The frequent urination doesn’t come into play until later (when the baby is pushing on your bladder).  Take a test!  Just for peace of mind.

@Chillmer: i think that I saw on another thread Mrs. DG actually mentioned that the frequent peeing can happen earlier too due to a change in hormones or something? I don’t remember the details but I remember her saying that she peed the most in her first trimester! our bodies are weird 🙂


@JewishBride: Are you late? I’d definitely take a test (if you’re not late yet maybe the early response one?) or go see your doc. Peace of mind is great

It’s possible that symptons are starting already.  I’d just take a test to be sure.

From what I remember my symptoms came on with a vengeance even before my missed period:  frequent urination, overwhelming fatigue, and extreme nipple sensitivity.  I’m moody to begin with, so that didn’t help much, lol, but nausea only happened with my 2 daughters (a month or so into the pregnancy).

@Chillmer: It’s true, I had a VERY frequent need to pee, especially several times a night before I was even late, so it actually is an early sign.

So, @JewishBride it’s possible that’s a sign, but there are other reasons for it, too.  The only real way to know is to test, so maybe you can do that just to be sure?

The frequent urination is definately common in the 1st trimester. That was my 1st major symptom. I was peeing twice as often as before.

I’m only 16 weeks today, and have been peeing constantly for the last 8 weeks or so. No idea why, but it’s a huge increase since getting pregnant.

Usually, one doesn’t get sick until the sixth week, but take a test if you’re late.

I’m with most others.  I had to run to the potty all the time even before I was far enough along to take the test (which is why I found out we were having a baby at like 3 am…couldn’t hold it till morning and I was never that person before).  Missed period yet?  I say take a test, too.

@JewishBride:  If you still haven’t gotten your period you should test again in two days (my doc says pregnancy hormones double every two days).  I got a negative one day and a positive the next.  

A lot of women seem to get positive tests before their period is due but I wasn’t one of them, I only got it two days AFTER my period was late.  

And yes, it’s very normal to be disappointed, but just keep trying!

@JewishBride: early symptoms seem to vary so much for women so stick to the testing to get your info.  When I had my first missed period, my symptoms were exactly like PMS–cramps, tender breasts, little bit bloated–i totally swore my period was coming any day.  But I didn’t get the morning sickness at all and the exhaustion didn’t set in for me  until closer to 15 weeks.  Good luck and don’t get too disappointed yet!
