Nearly peeing myself every 5 mins- help!
I am nearly 26 weeks pregnant and I have recently started to feel immense pressure on my bladder (since Monday really). The baby is quite low and I think he's maybe breach because the kicks are so low down.

Anyway, I have been having to go to the loo recently a lot more and I also feel like I am going to wee myself even after I have emptied my bladder... am really having to use my pelvic floor muscles to stop the sudden I'm-about-to-pee-myself feeling!

Got the nurse at work to screen my urine and it seemed fine. No protein, no blood etc, so I am assuming I have no infection.

Help- how can I remedy this or am I going to have to buy tena ladies?!!! :( xx

No idea but I'm with you 100 percent. Last night I went to the loo 25 times before going to bed, and still had to get up to pee. I got a stinging sort of sensation when I stopped like you get with an infection, but then at the midwife today she tested and I don't have one. The cub is just jumping about on my bladder and making me hurt! I only ever feel kicks low down, too. I am seriously considering investing in those Tena lady pants so I can just dribble in bed (TMI, sorry!) or asking for a catheter!

At one point the cub did a big shifting movement which gave me relief for about half an hour - but then it came back to normal. Sigh.

Do you lean forward when you pee to empty fully? And then sit there a bit longer to make sure? And I find standing up helps, too - I have to position myself awkwardly over the loo but when I stand up I can get another teaspoon or so out.

God, the glamour of pregnancy, eh?

I had /have those symptoms plus abdominal pain and when I went to the mw yesterday she confirmed I had a urine infection and I now have anti biotics. It could be that LO is very low down though, so if there is no infection there, you are just gonna have to grin and bear it!!!

what a wee monkey he is lol. I did have a few high kicks last week but he must've moved back! I would rather though that I peed myself than have an infection! well, ony if it is a dribble. :rofl: xx

Im in the same boat, I go for a pee, walk out the bathroom then go back in minutes later. I think its the pressure of baby on my bladder because he feels really low at the minute. I have to run the loo often because im convinced if i dont ill pee myself.
