Go when you need to. Don’t hold it and still drink lots of water. It is just one of those things we have to deal with and I think at this early it is probably not the baby really. It is the fact that we are always thirsty. It could be something else, which you should ask your doctor the next time you go in.

I am about 13 weeks. I have always been forgetful so thats nothing new. Restless at night, constantly thirsty and always needing to pee. My acne is out of control. Always hungry too….

I’d love to reassure you, but I can’t.  When I was PG with DS, the restroom was a good 5 min walk from my desk.  I would spend 10 min walking, 20 min sitting, and then I’d have to pee again.  Back and forth, all day long.  Up all night, up all day.  And you have to stay hydrated…  just always make sure you try before you leave anywhere!  Also, lean forward as you finish; this shifts the uterus and allows the bladder to more completely empty.

Unfortunately it doesn’t get better! I can pee and sneeze and somehow have a full bladder again that I need to empty. I cannot make it through a movie or a work meeting over an hour. If I’m awake I’m in the bathroom every 45 mins and sleeping it’s a miracle if I sleep for an hour and a half without waking up.

I hate people and books that sugar coat everything! I would read these books that described subtle changes and I felt like something was wrong with me. Pick up “Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy” it hilarious and tells it like it is.

@roxy821:  I second this!

I’m 24 weeks right now and I get up to pee about once an hour/two hours during the night. And during the day it’s not better. At work I alternate bathrooms that I go to so that people don’t think I’m crazy lol.

Just get used to being a pee machine. By the time you deliver they will be flipping you over like a pancake after you give birth and give you a head to toe sponge bath LOL. At that point you just have to laugh! You’ll also probably find your car keys in the freezer and forget everything every time you get in the car to go anywhere. The joys of pregnancy!

The random urges to pee really suck but yes they have gotten worse for me the further I along I get. I am now almost 25 weeks and when I have to go I HAVE to go. The other day we were on our boat which has no bathroom. I went pee before we left then about an hour into our fishing adventure BAM I had to pee like right NOW! Basically one of the most embarrasing things I have ever done in front of my husband was peeing off the back of the boat. Yes I pulled my pants down squated and peed. So embarassing but thank god no other boats were around. Now we are keeping our boating trips within 10 minutes of where our boat is docked.

One thing that would be fun for you since you are still in the beginning is to write down all of your baby brain moves. They might be really funny to look back on someday. I think I manage to have a baby brain moment once a day lol.

@RunningElley- I work in a company that is mostly men, so the ladies room is usually empty for me 🙂

I have a friend who is further along and tells it how it is, so I’m already prepared for all the peeing, farting, burping, and gagging.  Fun times ahead!

What annoys me most are the middle-of-the-night trips to the bathroom. I never used to do this, now I wake up every night and MUST. GO. I’m barely awake while I stumble to the bathroom.

This may be Too Much Information, but I also dribbled during the second half, if I laughed, sneezed, or coughed. I carried extra undies with me at all times 🙂

ANother one here that is going all the time anymore! It seems like all I do at work is fill up water, pee, sit down, drink water, and repeat. I’m in the bathroom at work now almost every hour. And three times during the night I wake up and it seems to be getting worse.

 

@Running Elley:  That’s so cute that you alternate bathrooms. I use the same one, not far from my desk and I’m so glad it is only like a 30 foot walk since I’m in there so much! lol

 

@roxy821:  Mine never feels empty. Sometimes, as I leave the bathroom I think, “Wow, I think I have to go again already”. LOL
