You know what sucks?

Trying to drink water near-constantly to stay hydrated means I pee freaking constantly. Isn't the baby supposed to life off my bladder around this time? Wink

I don't know about the baby lifting off the bladder, but my hubby laughs everytime I say I have to pee because it's so often. I feel like i'm running to the bathroom every half hour, no joke. I told him I see more of the bathroom and kitchen than any other room in our house, it's nuts.

My midwife asked me if had to use the bathroom less since the baby has moved up a little. I was like "no way, I'm using the bathroom even more." I hear ya on the peeing. It sneaks up on me too, like one minute I don't have to go and suddenly I'm squeezing just to make it to the bathroom in time.

I noticed last week that I only had to pee once at night instead of the 2-3 I was before. I am 17 weeks. It will get better soon, then of course it will get worse! Smile

Happy 17 weeks Cristan!! I knew you were ahead of me..but I wasn't sure how many days.

As far as me - I can usually sleep through the night, but during the day when I'm drinking water I'm peeing ALL THE TIME.

I hate water.

YES!! It's supposed to get better!! I am going to the bathroom like crazy! Since I'm a teacher I have to find random teachers that pass by my classroom to watch my class. There have been 2 instances where I nearly peed my pants!
