I thought frequent urination was supposed to ease up in the 2nd trimester? I must've been up at least 7 times last night and I've already been to the bathroom 3 times in the past 2 and a half hours at work.

Just needed to vent! My bladder's driving me nuts. The babies must be right on top of it now.

I don't get the frequent urination thing until the last couple months unless I happen to be drinking more or eat watermelon. If I eat watermelon I'm up all night going but normally I only have to get up once which is normal for me even when I'm not pregnant.

It continues to get worse until the very end when at night you are up every 60-90 minutes. I am up once a night right now, but go every 60-90 minutes or so during the day.

that's Y I have a rule that I only eat watermelon in the morning time or by lunch time so this way I'm not up all night going to the bathroom.

I joked to dh last night that I spend most of my day going to the bathroom or going to the kitchen to get the girls juice. I still wake up 2-3 times on an average night.

Nope... just gets worse through pregnancy as your bladder gets squished with the growing and shifting going on in there Enjoy!

You have twins. All rules of "normal" pregnancy go out the window. I've had two other kids and this twin pregnancy is so different!

My 4-year-old asked me the other day why I wasn't in the bathroom. I replied "Because I dont need to pee right now." To which he answered, "But I thought the babies make you pee ALL DAY mommy!" LOL.

The 15th week was my worst week by far this pregnancy! I could feel the baby squished against my bladder and I had to reposition to get more pee out.

However, this week, (just a week later!) I feel significant relief from that. I think he/she was just on her way up higher!

In the end though, you're screwed, lol! I peed my pants to many times in the last 6 weeks of pregnancy!

^^ I have already started the "oh, crap, I have to sneeze..." problem, which, of course, relates to need for panty liners AAAK!

I feel like mine has gotten better. I used to get up 5+ times a night to pee, now its about 2-3 times depending on how much water I drank before bed lol I expect it to get worse again though

I sneezed and peed on myself for the first time this pregnancy yesterday. What a joy.


I'm only at the point where I need only 1, maybe 2 pees during the night. But during the day it seems like my toilet paper is disappearing so fast.
