    yep, if bubs is 4/5 engaged you will defo be going to the loo more! Make sure when you do go that when you think you've finished to rock slightly back and forth or side to side - you may be suprised to have more come out - this will save going back 10 mins later after you have moved about some more. baby's head can stop you emptying your bladder fully at that stage.......

    Definitely! Since my LO started moving down I have been wearing a path to the loo. It is incredible. Sometimes a decent amount, sometimes an eggcup-ful but always a desperate NEED TO GO NOW need. Rocking is good or else you'll end up weeing, leaving the loo and thinking 'I need the loo' before you're even sitting down again.
