Always needing to 'go'!!!!

I seriously don't remember this with DD this early but I feel like I am always going to the toilet!!!

It feels like every hour I need to go! It's driving me mad!! I went before staff meeting tonight and then still had to sneak out mid way to go...If its like this now, what is it going to be like in the third trimester!!!!

Anyone else feel like this?

Oh my goodness!!! This is me to a T!!!! Bedtime is the worst-I've been waking between 4-6 times a night to go and this has been happening for a while now. I was pretty concerned like you because this is even before a decent sized baby is sitting on my bladder but, now I think I'm just getting used to it. And to think, we're not even half way to the finish line. Wink
Good luck to you Mama!!!

Yup this has been happening to me. I thought the second trimester it was supposed to get better, but it's getting worse. I know though for me it's cause he is sitting low and he is always head down, so he is right on my bladder. He's already just waiting to come out!

For me my first prego symptom was having to pee all the time... it tapered off after 6 weeks... when the MS hit lol. But, like you, its back.. full force. Luckily its not at night as much... now that I limit my liquid after dinner. Also, look at how much soda, or other drinks like that, that you are drinking. Especially diet sodas. They can make you pee more often Sad

I never had the need to pee all the time in early pregnancy this time, but suddenly I'm finding out where all the bathrooms are located everywhere I go! I swear this baby girl is just jumping on my bladder. Blum 3

Add me to the list! I can drink a cup of juice and have to pee 5 times afterwards!! I have said the same thing to my DH about it! I guess it happens more with the more kids you have! They say the bladder muscles weaken!

I've been having this too, I'll go and 5 minutes later have to go again but it's one of those things where I just feel that I have to pee really bad but it's like all the smoke none of the fire, if you get my drift. At night it's not so bad, I think I'm up once sometime between 10pm-3am and then again around 5am. I don't look forward to the 3rd trimester if it's this bad already.

What my Doc told me to do is lean back a bit on the toilet, try peeing a bit more, then lean forward... that way you are getting the baby to move a bit so that your bladder can empty more Smile

Me, too! I find that I often have to go BAD less than half an hour after going, especially in the afternoons. I've been trying to shift around when I do go to try and make sure I get empty the first time, but sometimes it still happens to me Smile

I'll have to try the leaning back some then leaning forward. Hopefully that will help because getting up like 5 times a night just plain sucks. The 3rd trimester is going to be a fun one!
