I'm not having any abdominal pain (other than the ones in the morning), no pain when urinating, I do have the frequent urination (who doesn't when pregnant!), and when I go not much comes out.
I have had many UTI's before. This doesn't seem like one to me but I am not sure if I need to get it checked out or if it's okay. I think I'm getting enough water, but maybe I'm not and maybe that's why I'm not peeing enough when I go. Thoughts? Opinions?

doesn't sound like a UTI to me, but you should still get your urine checked since having bacteria in your urine when pregnancy has a much greater risk than when you're not pregnant (in terms of loss of pregnancy, preterm labour etc etc).
So if you're concerned, go see your family doctor and get a urine test...
And if you really want to work out what's going on - do a bladder diary: record what you drink and when, and when you pee and how much (measure it out each time)... then you'll know whether you've got a bit of bladder overactivity for whatever reason (and there are a lot of reasons...)
I agree...doesn't really sound like it. But you never know. I had a UTI around 10 weeks last pregnancy, and I had no symptoms whatsoever. It was only found at my initial ob appointment when they checked my urine.
Are you pumping for your little one? Planning to pump?

The same thing has been happening to me since before I found out I was pregnant. DH has even commented on what a weak stream I have! At both of my past 2 appts with my midwife she took a urine sample and both times they came back negative for UTI. I agree it doesn't hurt to get tested, if mine continues like this I'll probably get tested each time i go for an appt
