Q&A: Cutting down on toilet trips in late pregnancy?

Lately I've been needing to pee all the time again (it got better for a little while during my second trimester). What's going on, and is there any way to cut down on bathroom breaks?

Between the masses of extra blood in your body (meaning more fluids running through your kidneys) and the pressure of your ever-expanding (shall we say giant?) uterus, it's no wonder you're spending so much time, er, powdering your nose. You won't find total relief until baby arrives, but here are three tips for spending a little less time on the toilet.

Get it all out
Make an effort to empty your bladder completely each time you pee. Lean forward to add a little pressure to your bladder and get all the urine out.Bonus: This also helps prevent UTIs.

Drink the right stuff
Stay away from coffee, tea, and alcohol, all of which can keep you running to the ladies room. (You should be steering clear of alcohol and caffeine anyway, of course.)

Ease up in the evening
Curbing your liquid intake in the hours before bedtime might make your nightly bathroom runs less frequent. If you go this route, just be sure to get plenty of fluids in the daytime -- hydration is extra important as you move towards the big day.

I agree with this. I am pregnant in 6 months and I got very worried about the "daily needs" especially when I see Bathroom Vanities, flowing water or liquids. At first I tried to reduce liquids but don't do the same mistake that I did. Be properly hidrated for you and for your baby's health!

If you have bathroom modern vanities such a trip could actually prove to quite relaxing and comforting. My opinion is that it depends on your individual needs and you should take that into consideration. Good luck!!
