O it’s so frustrating! I remember just getting so used to peeing every hour or so when I was sleeping that when I finally delivered and the baby was up every 3 or so hours I was confused as to why I was getting so much uninterrupted sleep 🙂

Wear Depends?

MrsEME:  Ugh, that sounds horrible. Maybe having the Depends would allow you to at least relax the bladder muscle and not worry if even 1 tsp trickles out.

I’m glad you made this thread. I’m not quite as far along with you (30 weeks) but it’s already where after I finish peeing and stand up, it feels like I still have to go. I know I don’t have a UTI, so I figure it must just be the pressure on the bladder. It is really annoying and tiring.

I read somewhere that actually holding it when you feel like you have to pee (rather than going to the bathroom for a few drops) can help keep the urges under control later. It’s something about the signal that is sent to your brain that tells you that you have to go. So it’s like retraining your brain. I’m in the 3rd tri and feel like I have to go all.the.time. but find that I can hold it a wee bit longer when I’m sitting down. If I stand up, all bets are off!
