    If I don’t pee immediately before I go to sleep, I’ll be up in the middle of the night, guaranteed.

    I get up 3-4 times on average. But I have a history of kidney issues

    Yup… at least once. It sucks!!! I went to a urologist and everything… but apparently nothing is wrong with me. I was told to limit fluids before bedtime.

    I also wake up fairly easily, so that doesn’t help. The second I wake up I have to pee or I will get nightmares and/or sleep very restlessly. Ugh.

    @sweetchiquita12:  It depends…this happened a lot with my greyhound because HE needed to get up to pee, so if he was going to pee…I was going to take a minute an tinkle too….so it stopped after he passed away.  But sometimes, I will wake up, and go like…once in the night….but the thing I hate, is if I have to pee, but I’m so deeply asleep that in my dream, I start hunting for a bathroom…and its always some Tolkein-esque journey for a potty and I’m like, wading through streams and climbing up buildings, and I’ll get to the bathroom and then….its like a toilet in the middle of a freakin sidewalk!  NO WAY….so I continue to hunt, until I finally DO wake up…and then I go.

    Yes, most nights! Not weird at all. FI does too, and often we wake each other up and both need to go.

    At least twice. I have always been like this, but it is frustrating.

    I seriously have to plan when I go places, like not have a drink for an hour before I have to get on a train or go somewhere with no bathroom. So anoying. I am bit worried about getting older and needing to go more haha.

    No but it’s the first thing to do once I’m out of bed in the morning.

    I do wake up to drink water though. I always have water on my night table for that reason.

    @sweetchiquita12:  I’m like you! I pee right before bed and always have to pee during the night, sometimes twice. I only drink about half a glass of water before bed (have to because I take pills at night).

    @Nona99:  I have these dreams too. Awful! Haha, or sometimes in my dream I’ll find some, and then the toilets are just the nastiest and most FILTHY things ever. Gross. 

    I usually get up to pee once a night. My DH gets up to pee multiple times a night (apparantly he is a pregnant woman) so he if wakes me up I’ll have to go too.

    I used to get up to pee alot.  My Dr. had me tested for diabetes, I didn’t have it, but now I just try not to drink anything after like 8pm. That seems to help.
