Frequent Urination


Anyone else having to pee a zillion times a day? I can't go more than 20mins without having to go to the bathroom. I don't remember it being this bad in my first pregnancy apart from nearer the end. Surely this isn't normal!!

Same here! I am constantly having to go to the bathroom. I know it wasn't this bad with DS, but I think it's worse now because DD sits super low most of the time, while DS never, ever dropped low. I would love to go just an hour or two without a bathroom break!

Oh I thought I was the only one, it's so bad I wake up almost every 30 to 40 minutes throughout the night. If I wait I have horrible pAins.

I have it too! I never did last pregnancy, and it has only just kicked in now.

I have it too. I wonder if it is due to weaker muscles from previous births. I go about every 20 minutes, and at least 3 times a night.

I did worry that I might have a UTI although I have no other symptoms. Most of the day I don't have to go as much as 20/30mins, it's only really in the evenings or after having a cup of tea - just goes straight through me!

Well, there's your problem hun. Tea is a diuretic, so it's meant to go straight through. I'm an Iced tea drinker myself, and yes that always has me running to the potty. No worries, just try to have your last tea a few hours before bed and it should get better

I only drink camomile or rooibos tea anyway but I've cut even those out in the evenings now as one cup means about 5 toilet trips!
