i got up to go to the bathroom. then, i made myself dinner and ate it. i just got settled in bed with my laptop and some drinks. i haven't had a drink since before dinner, but i already have to pee again!!
does your bladder actually shrink during pregnancy or does it just get shoved out of the way? if it's the later i wish she would pick an organ of lesser importance, like my lungs or my kidneys. i prefer my bladder in it's original position.
I think when I stand up, the baby is sort of blocking the exit (urethra?) from the bladder so that it doesn't completely empty. Then when I lie back down she moves and what's remaining wants to come out. Then I stand up and it's blocked again. Never-ending cycle. That's my theory anyway.
Try leaning forward when you pee. This is the first pg that I remember having to do this and its difficult with a big belly. Believe me, you want your lungs! I've got babies up under my ribs and going to the bathroom winds me to walk there. Sometimes I can't breathe just sitting here. I'm not amused!
