    I also pee a lot — because I drink a sh*tload of water! For some reason I’ve trained my body to drink over a gallon of water a day — as in, if I start to slip, I get super duper thirsty. So yeah, when you drink that much water, it’s got to come out! I probably pee a good once an hour while I’m at work, plus a couple in the morning and more in the evening. So that puts me solidly in the 13-16 camp 🙂

    I pee so much that my doctor screened me for diabetes.  I also pee a large volume… I had to do a 24 hour urine collection and I filled two entire jugs all the way full, like if it were a 26 hour urine collection I would have needed a third jug!

    Healt-wise I am A-OK!  No diabetes, no renal issues, I just drink a LOT of water and pee it all out. 

    If it concerns you, schedule an appointment just to get a once over and make sure there’s nothing else going on 🙂

    I also go really frequently becuase I drink SO much water!  DO NOT hold it in.  I’ve gotten some UTIs in the past because I had long massages I had to do and I held it.  It is awful!  As long as you feel like your fluid intake is equal to the amount you go to the bathroom I’m sure you are good to go.

    LOL – I pee very infrequently (and I do drink a lot of water), but I guess I have the biggest bladder ever – usually when I wake up, when I get home from work, and before I go to bed. FI always makes fun of me, though, because apparently I pee very loudly. Hey, if there’s that much volume in me, it’s going to be loud when it comes out!

    I voted 6-8x.  I drink a loooooooooooot of water.

    Also, TMI – ever since I had a UTI about 4 years ago, I can’t hold my bladder as long as I used to be able to (the pressure starts to hurt).  This also adds to my frequency.

    I go alllll the time. But it depends on the day…some days I pee once an hour some days I pee like 5 times…but its never less then that. It all depends on how much I drink, when I drink(alcohol) I swear once I go the first time, I go every 15-30 min after that.

    @MsPiggy:  hahah you broke the seal!!! I always try to hold it a little longer when I go for the first time while drinking… because after I break the seal… I’m at the toilet every 5 minutes!

    It really depends on how much water I’m drinking… I drink a lot of water and have become acustomed to drinking a lot… so when I’m on top of it… I pee like every hour.. lately, which annoys the crap out of me.. I’ve started waking up in the middle of the night and waking up early to go pee!! IDK what happened because I used to be able to go to bed having to pee and then sleep forever. Maybe I’m just drinking more water.

    I would say I’m probably average but I have a friend who pees a trillion times a day haha. It’s a running joke in our group of friends but at least we can always count on her to let us know where the bathrooms are 😉

    I pee like it’s my job. All day long. It’s really annoying. A case of Costco toilet paper doesn’t last long around here. I’ve had tests done and I have a sensative bladeer. If I eat or drink citrus that’s it, I’m peeing double time.

    Woah! Seriously? Even when I’m drinking water all day I go maybe 4 times!

    But then my family does make fun of me that bladder control is my superpower. Even as a kid I could always ‘hold it’.

    I forget to pee the way skinny people forget to eat. I’ll be sitting on my foot, wiggling my leg, and realize ‘wow, I’ve had to go for like 3 hours and I keep forgetting’.

    The day before yesterday I was sick and so yesterday I seriously drank 6 or 7 bottles of orange juice. I ended up peeing about 10+ just at work! Then we had dinner and drank a bottle of wine, and I pee a lot when I drink alcohol, so I probably packed on another 10+. Whew..
