as we all covered his / her limbs inside of a blanket (up to the point he kicked this from). Don't forget to select from, many rookies want a terrific way to. Still : DS will be 4 months -- people will not definitely "dress" your pet right up. It will be solely onesies along with slacks together with sleepers during the night. warcraft 3 cheats

I just found out today that I am preggers (I'm still in shock!), and am 4 weeks. Yesterday, I must have peed 20 times during the day at work, and got up once during the night to pee. I do drink alot of liquids, but did not drink any more yesterday than I normally do. Do you think that my excessive peeing yesterday was because of the pregnancy? I mean, could that be happnening already? This early? Or was it just a fluke?

I've had two babies within a short space and noticed that I peed much more with the second than with the first. I'm not sure if it was a pelvic floor issue, maybe it never recovered between babies? Into my third trimester with DD I noticed that my control at night was compromised and needed to get some protection for the mattress. If anyone else is finding the same thing, definitely get a couple of Brolly Sheets off Amazon or their website www.brollysheetsusa.com. They're also good for protection if you're bf'ing and leak at night. Let's face it, nobody likes waking up to a wet milk patch in the bed :(

I am 9 weeks today have been peeing every 2.5 hours at night since 7 weeks and I just look at it as good practice for when you have to get up every 2-3 hours at night to feed baby! Congrats ladies! :)
