This is a weird question, but I am only asking because starting last night, I had to get up from bed 6 or 7 times in the span of 7 hours, because I was having pain in my right abdomen. It felt like it does when you have to hold your pee forever (like at an ultrasound or something). It didn't feel like I had a full bladder though, just that feeling in my sides.

Baby is moving, but not as much as usual. I can feel him if I consentrate, when usually I can see my stomach moving through my shirt.

Could I have a UTI? (I have never had one, so I don't know what they feel like) Is this just a normal growing thing? This is my 3rd baby, and I don't remember this at all.

It sounds like it could be a UTI.

I get up about twice a night to pee and I go prolly 4-5 times during the day. I think you might want to get checked for a UTI like MellieB mentioned.

I pee all the time. lol I have very efficient kidneys. I can fill my bladder in about 15 minutes. I remember I peed right before my u/s (I couldn't hold it anymore) and as we were walking back I downed a bottle of water. Well 15 mins into the u/s I asked if I could pee. She was like "well I couldn't get that measurement with your bladder not full, let's check" so she moves the wand and was "Oh my, it's very full now!!".

I've always peed a lot though, preggo or no preggo. I pee about every hour, hour and a half at night, but every time I pee, I'm thirsty so I end up drinking a dixie cup of water...

Does it hurt when you pee? I've had one UTI and I know I felt like I had to pee constantly but it KILLED me when I did.

I pee a LOT during the day.. maybe due to potty training, Holden peeing makes me wanna pee.

At night usually I only have to get up once, but I have to pee SO bad when I do go.. and when I wake up I have to run

It doesn't hurt to pee, I just have this constant feeling like I have to pee really bad, even if I don't. But all of the pressure/pain is higher up in my abdomen, not in my bladder. It's really weird.

Hmm, well I have no idea but i'd say I agree with the other ladies- probably best to get it checked out! I know UTIs can quickly turn into kidney infections (been there, and had pain in my abdomen that got so bad I couldn't lift my left leg at all).

I've never had one either so I can't help you, but I would get it checked, just in case.
I pee about every 45 minutes, no joke. It's from my fibroid, puts pressure on my bladder. If I'm actually drinking a lot, I pee about every 30 minutes. PITA!!

I work for urologist and your symptoms could be a UTI. Pain, pressure and frequency can all be signs of a UTI. I have those a lot but I have issues anyway. I have always been a person who is in the bathroom constantly. A guy at works teasingly calls me "She who pees a lot" It would not hurt to get a urinalysis. And it could avoid more pain and infection if you do have one. If nothing else, it would set your mind at ease. And your OB should be able to just do a dipstick test to check.

I wake up anywhere from 1-4 times at night to pee. I've never had a UTI though, so I don't know about that.

I think it can be different from person to person and depending on where baby is inside of you as to how much pressure is on your bladder?...

I'm going every 2-3 hours or so which isn't too bad. I do trickle when I sneeze and have to change. Grrrr. LOLOLOL.

I go to the bathroom every couple of hours.

It could be the way the baby is laying, but it's best to have it checked out by a doctor.

Well, I am back to normal now. Maybe it was just growing pains? Totally weird. But now I'm back to only getting up 2 or 3 times, and not in any pain.

How is movement now?

I feel like I just pee all day long! I peed 4 times in a half hour last night after dinner and 2 glasses of water, it actually ran right through me.

He has actually been more active than ever today! My stomach was moving all over the place as soon as I got up. I guess that means that all is well.
